When hunger strikes outside of meal time, a well-stocked snack drawer can save the day.
I think of it as “Hangry Hour,” that mid-afternoon slump when lunch has worn off but dinner’s still distant, and you need a little boost to carry you to the end of the day. Why settle for the overpriced, stale snacks in the vending machine? Stock a snack drawer with these top-rated, pick-me-up munchies.
If you’re craving something savory, you can’t go wrong with a bag of chips. These Terra chips ($45 for 12 bags) are a healthy alternative to classic potato. Made from extra-thin slices of root vegetables—think sweet potato, parsnip and yuca—and sprinkled with sea salt, the chips taste as good as potato but have more vitamins. The chips are also gluten-free, vegan, kosher and cholesterol-free.
