Working out of the house, it’s an ongoing challenge for me to figure out how to keep my food intake balanced across the day, so that I don’t get home from work at 6:00 and shove everything that isn’t breathing down my gullet.
I rarely lunch out of the office. Sometimes I’ll bring a lunch (today it is a bed of romaine and arugula topped with red peppers, sundried tomatoes, and tunaught croquettes), but it’s not unusual for me to miss lunch entirely. So, then it’s snacks if I don’t want to be ravenous by quitting time.
Here is a sampling of what my “snack drawer” looks like right now:
As you can see, there is quite a bit of coffee (and espresso pods are just off to the left), some miso soup, pistachios, rice cakes, grits, chocolate, and tea. It’s not the most inspired collection of snacks.
Help me out, readers! What’s in your work snack drawer and why?
