How do members of the AdvantEdge Workspaces stay focused and energized throughout the busy workday? With snacks! Save time, money, and calories by bringing snacks and lunches from home to power your brain throughout the day. A little tummy rumbling doesn't need to derail you from being productive and positive! Here are a few healthy items to satisfy your hunger and help you get back to business when mid-day hunger strikes!
Mix it Up
Making your own trail mix is cost-effective and fast! This is also a terrific snacking option because you can customize it to satisfy any dietary restrictions. Choose your favorite nuts, dried fruits, candies, and crackers for a unique combo that keeps you going and glowin!. 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 apple or orange slices 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 also add some healthy protein and fiber for a balanced snack!
Spread it Out
You don't have to wait until happy hour to enjoy your favorite spreads and dips! 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 five 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.
