Eat natural whole foods. Single ingredient is the best, e.g. a carrot, an apple, an avocado.
Ideally you shouldn't eat anything that comes in a packaging with a nutrition label.
If it comes with a packaging, there should be no more than six ingredients.
Choose foods that are low in refined carbs and sugars, no preservatives, no artificial flavourings or colorings.
You should understand or recognise all the ingredients listed on the nutrition label.
Think how to maximise nutrient density, rather than how to minimise calories.
Avocados are a superfood. They are delicious, nutritious, rich in fibre, potassium, monounsaturated fatty acids and very satiating.
Again, get organic berries because it is one of the Dirty Dozen produce.
Fresh berries literally tick all the boxes in terms of single ingredient, no nutrition label, low in sugar and high nutrient density.
Buy organic especially if you are going to eat them raw. Many options:
broccoli, carrots, cucumber, bell peppers, lightly cooked sugar snaps/ french beans/ edamame
Antipasto - Olives, Artichokes, Peppers
Just trying to think out of the box a little bit. Sounds a bit messy / greasy to eat as you work at a desk. It's just an option filled with healthy fats rather than refined carbs and sugars.
Fermented pickles, kimchi, kefir and miso contain prebiotics that support a healthy gut microbiome. They are also low in calories and rich in electrolytes.
Go for organic, pasture-raised full fat yoghurt, which holds plenty of fat-soluble vitamins and nutrients. Low fat or fat-free yoghurt is less nutritious with more sugar. Try coconut yoghurt as a non-dairy option.
Hard Boiled Egg
Again, go for organic, free range and ideally pasture-raised eggs. The higher the quality, the more nutritious, more vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids to support your health.
Seriously, who says you cannot have fish as a snack. Fish is a great source of protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Try a slice of smoked salmon, canned fish, even a poke bowl.
Be creative, mix and match your healthy snacks
