Depending on the freelance career you are enjoying, you may find yourself sitting at a desk all day rather than being active. This is especially true for the freelance writer. Even if you take a daily walk or otherwise work out, you are still sitting around most of the day.

It is important to a freelancer keep healthy snacks handy during his or her working hours. A snack drawer, depending on what is kept in it, may be replenished each morning or once a week. Think carefully about what is kept in yours. Make healthy choices, and try not to snack constantly. Be sure to eat your three main meals each day, and allow yourself a snack twice a day and once in the evening.

Here are some options to get you started:

  • Juice boxes: Keep to 100% fruit juice of the smallest size. Drink one per day.

  • Carrot and celery sticks.

  • Fresh fruit.

  • Granola bars.

  • Small jars of fruit.

  • Fruit or protein bars.

  • Homemade trail mix in snack size containers.

  • Dry (healthy) cereal in snack size containers.

  • Nuts or sunflower seeds.

You may also want to keep these items in the drawer:

  • Napkins

  • Forks

What do you keep on hand for healthy snacking?
