Whole wheat cakes with peanut butter
Healthy cakes made from a mixture of cereals (rice, rye or other that you like) with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter are a perfect snack.

Almonds and other nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts …) are a natural source of vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and rich in the protein and dietary fiber.
If you want to eat something sweet and healthy, choose an energy bar made with natural ingredients such as dates, almonds, walnuts or cranberries. These bars are rich in dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals.
Vegetables with sauce
Cut carrots, celery, tomatoes, cucumber (select vegetables that you like) and bring to work. Vegetables are rich in fiber and water. If you do not like to eat only raw vegetables, add 3 tablespoons of humus (70 calories), salsa (10 calories) or other salad dressing that is low in calories, fat and sodium (salt).
A soup full of vegetables and noodles is a good remedy for dehydration. Noodles will keep you up for more 4-5 hours and vegetables will bring the energy you need.
