Happy Thursday beauties! I’m so excited to announce to you all that I’ve accepted a job as a research assistant for a non-profit here in Kansas City! Many of you have been following my little career updates over the last year and know how hard the job market is for recent grads. Obviously, this is a big victory for me and I feel so blessed and relieved to finally start my career.
Healthy Eating at Work
One of the first things I think about when it comes to being in an office all day is what am I going to eat? Often times, you’re too busy to go out and get something but a bag of chips doesn’t sound excite you. Even worse, you fidget at work all the time and need to keep your hands busy and out of the Hershey’s Kisses bag in your desk drawer. I’m a serial fidgeter and have all of the above problems! Here are my go-to snacks for days spent in the office.
- La Croix and Dried Fruit- The flavored fizzy water is one of my favorite things to drink! Depending on the flavor you get, find a dried fruit to complement it. Cranberries are a great dried fruit to snack on! I also love dried pineapple and banana, however they’re both high in calories. Gotta watch that waistline!
- Cheese and Pretzel Thins- Baby Bell cheese and the big bags of pretzel things you find at Target are a great snack for the mid-day munchies. If you get tired of the cheese, try a low-fat hummus!
- Cucumber Slices and Spices- Cucumbers are basically water and can be made tasty by adding a bit of kick to them! Sprinkle lemon pepper and garlic onto thin slices of cucumber for a low-cal snack.
Get excited for work snacking because it just got a lot more interesting! Leave a comment with your favorite snacks to enjoy at work!

Mary’s Gone Crackers is also a fantastic snack food — and the use of portion control is an excellent way to make sure that “just a few” doesn’t turn into devouring a whole bag! 🙂
I struggle with snacking at work but fruit, roasted chickpeas and nuts have really saved me! And humus with some carrot sticks…yum!
I’ve always wanted to try chickpeas just plain but I’m a little hesitant!
Hmm well they wouldn’t be completely plain, add garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin (or whatever you like!) Trust me, everyone I’ve introduced to to them loves them!
Love La Croix!!! If you havent tried the coconut flavor yet its amazing!!! 🙂

I like to do veggies with dried chick peas, or a home-made fruit salad! I like simple snacks, nothing too crazy 🙂
Love me some fruit salad!!
I can’t confirm that I didn’t eat it twice today…. It is just so fresh and tasty, and I *want* to eat it!
