Hungry, and likely to blow up at your co-workers… or steal their leftovers from the fridge. Nobody wants to be that person. So, on to the snacks Mikus recommends!
Pearl's Black Pitted Olives to Go (35 calories a cup) with three or four Triscuits (60 calories)
"I do whole-grain wheat Triscuits. The olives give you healthy, monounsaturated fat and will keep you full. There's also Kalamata olives -- same concept, but one to-go cup is 95 calories. It's a flavor preference."
⅓ cup Three Farmers lightly salted roasted chickpeas (100 calories)
"These have fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates that won't raise your blood sugar as much as a piece of white bread."
Siggi's yogurt tube (50 calories) and half a banana (50 calories)
"Yogurt is a good source of protein, and since it's 2%, it's not really low-fat. Which I like, because the fat will help you stay full."
12 Blue Diamond oven-roasted almonds -- dark chocolate flavor (80 calories) with one cup unsweetened almond milk (30 calories)
"This gives you that chocolate milk feeling without all the saturated fat and calories."
Three Applegate organic roasted turkey slices (50 calories) with ⅕ of a medium avocado (50 calories)
"These turkey slices are lower sodium and less processed. I roll the avocado up inside the slices and get protein from the turkey and omega-3 fatty acids from the avocado. Avocado has no sodium or cholesterol -- so you get some from the turkey, but you aren't adding any more from the avocado."
