Whoever said that snacking at the office can’t be healthy? Whether you’re on the run, putting in overtime, or cramming for a tight deadline with a client breathing down your back, eating healthy and getting your 5 meals a day can sometimes be a challenge. You need snacks to fill in the gaps & keep your energy levels up. The key is to prepare them ahead of time so that when you do get the urge, you’ll have less tendency to reach for something junky.
Here’s one of my recent favourites. Grapes and berries with a serving of no fat cottage cheese. It offers a good balance of carbs and protein to help fill the hunger gap. You got the sweetness of the grapes, the tartness and antioxidents of the berries, and lean protein from the cottage cheese, which will help keep you full longer. I usually like to prepare 3-4 servings the night before and keep them in the fridge at work. It’ll save you time and give you a stash of food to fall back on for the next day or 2. Your abs will thank you too 🙂Ingredients: 1 handful of black Grapes, 9 raspberries, 125g no fat cottage cheese.
