With a variety of work schedules, it can sometimes be a long stretch between lunch and dinner.  However, the right choice of snack will give you the energy you need to make it through that seemingly endless length of time. Choose a snack that contains fibre and protein to help slow the release of sugar into your blood and keep hunger from setting in. I would recommend storing some food in the fridge or cupboard at work so you are prepared when you feel like it’s snack time. The vending machine, corner store, or coffee shop often won’t offer the healthiest choices, and let’s face it, when you are hungry, convenience almost always wins over health.

Here are a few of my favourite snacks that keep me from ripping the fridge door off when I get home from work:

         1. Whole grain crackers with a slice of cheese

         2. Sliced apple with peanut or almond butter

         3. Yogurt with fruit or granola

         4. Veggie sticks with hummus

         5. Almonds with dried cranberries or raisins
