You are at work and suddenly your body sends signals that it needs stimulation and energy. You may not be able to enjoy a hearty meal, but how about a tasty and healthy snack?

Small snacks work like a booster for our body. If we want to follow a balanced diet in our daily life, then we can include small and nutritious meals. A small meal can satisfy the feeling of satiety, even if it is low in calories.

A frequent mistake we make is that due to lack of time we resort to junk solutions.

And you can remember that a balanced diet consists of foods rich in protein, carbohydrates and good fats, such as the ones we recommend below.

  • Pancakes with oats

It’s a delicious and filling solution for those cravings at work. For the dough you will only need ground oats, egg and a little water. You stir the mixture and add a little salt. For the salty version, prefer a slice of turkey, low-fat cheese and a bit of katiki. For days when you’re craving a sweet option, spread with a tablespoon of whole wheat tahini and add half a chopped banana.

  • Avocado Toast

Toast is an easy everyday choice. Its downside is that it ends up being a “boring solution” for our mid-morning meals. You can upgrade it by making the ever popular avocado toast.

Avocado elevates toast and creates a base for many delicious snacks. To implement the proposal, you will first need 1 slice of whole wheat, 1 ripe avocado, 1 egg, some chives, salt, red and black pepper. While you boil or fry the egg, spread the avocado on the slice and add a little salt. As soon as the egg is ready, you place it on top, adding some chives as a garnish. Finally, salt, red and a little black pepper.

  • Dates

From the palm plant, the basil date is one of the most delicious and nutritious dried fruits. It has a high content of nutrients and stands out for its sweet taste. It is an ideal choice for those moments when we want to eat something sweet. Its flavor takes off in combination with nuts and dark chocolate. Pick three juicy royal dates and remove their pits. Inside he placed some walnut and then dipped them in melted dark chocolate. Leave them in a parchment paper in the fridge and the next day at work you will thank us!

  • Yogurt with berries and honey

It’s refreshing, tasty and low in calories. This snack will fully cover your protein needs. Berries, in addition to their antioxidant effect, have a very nice taste and few calories. Prefer natural berries instead of dried ones. Don’t forget to add a spoonful of honey at the end. Tasty, quick, healthy and effortless… It will probably become your favorite choice.

  • Homemade pastel

Many times our work creates fatigue. If the first thing that comes to your mind at that moment is that you want something sweet, then you will love this recipe. You can choose any nut you want, such as pistachios, sunflower seed crumbs or almonds. After breaking them into a few small and large pieces, it’s time to create your pastel.

In a pan you add some coconut sugar and some honey. As soon as they melt, add some baking soda and then the nut of your choice. Be careful when mixing because we “burnt”.

As soon as it is homogenized, you spread it on a parchment paper. After it cools down, break it into small pieces. It’s a delicious snack that you can also share with your colleagues!
