This, Not That: HEALTHY Office Snacks to Order for the Breakroom

This, Not That: HEALTHY Office Snacks to Order for the Breakroom

Fresh, whole foods versus processed food.

CHOOSE THIS:

Low-fat dairy – Cheese and Yogurt: Dairy, when low-fat, low-sugar, and eaten in moderation, is a satisfying and healthy snack. High in protein and calcium, products like Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Original or Frigo Light String Cheese have 8g -11g of protein per 100 calories. Yoplait Light and Yoplait Smoothie Lights are low-cal choices for yogurt. They have about 6grams of protein for every 100 calories, Zero fat, 20% of your daily Calcium and Vitamin D needs, and a little potassium to boot. Granted, these need to be eaten in moderation as they also have 14 grams of sugar per 100 calories.


NOT THAT:

Cheetos, Cheez-Its, Granola-like Yogurt Bars: These, like the other potato chips and granola bars mentioned, are simply bad for your body and bad for your figure. Saturated fat, sodium and no nutritional value make cheesy chips some of the worst snacks for you. Meanwhile “Yogurt” granola bars, like Nature Valley’s Chewy Granola Bars with Naturally Flavored Yogurt Coating are just sugary cereal covered in more sugar. In fact, three out of the first four ingredients are sugar products (Rolled Oats, High Maltose Corn Syrup, Sugar, High Fructose Corn Syrup.)

Other losers: Nutri-Grain Yogurt Bars, Whole-milk yogurt, Smartfood’s White Cheddar Popcorn
