Save time, money, and calories by bringing snacks and lunches from home to power your brain throughout the day. Below are some combos that help us stay on our toes when mid-day hunger strikes! Grab some snack containers, here are just a few ideas you can use to satisfy your hunger and get back to your growing business.
Mix it Up
Making your own trail mix is cost effective and fast not to mention you can customize it to satisfy dietary restrictions. Choose your favorite nuts, dried fruits, candies, and crackers for a unique combo that keeps you going. Make several servings ahead of time for a simple, healthy snack you can grab on the go.
The 3 PM Cheese Plate
Want your snacks to look as professional as your workspace? Assemble your own cheese plate by pairing your favorite fruits such as apples, citrus, or grapes with cheese for a sophisticated plate that’ll put a little pep in your step. Slice fruits and pair them with your favorite Gouda, cheddar, brie, or Havarti. Adding a quarter cup of almonds, macadamias, or cashews can add some healthy protein and fiber to a balanced snack.
Spread it Out
Crackers and Spread: Grab a knife and spread some peanut or almond butter on any whole grain cracker. Switch it up and turn it into dessert by using jelly or a chocolate spread like Nutella for a sweet and crunchy treat.
Get your Veggies
Get those 5 servings a day with carrots, celery sticks, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, and broccoli along with a few tablespoons of ranch or blue cheese dip. Not enough? Pita bread and hummus or tortilla chips and salsa pack even more crunch and fiber.
