So now that you’re looking beyond the usual turkey sandwich and bringing healthy stuff to lunch like turkey chili and whole wheat pitas, look beyond the vending machine for snacks to accompany your lunch or just to keep the munchies away throughout the day. Toting your own snacks to work can help you avoid the chocolate bar in the vending machine (and save some quarters). While fruit is always a good choice for a light, healthy snack, try more unusual snacks like wasabi peas or olive tapenade to introduce more variety into your diet plan.
String Cheese (Choose low-fat or nonfat varieties)
Wasabi Peas (The spiciness may help prevent overeating)
Protein Bars (Make your own to avoid brands with tons of sugar)
Greek Olives (Typically high in sodium avoid if you have hypertension)
Olive Tapenade (Scoop up with pita wedges)
Pears (High water content helps keep you full)
Yogurt (Calcium can help the body release fat)
