Healthy Snacks for Work

This post is sponsored by Pearls® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

To stay competitive in Silicon Valley, local companies like Google, Facebook, and Linkedin offer a lot of perks and benefits to make sure their employees are happy in the workplace. One of the most notable perks is to provide food and snacks to employees. It’s great to not have to think about what you’re going to eat during the day. It also eliminates the need to leave the office to find food.

But there is a downside to unlimited snacks in the office. It can be so tempting to eat junk food like candy and chips when you’re grabbing a snack between meetings.

Instead, bringing healthy snacks from home can help you stay on track and keep those junk food cravings at bay. Below you can find my favorite healthy snacks for work.

Craving salty snacks?

If you tend to pick up salty snacks, try Pearls Olives to Go!®. With flavors like Italian Herb, Taco, and Siracha, these snacking olives are sure to delight your taste buds!

These olives can be found at all major retailers. I found these at my neighborhood Target in the ‘condiment’ isle.

  • Air popped popcorn
  • Hummus and carrots
  • Kale chips
  • Edamame
  • Pickles
  • Roasted pumpkin seeds
  • Mixed nuts

Craving something sweet?

  • Greek yogurt with berries
  • Homemade energy balls
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Chocolate covered banana
  • Figs and honey
  • Chocolate chips inside raspberries

Ready to start snacking? I would love to hear what snacks you love to bring to the office. Share your favorites below!

    These are all great ideas! Bananas are my go-to nowadays for a snack on the go, since they’re so cheap and easy to carry! I also really like roasted chickpeas when I’m craving something more salty/savory… there are so many ways to flavor them!

    I love snacks. I like to have a sweet and salty mixture when I normally eat snacks, I normally like to eat crackers and string cheese.

  6. The olives sound great! I’m a fan of Think Thin bars, and while I was initially seduced by the high protein and zero grams of sugar, after seeing all the processed ingredients, I realize they’re probably not the healthiest choice. Better than a Snickers bar, but not much. Your post has made me realize there are many healthier things I could be eating that are also convenient and portable.
