Working all day in the office can be a difficult task, especially when it comes to snacking and you don’t have time for it. And usually we end up with unhealthy stuff for a quick hunger strike. But that can be avoided with some healthy options, including a few salads, which can be made quickly.
These salads are also rich in fiber that keeps the stomach full for longer. This avoids extra calories and you get rid of junk food. Here are a few salads you can try as a snack at the office.
A bean-peanut salad is the best choice if you want to eat healthy while working. Depending on the taste, a few pieces of cherries, grapes, tomatoes and cucumber can be used in this salad. It can be kept fresh by adding some basil leaves.
Since the broccoli in this recipe is raw, you should actually dress it at least an hour before serving to give the vegetables time to absorb the flavor. Even if it’s a great side dish alone, including other protein sources (like grilled chicken or hard-boiled eggs) will transform it into a complete dinner.
Salad of green beans
If you have this dish as a main course, you should serve it with a different protein source, as it consists mainly of vegetables and contains only a small amount of goat cheese, walnuts and almonds. Fortunately, you can eat these mild flavors with just about anything, even tofu and salmon.
Grilled lamb’s lettuce
If you can’t find fresh corn for this salad, replace thawed, frozen corn with canned corn for results that taste just as fresh. For fullness, eat it with a high-protein main dish like grilled chicken.
Salad with loaded beans
This salad is clearly nutritious despite the absence of leafy greens. Kidney or pinto beans, black beans, peppers, onions, and corn are the two types of beans included. While a bowl would make a delicious supper, leftovers can also be used as a dip for chips or as a filling for burritos.
