Veggie chips are some of the tastiest (and healthiest) office snacks you can crunch!
We all know it’s not easy to get a full serving of vegetables into your diet every single day.
Growing up we were told how important it was to eat our veggies, even if it was only to get to our desserts a little faster. Back then a few pieces of broccoli seemed hard enough.
But apparently adults are supposed to be getting 2-3 cups of vegetables every day, 7 days a week.
Luckily, as I got older, my love for this block of the food pyramid grew as my appetite for sugary treats shrunk. Now, I have no trouble pounding back potato after tomato.
When I eat at restaurants little children look on with horror as I order a veggie appetizer INSTEAD of dessert. (Really, I do!)
Despite my insatiable appetite for vegetables, I still find it difficult to eat my fair share. If that sounds familiar, then sit down because I have some great news.
You can get ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL your required vegetables in everyday thanks to these tasty, healthy office snacks.
Veggie chips are simply vegetables sliced, diced, and chopped into a snackable size, and then typically baked or fried so that you can pretend they’re not really healthy (Spoiler Alert: They are).

Most people know about potato, taro root, and even kale chips, but there are so many more to choose from.
Can you guess which veggie chip is #1?
21. Sweet Potato
Ahhh yeesss! Starting with one of my all time favs, sweet potatoes are excellent to snack on at the office, on your commute, at your cousin’s birthday, really anywhere.
Full of fibre, vitamins B and C as well as super useful antioxidants, sweet potatoes are one of the best office snacks you can make.
They do have one drawback - everyone wants to eat yours!
Most people think of plantains as the B-list banana, which funnily enough is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
Plantain chips are one of the best ways to consume Vitamin C and are also great for heart health.
Since they’re firmer and aren’t as sweet as bananas, they are great for frying up into chips with some zesty spices.
These snacks are hard to beet...I mean...triumph over.
The deep purple of a beet chip makes snacking fun, and with raw, earthy tones baked beet chips have a more neutral flavour.
With some rosemary they turn into the perfect office snack, though I usually eat them au naturale 😬
18. Green Bean
That’s right. While not your usual “chip” shape, green beans are wonderful veggie snack to have lying around the workplace.
A lot of the vitamins are kept in the skins, so go ahead and eat the whole thing!
Honestly, I would pick these magic green bean chips over the family cow any day of the week.
If you’re looking for underrated healthy office snack of the year, it's the watermelon radish.
These red, petite plants lower blood pressure, detox your liver AND taste amazing!
Did I mention they look dapper-as-fresh on any garden salad?
The superfood of the last decade, kale made headlines for absolutely no reason whatsoever around 2013 and has really been kale-ing it ever since.
You’ll understand why if you pop a couple dozen leaves into the oven and eat what comes out.
Kale is really tasty baked and while very thin it still makes our list of awesome veggie chips.
Shell I tell you why this is gonna be your new favourite office snack?
All yokes aside, eggplant is a fantastic addition to a workplace snacking diet because of all the different ways it can be prepared.
Sliced into chips or cut into fries, with a little oil and some panko this curvy cuisine turns into veggie chips to fry for.
Ah yes, the mighty potato. Can you believe we made it this far without mentioning it?
As the most common type of chip on the block, the potato gets quite a bit of love already. But while many health-conscious offices avoid this snack, if it's baked it can actually be really nourishing.
As we’ve mentioned before, oven-baked potato chips introduce more vitamin C into the body while reducing trans fats. So skip the fryer and unlock the full potential of your potato!
Probably one of the last things you would guess on this list, but seaweed offers a unique flavour profile not often experienced in North America.
Toasted in the oven and then brushed with sesame oil and fish sauce, this snack is a lip-smacker and healthy to boot!
12. Brussels Sprouts
Energy levels keep dropping before those afternoon meetings? Well no more!
Brussels sprouts leaves are chocked full of energy for you to power through your day, while also keeping your blood sugar levels in check.
11. Taro Root
Once an unknown edible, now a staple for healthy diets. Taro root was popularized thanks to TERRA chips and their attractive offering of root vegetables.

With iron, zinc, potassium and a whole host of other minerals, taro root is a welcome member of any healthy office snacks.
I know what you’re thinking. “But Jonathan, tomatoes aren’t vegetables?!”
To which I say, “If pizza can be a vegetable, tomatoes get a seat at the table.”
Besides, thinly sliced and oven roasted tomato chips are the BOMB, especially when eaten with basil and parmesan. 😋
Another not-quite-a-chip-but-we’ll-count-it-anyways exception is broccoli.
Looking a lot like a tree, this powerful produce item can also make YOU big and strong.
And it promotes healthy bone structure thanks to its high levels of calcium. Who knew?
We did. (You’re welcome.)
This root has soooo many B vitamins packed into it that one of them starts with the letter “f”.
(It’s folate, and it’s super good if you need to turnip red blood cell production.)
Because turnips stabilize blood sugars, they are a great snack for diabetics in the office.
7. Swiss Chard
This rainbow-colored delight is very similar to kale chips, but is actually closely related to the beet family.
Swiss chard is awesome for a healthy office birthday snack because of its vibrant colors, you can munch happily knowing that you’re getting your recommended dose of dietary fibre.
As far as snacks in the office go, swiss chard will never leaf you wanting more!
6. Butternut Squash
Is your workplace susceptible to cold and flu? The truth is, even with proper health and safety practices, most offices are.
Say “so long” to chronic sickness with butternut squash chips!
A veritable soup classic, these veggie chips can be gobbled up with cayenne pepper so that your team can stay healthy while eating tasty office snacks!
Real talk: I used to hate parsnips.
When I was younger I must have had some weird taste buds because at some point these root vegetables went from Most Hated to Most Wanted.
If you also have some prejudice against the parsnip plant, please pay attention.
Parsnip chips are one of the best office snacks in the world.
...I said what I said.
Kinda bitter when raw, but when baked these veggies caramelize into bite-sized snacks that you’ll be popping into your mouth, non-stop.
Okay these might need some explaining.
Like all spinach dishes, these baked snacks are best made when fresh and dry.
Definitely use your broiler to achieve the right level of crispiness, and dash them with some dill and coriander if you’re brave…
What’s up, doc? Did you think we’d forget these nuggets of nutrition?
Carrots are good office snacks to share and offer plenty of variety for those looking to add some color to their diet.
Well there wasn’t mushroom on our list...but there is now!
Known for their high source of fibre, mushrooms also provide a lot of vitamin D, which is especially helpful for offices that don’t get much sun.
Toasted or fried up with butter and you’ll have a fungi that can’t be beat! 🤤
Too much junk food can mess with your system, and no one wants to take time off work because they aren’t feeling well.
Veggie chips made with zucchini seriously improve digestion and help with weight loss.
Trust your gut, eat the zucc.
Wow. That was a mouthful.
