Step away from the cupcakes, crisps and chocolate: we'll keep you going until dinner with these smart food swaps.
Scoop 115g of cottage cheese and top it with an equal quantity of fruit of your choice – we love mango or pineapple as they zing nicely with the cheese, but berries or citrus work well too.
Lookit, you don't even need a plate. Slice two pieces of celery into two and then fill the centres with a tablespoon of nut butter – cashew, almond or peanut; it's your call.
There's about 19g of protein per 100g of pumpkin seeds, plus they're really tasty. Definitely one to keep in your desk drawer when the 3pm slump hits.
Two rice cakes, a tablespoon of nut butter on each and half a sliced banana spread across the pair; you'll almost fool yourself into thinking this is Banoffee. Almost. But you won't be starving any more so you won't care.
It's an oldie and such a reliable but hunmus and crudites never lets you down. Two tablespoons of hummus and as many carrot, cucumber and peppers sticks as you can get into you, and Bob's your uncle.
Know you're going to be ravenous come 3pm? Then come armed and ready with a protein-packed hard boiled egg. Such a cheap, easy source of protein and so filling too. Result.
Make like Victoria Beckham and choose peeled, cooked prawns. They're a good protein-packed afternoon snack choice. Put eight on a plate with a lighter sauce like sweet chili if you need it– but definitely avoid mayo-laden Marie Rose.
Yup, the humble banana. The hangry person's best pal. Get it into you.
Portion out a half inch thick slice of hard cheese like cheddar or swiss, which should give you about six cubes. Alternate these on sticks with grapes and tomatoes, and have a party at your desk. Woot!
Combine one tablespoon of nuts with one of fruit (we love cranberries and unsalted peanuts), and snack happy.
