When evening comes, it’s easy to fall into unhealthy snacking routines. Before, during, and right after lunch, it’s hard to resist the usual cast of villainous characters: chocolate bars, doughnuts, fried chicken sandwiches, and heavy caesar salads.
These choices are not only unhealthy, but will also slow you down – not something you want when you’re looking for a mid-day fill. Whether you’re on a diet or just interested in eating healthy, we recommend sticking to snacks that give you a boost of energy and fill you up at the same time.
Here are 5 healthy midday snacks. Swallow..
1/2 Cantaloupe – Not too sweet, very filling and very healthy. Take Cantaloupe on Monday and finish on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Carrots with Hummus – A personal favourite. This light yet dense snack is guaranteed to fill you up.
Tomato Slices with Feta and Olive Oil – Feeling fancy? Impress everyone you work with by indulging in a sophisticated snack that’s incredibly delicious and incredibly healthy.
Bananas – you can’t go wrong with bananas. They help fight headaches and hunger.
Air-popped popcorn – This is not your cinema popcorn. Pick up some butter-free clean kernels at your local supermarket and make popcorn at home the night before. You can even make additions for friends and coworkers. A great snack when eaten without the fake butter that these babies are so often slathered in at the movies.
