The Post-Lunch Crunch: Healthy Snacks for Working from Home
Working from home is a popular choice, and with tools from Davinci Virtual Office Solutions, it’s easy to create a professional office address along with all the perks of an office like a live receptionist and mail forwarding while never having to leave your house.
However, when it comes to working from home, it’s far too easy to snack all day and put on the pounds. The snack drawer looms in the kitchen like a tempting booby trap. Full of sugars and fats, the old snack drawer is a hotbed of yummy treats with detrimental health blows. Luckily it’s easy to improve the diet while enjoying fulfilling munchies.
Why grab yet another cup of coffee when you can make yourself a healthy smoothie instead? Just add some strawberries, bananas, mangos, or other fruits into a blender, splash in some milk or yogurt, add some ice cubes, blend, and you have a perfect mid-morning snack between work assignments.
For snacks with a bit of a chew, look into heating up some edamame. Edamame are soy beans which cook in about 5 minutes in boiling water. Just drizzle on a little extra olive oil, roasted garlic, or lemon for taste, and done!
Peanut Butter and Apples
This old-school playground treat is just as yummy in your home office. Slice up some apples and dip into peanut butter for a healthy snack full of crisp crunch and tons of protein. You’ll be nice and full and ready for a day of conference calls.
Homemade Trail Mix
Instead of picking up stale trail mix from the store, make your own! Just add your favorite nuts, some dried fruit, and just the slightest pinch of dark chocolate to make a fun snack with some variety.
It’s tempting to fall into the routine of greasy chips and bags of candy when you work from home, but with a few simple recipes, it’s easy to eat well and work hard. And while you stay cozy inside your abode, let tools from Davinci Virtual Office Solutions keep up the professional image for clients and business partners on the outside. With a healthy business image and a healthy body and mind, you can’t lose!
