  1. Planning what you'll eat at work is very important
  2. Binge on peanuts and chana to feel full for longer
  3. You must have 1 seasonal fruit every day

On an average, how much time do you take in deciding what to wear to work? It is important, undoubtedly, to look proper and presentable at your workplace. But equally important is what you eat at work. It is something that you tend to miss on, when you're in a hurry, or are simply not in a mood to cook. Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar stresses on the importance of planning at least 3 meals before you leave home for work.

The trickiest time at work, when we all tend to eat unhealthy is between 4 pm to 6 pm for most of you who are in regular day-shift jobs. This is the time when you usually feel like munching on chips, popcorn, burgers, sandwiches, etc.

So here are 5 healthy snacks as suggested by Rujuta, which you can snack on at work:

1. Homemade chakli or murukku

You can make chakli in ghee, which makes it a healthy snack even though it is deep fried. Chakli is made from wheat flour, rice flour, gram flour and lentil flour. Consuming chakli in moderation is not so bad for health.

Aren't they the most traditional and awesome snacks of all times? Rujuta says that you can binge of a handful of peanuts and chana in these odd hours at work as they are a good source of Vitamin E, folate, niacin, protein and manganese. Also, a combination of these two snacks helps in keeping you full for longer.
