Easy To Pack Healthy Snacks For Work

Healthy snacks at work

Eating healthy is great for your body, not just because you're getting all the right nutrients, but also because you will look and feel good. For those who have a 9-6 job, this might sound difficult, but it's not if you plan ahead. We usually do our grocery shopping on Saturdays and I always decide what I'll need for the entire week (including snacks). And whenever I'm going to work, I always pack lunch and snacks so I'm not left hungry. Because once you're feeling hungry at work with no healthy snacks near by, you'll be reaching for nasty junk food which you don't need.

Healthy nuts as snacks at the office

Since I'm at work, I need the snack to be ready and fuss free. I want to be able to get it out and start eating without needing to prep at the office. I usually snack at about 4pm, unless I'm feeling really hungry earlier. I try to vary the snacks daily & weekly to keep me from getting bored. Some of the healthy snacks I pack include:

Fresh fruits as healthy snacks at the office

Fresh Fruits

Fresh fruits are great for snacking because they provide lots of vitamins and are easy to consume. I usually pick fruits like bananas, apples, grapes, kiwis, strawberries and blueberries. I always wash my fruits at home and if needed cut them up, then I'll either put it in a zip lock bag or a container. I also always eat a handful of nuts with my fruits. This provides protein and keeps you full longer.

Dried Fruits

Sometimes I'm not big on prepping food for the next day due to being extremely busy or just so exhausted I can barely make it to bed. For times like this, I always try to keep some dried fruits available at home and work. This way I can skip my food prep that night. My favourite dried fruits are goji berries, cranberries and apricots.


Nuts are a great source of protein, and healthy snacks which you can easily have at work. You can keep some at the office or prep them the night before. I usually vary my selection of nuts between almonds and walnuts which haven't been salted. But I'll occasionally have some salted cashew nuts because I've been unable to find them in any other form.


At some point I didn't like the taste of humus, but now, I don't think you can ever open my refrigerator and not find at least one jar. Humus is a bit messier than the snacks I've suggested above, but it's so good and I love it. You can have some carrots, cucumber or celery with it, as well as rice cakes.

Peanut/Almond Butter

Peanut/Almond butter is another slightly messier alternative but tastes really good. Scoop out a small amount into a jar and take some sliced up apples in a zip lock bag, and you're good to go. You can also make a PB & banana roll as a snack or even for breakfast.

Healthy snacks which are easy to pack and eat at work

Those are some of my current snack selections. You can also make yoghurt with strawberries and banana, or chia pudding as a snack, but these are my less popular choices. Please let me know how you maintain a healthy lifestyle while working an office job.

What other snacks would you recommend for the office?
