When you’re hungry it’s easy to mindlessly grab a handful of chips or cookies or some other snack filled with fat and sugar.
Snacking isn’t evil; it’s what you snack on that’s the problem. In fact, snacking is an effective way to control and even lose weight because it prevents you from becoming ravenously hungry and overeating at mealtime.
With a decently stocked pantry and refrigerator, and a couple of extra minutes, you can create easy, guilt-free snacks and mini-meals that are both satisfying and good for you.
Here are 5 of our favorite delicious guilt free snacks you can enjoy at work.
1. Fruit Skewers with Honeyed Yogurt Dip
