Maintaining a healthy diet is one of the best things we can do for our immune systems. And while working from home can tempt us to snack on the nearest carbs and sugar, we’d be better served to maintain a balanced diet. Easier said than done, though — no?
That’s why we’ve rounded up five healthy snack ideas that will take zero prepwork or thought to throw together. Don’t think about it — just grab for that protein-filled snack and keep that immune system doing its thing.

If you have a sweet tooth, there are options out there that will be just as satisfying as a cookie but much more nutritious. Take these bars from Zone Perfect, for example, which deliver a balanced blend of macros to help you get through your day. Each delicious bar (choose from flavors like Birthday Cake, Fruity Cereal, and White Chocolate Peanut Butter) consists of 40% carbs for energy, 30% fat for nutrition and 30% protein for strength. You’ll not only enjoy a tasty protein bar but also stay full longer and get a burst of energy without a sugar crash.
EPIC Protein Bars
One of the more flavor-intense snacks on this list, the EPIC Protein Bar is the perfect combination of fuel and savory taste. Each bar is protein rich made from the highest-quality meats, and naturally low in fat and rich with minerals and vitamins. Whether you get the Chicken Sriracha, Turkey Almond & Cranberry or Uncured Bacon, you won’t regret passing on the chips and opting for one of these EPIC Protein Bars.
These 100% organic fruit bars are perfect for the entire family. With the ingredients consisting only of fruits, every bar is packed with natural fiber.
