Indulging in unhealthy snacks once in awhile is fine but for those who need something to munch on while working, constantly eating snacks that won't provide any health benefits isn't going to increase your productivity.

Instead, there will be adverse effects such as putting on unnecessary weight, increase in pimples and decrease in productivity (because of food coma).

If you like to binge eat snacks to destress at work, try having these healthy snacks that are also delicious and easy to make. In fact, they will only take about 10 minutes of your time to make.

Check them out below!

#1 Mixed nuts & dried fruits

Nuts are high in nutrition and loaded with antioxidants. Eating nuts can aid with weight loss and since they are rich in amino acid, it will naturally increase your memory and brain performance which will aid you in your work.

Buy a few packets of different types of nuts such as almonds, cashews and walnuts. If you prefer an extra crunchy texture, bake them in the oven for a few minutes and pack them in a lunch box after cooling down to bring them to work.

Mix in dried fruits such as cranberries for a healthy sweet treat.

#2 Apples & almond butter

Fruits are naturally sweet and are a great snack choice! Apples are linked to lower risk of diabetes and have lots of fibres that will help with gut health and ease constipation (if you suffer from it).

Simply bring an apple a day into office and cut it up in your pantry for a refreshing snack. If you like savoury snacks, dip your apple slices in almond butter for a creamy and satisfying treat. Almond butter is healthier than peanut butter but tastes just as good!

#3 Edamame

You should be familiar with edamame if you have ever been to a Japanese restaurant. These fresh soybeans are often served in Japanese restaurants as an appetiser. These small little beans have many health benefits too! They are a good source of protein and Vitamin K which helps you maintain a healthy metabolism.

It's also easy peasy to prepare them. Just boil a pot of water, add a generous amount of salt into it and pour in the edamame. Cook for five minutes and put them into a lunchbox to bring to work.

Whenever you feel like snacking, pop those beans out from the shell and enjoy!

#4 Baked vegetable chips

"Vegetable chips" don't sound appetising but what about baked vegetable chips? They are great alternatives for unhealthy and salty potato chips!

Cut sweet potatoes, beets and carrots into thin slices and brush them with olive oil. Lightly salt them if you want a bit more flavour. Bake in the oven on low heat for about two hours to avoid burning the chips while making sure they are as crispy as possible.

Two hours sounds like a long time but this snack will only take 10 minutes to prepare, then, leave it in the oven to bake while you go about your day.

Bring them to your office so that whenever you feel like reaching for potato chips, you have these healthy ones instead.

#5 Chia seed greek yogurt

For those who want a cold and refreshing snack, try making this chia seed greek yogurt. Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids that helps to raise the "good" cholesterol to protect against heart attack and stroke. Greek yogurt is also a diet-friendly yogurt.

To prepare, add chia seeds into your greek yogurt and leave it in the fridge overnight. Bring it to work and add in some of the mixed nuts and dried fruits from #1.
