We all know how hard it can be to eat healthy at work. The constant stream of snacks in the pantry requires more willpower than we’re capable of. Luckily, there are treats that will fill up your “hangry” stomach without the extra calories. Here are 6 snacks you can keep right at your desk. No more mindless munching!
1. KALE CHIPS
This leafy snack will satisfy your craving for something salty and crunchy. Plus, it’s rich in vitamins A, C, and K. Low-calorie, fibrous, and nutrient-dense, kale makes it impossible to feel guilty about eating an entire bag!
