That are not sugary ones.
We as office workers enjoy sugar, particularly at morning tea time. But did you know that too much sugar is bad for you? Not only is it bad for your teeth, it’s bad for your waistline. As sedentary people, we should aim to have less added sugar.
Added sugar is the sugar you find in most cakes, sweets and other processed foods. So here are seven great snack ideas.
Hard-boiled eggs have about 6g of protein and will keep you full for longer. Do it the night before and you leave it in your fridge. Take it out in the morning and put it in a small container.
Or if time is not on your side you can buy them for $4-$5 at the supermarket on your way to work.
Greek yoghurt and fruit
I love Greek yogurt as its low in fat and has the good bacteria in there. I love to have it with fruit for that extra sweetness.
A cheese jaffle
You can make this in the office kitchen. Here you’ll need a sandwich press which you can buy at Harvey Norman (just make sure you get the boss’s permission to buy it)! Or you might already have one.
Then you’ll need just bread and cheese. You can buy these at the supermarket.
An egg omelette without the toast.
Here you can order this from your favourite cafe downstairs.
A litre of plain milk is about $4-$5 and is about 120 calories. It also helps you get your calcium needs in.
Plain oats without the sugar and with milk is great. You can do overnight oats if you want.
Home baked treats
You can do a huge batch over the weekend of cakes, biscuits etc and you don’t have to put a lot of sugar in there.
Another one I like are nuts as they have good fats and you can buy them for $1 at Woolies. There are many different varieties of nuts.
