15 Easy, High Protein Snacks To Bring To The Office
Stock up on these nutritious noshes when the 3 p.m. lull hits. It’s a busy day in the office: you have a pressing deadline and your fingers are rapidly typing away until your stomach starts to rumble. You start to lose your speed, and you feel tired. But you don’t need a nap—what you need is a high-protein snack. Research has shown that high protein, low sugar snacks can help squash hunger better than sugary, carb-heavy noshes out there. In fact, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that Americans might be overindulging in unhealthy snacks while on the job, amounting to almost an extra 1,300 calories a week! These snacks mostly contained added sugars and sky-high levels of sodium.
What’s not so surprising is that more than 70 percent of the calories were from free food. While it’s tempting to snack on every office freebie, it’s best to stock up on more nutritious options. To help you keep your snacking in check, we rounded up some high protein snacks that are totally office-friendly. Eating these low-sugar, protein-packed snacks (with no less than seven grams of the muscle-building nutrient per serving) will be the key to staying focused on that big project due at the end of the day as well as for sparking weight-loss results and suppressing your appetite.
