7 Yummy Smart Snacks Stack For The Office To Stay Full Without The Calories

Updated: Apr 16

As a business owner, it's easy to get so engrossed in the day's responsibilities that you don't make time to grab or make a healthy breakfast or lunch.

One moment you are on a marathon call with a demanding client and the next moment you find yourself hangry because you haven't eaten all day. Your stomach is growling so loud, you're afraid your assistant is going to hear it from her office.

This is the moment when it becomes rationalat least in your mindto justify eating that chocolate bar your kid left on your desk, or asking your assistant to drive to the fast food joint down the street for a burger and fries. After all, you reason, how bad can one chocolate bar or one serving of fries be?

One serving of fries or one chocolate bar is no big deal. However, Wellpreneur Women know that it's not about the chocolate bar, and it's not even about being hungry. It's about creating practices that support you and your health and well-being in a sustainable manner.

Don't leave healthy nutritional choices up to chance. Decrease the opportunities for making unhealthy choices by planning your snacks for the week. Keep reading for your smart snack stack of seven yummy high-fiber, low-carb snack options.

Raspberries and blackberries are a great source of fiber and low in digestible or net carbs. Having a bowl of one or both of these berries can be a satiating, healthy, and handy snack.

Pop them on top of a cup of Greek yogurt for an extra kick of protein and an even more satiating snack. Opt for the plain yogurt or be sure to check the label for the sugar content.

Dark chocolate isn't only delicious, it can also be a healthy alternative to regular chocolate.

Look for a high quality dark chocolate that is at least 70% cocoa. According to Healthline, depending on the brand, 1 ounce (28 grams) of 70-85% dark chocolate can contain about 10 grams of net carbs. A 100-gram bar can contain about 11 grams of fiber.

My go-to is the Ghirardelli Intense Dark Chocolate square. I have one square as a snack, which is 1/3 the 32-gram serving size.

Edamame is one of my two go-to salty snacks. I love potato chips and often crave a savory or salty snack, so having these handy has saved me from many calories!

Edamame is packed with protein and fiber, and is lower in carbs than most other legumes. Plus, the pods make this a fun, yet convenient snack. The steam-in-bag option also makes it super quick and easy to pop in the microwave and be ready in a few minutes, whether you are working from home or the office.

Hummus is a delicious dip, sandwich topper, or spread. You can buy individual hummus containers so you can easily grab a portion to go. Or, you can quickly make your own hummus to taste for a creamy topping to healthy, high-fiber crackers.

One cup of cooked chickpeas delivers 14.5 grams of protein and 12.5 grams of fiber. At 45 grams of carbs per cub, chickpeas are moderately high in carbs. Since chickpeas are high in fiber but not low-carb, be sure to keep your portion size small or be adventurous and try edamame hummus!

  • Roasted chickpeas

Roasted chickpea recipes are all over Instagram and TikTok. I've yet to make my own but there are some tasty ready-made options you can try in a wide variety of flavors. The crunchy and savory snacks are a good chip alternative when you are craving a salty snack!

Their high fiber and protein levels make them a more satiating snack option so less is more!

  • Almonds

Almonds deliver 6 grams of protein and 3.5 grams of fiber per ounce. Plus, they are low in carbs with only 3 grams of net carbs per one ounce serving. It can be easy to overdo it on the portion size, which is why I find the 100-calorie snack-sized packs to be handy. The little bags are great to toss in your handbag, gym bag, or desk drawer for quick and easy access at snack time!

  • Pistachios

Pistachios are also a great and tasty low-carb, high-fiber snack option. Like almonds, watching your portion size is key so the convenient snack-sized packs are a great choice here as well!

Stock up on these yummy snack options to have them at arm's reach. You'll enjoy delicious healthy snacks and feel fuller, longer!
