Working from home can have its pros and cons though: while for many it fulfils their dream of not having to get up quite so early or contend with the rush hour traffic, unfortunately it often also means that the fridge is far too close to their desk. For lots of people, self-discipline and healthy eating are no longer quite so easy as they face the daily grind of working at home, and it’s all too easy to reach for that bag of crisps. But don’t worry - we’ve gathered together a few alternative healthy and vegan snacks that are easy to make and will give you the energy boost you need.
