20 Healthy Snack Ideas When Working From Home

healthy snacks for work from home

Stress and eating habits tend to have a bad relationship. Usually, when we’re stressed, we eat everything that crosses our path, or we don’t eat at all. Maybe your boss gave you a tight deadline, and the first thing you did was eat an entire bucket of ice cream. Or perhaps you’re just stressed about the whole pandemic situation, and eating healthy is not on your to-do list. But what if we told you there’s a way to eat healthier and satisfy your cravings while working from home? Snacks! And we’re not talking about eating apples with peanut butter, but creative and healthy snacks to make while working from home. 

Why Do We Need to Eat Healthy Snacks When Working from Home?

If you eat countless Oreos when you’re stressed or go on a hunger strike, you’re not the only one. A study shows that 40% of people tend to overeat when stressed, while about 40% eat less.  

But why does this happen? When we’re stressed, our brain sends cues to our bodies. It’s part of our fight-or-flight response that helps us deal with perceived threats – in this case, stress. Our body sends out cortisol, known as the stress hormone, that makes us crave sugary, salty, and fatty foods. Our brain thinks it needs fuel (junk food) to fight whatever threat is causing the stress. However, not everyone reacts the same way. Some people can eat their entire pantry, and others simply lose their appetite.

While we might think this isn’t a big deal, bad eating habits can significantly impact our bodies in the long term. And while snacks aren’t meals, if we eat for a prolonged time unhealthy snacks, our body can start suffering the consequences. These are some of the side effect junk foods have:

  • Headaches and migraine
  • Depression
  • Acne outbreaks
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Increased blood sugar and insulin resistance
  • Bloating

Hacks to Eat Healthier While Working from Home (Without Even Realizing It) 

We’ve all used the ‘’I’ll start on Monday’’ card, and we know that turned out. We never start on Monday. Instead of trying to change your eating habits drastically, you can take it slowly. Here are some hacks that can help you: 

1. Eat Things You Actually Enjoy

Your ‘how to eat healthier’ google search probably bombarded you with thousands of diets like Keto or Paleo that might seem overwhelming at first. Or with the story of a woman who lost 30 pounds drinking a magic pill or eating boiled broccoli. But the reality is that making your way through healthier eating habits is all about the right balance. If you hate kale smoothies, why drink them? Make a list of the things you do enjoy eating and base your diet on those. You can even make a list of the junk food you like the most and search for healthier versions. Don’t waste time and energy trying to eat healthy things you hate; it will make you want to eat junk food even more. 

2. Meal Prep

Meal prep is an art that helps you save time, money, energy while eating healthy food, all at once. For those not familiar with the concept, meal prepping consists of leaving your meals ready in advance. Some people love doing this on Sundays, where they plan and cook the meals they will eat until Wednesday (it’s recommended to cook food for up to three days; otherwise, ingredients might ruin). Others make their meals for the next day during dinner. That way, you won’t be tempted to order deliveries or takeaway. 

3. Eat When You’re Hungry

It sounds stupid but eating when bored or stress is not the same as eating when hungry. When we have a million urgent tasks on our to-do list, and we are overwhelmed, it’s easy to feel that potato chips or chocolate cake will make us feel better. However, loading your body with sugary foods will make you even feel more tired and drained. Instead of eating just because you want to have a little break to avoid your tasks, learn to listen to your body and to differentiate when you’re hungry from when you’re not. 

These are some tips outlined by Healthline to avoid eating because of stress or boredom:

  • Understand your eating triggers
  • Practice mindful eating 
  • Map out your day
  • Have a plan for when you get bored 
  • Wait 30 minutes

4. Get Inspired 

Movies, or Keeping Up with the Kardashians, sometimes make us believe that eating healthy is all about salads and bottles of water. But eating healthy is also about being creative. There are thousands of veggies, fruits, nuts, and different types of food that nurture our bodies that go beyond the traditional ideas.

A key to starting eating healthy snacks while working from home is getting creative and starting trying new flavors. Beyond the typical snacks we see at every fitfluencers blog; there are many other snacks easy to create that will make you ditch the junk food addiction in no time.

To get you inspired, we gathered 20 recipes from different blogs that are perfect for everybody. Whether you are vegan, have a sweet tooth, love salty foods, or just want something different, these snacks will help you create a healthier lifestyle while working from home.

3. Chop your chocolate and place in a small bowl. Microwave on 15 second increments, stirring well in between, until chocolate is melted and smooth.

3. Apple Chips

Source: The Creative Bite

These apple chips are the perfect example that eating healthy is possible with what you already have in your kitchen. Why? Because all you need is an apple and a little bit of cinnamon or apple pie spice. That’s it! And in case you’re wondering, no, you don’t need a fancy deshidrator for this one, they are 100% oven baked. 

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 baking apples
  • 2 Tbsp. apple pie spice

Method: 

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.

2. Slice apples as thin as possible.

3. Arrange the slices on a parchment lined sheet pan. Try doing this quickly or the apples will brown.

4. Sprinkle the apple slices with apple pie spice. 

5. Top the seasoned apple slices with a cooling rack. Line the cooling rack with more apple slices and season them with apple pie spice.

6. Bake at 200°F  for 2-3 hours. After 2 hours, check an apple chip by removing it from the oven and letting it cool for 5 minutes. If it is crispy after cooling, then they are done. If not, continue baking in 20 minute increments until they are done. The baking time will vary based on how thin you slice the apples.

7. Let the apple chips cool completely before storing in airtight containers.

4.  Fruit Roll-Ups

With just one bite, you’ll transport yourself to your childhood. What if we told you there’s a way to make roll-ups at home? And it’s way easier than you think. The best part is that you’re tricking your mind thinking you’re eating candy when in reality, you’re eating a healthier version of a traditional roll-up. 

Ingredients (2-3 servings):

  • 8 oz of strawberries
  • 1 tbsp of squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp of sugar (optional)

Method: 

1. Place the trimmed strawberries in a blender or food processor and puree them for a minute or so until smooth. Make sure there are no chunks in the mixture. 

2. Transfer the strawberry puree to a saucepan and add the lemon juice and sugar. Turn the heat to medium high, and cook the mixture for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture is thick and jammy. The goal here is to cook out much of the moisture.

3. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees F, or as low as your oven will go, making sure it’s less than 200 degrees at the highest.

4. Spread the strawberry jam into a rectangle shape onto a baking pan lined with a silpat or parchment paper. You may use an offset spatula or a regular spatula to help spread the mixture as evenly as possible, until the rectangle is about 1/8 inch thick. Keep in mind the fruit leather will lose some of its thickness in the oven as it dehydrates, so make sure that none of the jam is so thin that you can see through it as you spread.

5. Cook in the oven for 3-4 hours, until the fruit mixture no longer feels sticky, just a bit tacky. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. Transfer to a cutting board lined with wax paper, and use a pizza cutter to cut long strips. Roll them up into the fruit roll ups, and enjoy!

5. Bell Pepper with Cream Cheese
