When you’re so busy, it may seem difficult to prepare filling snacks for work. Luckily, there are tons of quick healthy meals that will keep you healthy and satisfied! Here are 10 of them:

Seeds

There are so many different kinds—pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy, chia, you name it! Bonus? Seeds are full of protein! Just grab yourself a baggie full and munch while you work!

Oatmeal

You don’t have to do the old stovetop method anymore--you can take a microwavable packet into work and have a healthy, simple and delicious meal! Don’t forget to sprinkle some cinnamon on it! Other fruits work too. Add whatever you want to make the ultimate oatmeal treat! 

Dried Fruit

Craving something sweet? Dried fruit is a healthy choice with lots of fiber. Simple and delicious! When your sweet tooth kicks in, remember to gravitate towards fruit! There’s apples, bananas, apricots, berries, cantaloupe, coconut, kiwi, lemons, mango, nectarines, peaches, papaya, pineapple, and so much more!

Roasted Seaweed

Chock-full of minerals and vitamins, this dish is easy to prepare and perfect for a quick lunch break. 

Greek Yogurt

You can never go wrong with yogurt. Add fruits like blueberries for an extra kick. You can also buy one where the fruits are already in the yogurt—an even quicker healthy snack! Make sure that you add granola!

Cottage Cheese

Add some blueberries and/or raspberries, or maybe even peaches. Sounds unconventional, but we swear you’ll love it! Many people don’t think they don’t like cottage cheese, but it has such great health benefits!

Nut butter

Nut butter is a spread made from crushed nuts like almond, cashew, macadamia, pecan, pistachio, and walnut. It’s like peanut butter, but healthier and with less added sugar. Get some fruit or some crackers and dig in!
