Snack Guide for The Working Girl

I am a firm believer in all things food, especially the art of snacking. But when it comes to snacking, I try to keep a stash of healthy options at my desk (or cubicle). Because no one, I repeat no one, has time to be #hangry. It's not a good look for anyone.

For me personally, I like to eat 3 meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and 2 snacks (mid-morning + afternoon) a day. I know the times have changes, but my meals are generally larger (in portion and calories) and snacks are kept between 150-200 calories. Below are some of my favorites!

  • Water 
  • Keurig K-Cups (Starbucks' House Blend, for me)
  • ¼ cup Nuts (I prefer Raw Unsalted Cashews or Blue Diamond's Sriracha Almonds)  
  • Quest Bar (Perfect afternoon or pre-workout snack)
  • Fage Total 0% Plain Greek Yogurt 
  • Ginger Chews (Love these little "candies!" Pick some up from Trader Joe's)
And any girl working that 9 to 5 (cue Dolly Parton), knows the importance of coffee #CoffeeBeforeTalkie. I love my coffee shops (i.e. Corso, The Cookie Studio, Starbucks, Octane, and the list goes on), but I'm trying to be more economical #GrownUpProblems these days. So, here's my go-to recipe when I play barista at home!

Sugar Free Vanilla Latte
