Even if you're not on a diet, it can be difficult to eat healthy at work. When you're sitting at a desk all day, it can be hard not to indulge yourself with chewy cookies or salty potato chips. And, as much as we wish these treats were good for us, they really aren't the best things to be munching on throughout the day (especially if you have a high-stress job). According to Web MD, snacking because of stress or boredom is dangerous because it's easy to eat "extra calories" that our bodies don't need. As a result, we end up packing on the pounds. Here are five delicious (and healthy!) snack foods to bring to work this week:


1. Peanut Butter-Stuffed Apple

This delicious creation is a great snack for work. The simple carbohydrates from the apple's sugars provide energy and the protein from the peanut butter will help to fill you up. So pass on the cookies; this yummy snack will fill you up quickly so you can focus on getting your work done. Check out this recipe from Whole Living Magazine.

2. Pita Chips And Hummus

Skip the potato chips and crunch on this healthy alternative. The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats found in hummus can help give your brain a healthy boost, and the naturally low-fat pita chips can help you keep your diet under control. Who said eating healthy isn't delicious?

3. String Cheese

Need to calm those caffeine-induced jitters? Nibble on portioned cheese snacks such as string cheese or cheese sticks. The protein will help to neutralize your body, or have a calming effect. You can even slice up some block cheese and pack some high-fiber crackers like Triscuits for a yummy mid-day pick-me-up.

4. Strawberry And Cream Cheese Sandwich

Have a sweet tooth? Don't reach for the candy bowl, try a scrumptious strawberry and cream cheese sandwich! This treat is perfect for hot days at the office, plus, strawberries help your vision - so if you're staring at a computer screen all day, eat more of these juicy fruits!

5. Snap Peas

Even if you don't like veggies, snap peas are a refreshing snack (especially if you can get them fresh!). They are not only sweet and crunchy, but healthy, too! Because they are full of iron, they are a great thing to snack on when you're feeling fatigued at work. Yum! Photo Credit: Bigstock

Not surprisingly, time shortage is one of the biggest reasons for students dropping out before completing their degree. So how do you make sure that you stay the course?
