Speak Up: What Healthy Snacks Do You Keep at Work?

My tummy starts grumbling around 3 p.m., and when it does I'm always thankful that I have healthy snacks just an arm's distance away. Keeping healthy snacks at my desk prevents me from choosing something more unhealthy to satisfy my hunger (like the treats from YumSugar that magically appear in the kitchen) and from eating everything in sight when I get home from work.

Currently, my desk drawer is holding an apple, some almonds, and a Larabar. I also brought a couple containers of nonfat Greek yogurt for the communal refrigerator. What snacks do you keep at work?

For myself, almonds, Fiber One bars, and Muscle Milk lights in the little fridge! BUT it's my job to stock the dept snack area, so I've been getting healthy things and everyone is happy: almonds, 100 calorie packs, dried fruit, and pretzels. No more Oreos and peanut butter crackers!

I always have a Luna Bar (Chocolate Peppermint) or Kashi GoLean Crunchy bar (Chocolate Almond) handy, plus mini Babybel light cheeses, apples (or other fruit - today it's kiwi), cream of wheat and oatmeal (keep these at my desk for emergencies) and tomato soup (the microwaveable kind). I'm never tempted by the vending machine!

Every Monday I stop at the grocery store on my way to work for fruit to fill the bowl I keep on my desk. This week is pears. I also keep some of those 100-calorie cookie packs so when I'm dying for chocolately goodness - I walk past the office candy dish and have one of those instead.

Well, it's debatable how healthy some of my snacks are, but I suppose they are the more healthy of their categories. I keep wheat toasted crackers (they help w/ nausea too), Raisin Bran, carrot sticks, popcorn (mini bags), and peanut butter.

Wow, I'm surprised(and pleased) at all the healthy answers! I usually keep a box of shredded wheat cereal, some babybel cheeses in my fridge and Trader Joes fruit leathers. I work on a college campus though so snacks are plentiful in the many little corner stores as soon as walk out of my office! Bin candy anyone? :)
