Snack ideas - smoothie


One of the toughest parts of sticking to a strict, balanced nutrition plan is maintaining that consistency while at work.

We usually take short breaks during a typical work day, and often grab a snack to keep our energy levels up. Planning meals for work might not be so difficult, but planning between meal snacks can often be problematic. Despite this, it can be done with just a little extra effort.

With a little preparation and the proper mind-set, you’ll be able to make sure that those mid-morning and late afternoon snacks don’t damage your diet!

Let’s check out a few easy and tasty snack ideas that are simple enough to get ready!


Mixed Fruit

Fruit is a superb source of nutrients and vitamins, yet most of us don’t eat enough. Bringing a banana or an apple to work needs no preparation, costs little and is a delicious means to amp up your energy levels. For these on the lookout for a bit more selection, why not put together a fruit salad? Chop up your favorite fruits and berries and you’ll have a scrumptious treat that won’t throw off your diet plans!



Good yoghurts can be great sources of probiotics, which are essential for sustaining a healthy gut biome. Similar to fruit, yoghurts need little to no preparation. If plain yoghurt isn’t your bag, add a little fruit to it and you’ll make sure that your afternoon snack doesn’t wreck your diet or your waist line!



Another simple snack idea and great way to treat yourself during the work day is the humble smoothie. A simple smoothie brought to work, can help ensure that you’re getting sufficient fruits and veggies in your diet, and provides you with a wonderful energy kick when the afternoon lag hits! Smoothies also let you mix up your snacks day to day, which means that each day bring a brand new treat!



Salads don’t need to be huge, extravagant affairs. A plain and simple salad can include a hard-boiled egg and a few of your favorite greens. The preparation time for a salad snack is minimal, but the advantages are huge. Tasty and nutritious, salads are among the most under-utilized snack ideas.


So, ditch the chocolate bar and chips, and opt for a simple, wholesome, and tasty work snack instead!
