These two snacks are a little sweet, a little salty, and filling to boot. Edamame is a fiber and protein-filled snack that’s fun to nosh on. Finish with a vitamin C-rich orange, which helps you to absorb the type of iron found in vegetables. Always tempted to raid the office kitchen? Try a cup of cottage cheese with pineapple which is so filling you’ll make it through your commute and home to dinner.
