Dried fruits -- think banana chips or small packs of raisins you can stash in your desk at work -- are sweet and tasty, and come in lots of shapes, sizes and flavors. Perfect for a midday pick me up!
“Dried fruit keeps well at room temperature, and has a whole whole of nutritional benefits,” Chamberlin says. “Just don’t go overboard: they are high in natural sugars, and have enough fiber to potentially have a laxative effect.” Hey, at least all those trips to the bathroom will interrupt your eating, right?
OK, this isn’t a food per se, but teas come in a large variety of flavors, which can satisfy just about any taste you’re longing for, Chamberlin says. But maybe not pizza -- we can’t promise miracles. As an added benefit, tea is also almost entirely water and has virtually no calories, so you’ll feel full while staying hydrated, too.
