Today, one of the ladies in my office brought in doughnuts. I had one, but most people in the office prostested loudly that they shouldn't/couldn't eat something like that.
It's high time I brought in something. Should I assume that they were protesting too much and bring doughnuts or cookies? Or should I bring in something healthier? If so, what's a healthy office snack?
Cucumber and carrot sticks? Apples? Or, if you choose to ignore their healthiness, chocolate. :-)
Fruit that people don't tend to buy often is always popular in my office. Things like berries or peaches or plums. Of course, might not be the right time of the year for something like that. More commonly eaten fruits like bananas, apples and pears I find are not as popular unless sliced or served up in a pretty way. Another thing is crackers and cheese - not SUPER healthy, but definitely better than doughnuts. People love crackers and they love cheese. Another possibility is little dixie cups of nuts and raisins with a few m&ms - your own little trail mix, so to speak.
I bring in krispy kreme. It's too good to worry about health.
Squares of Ghiradelli dark chocolate. Not many calories at all in dark chocolate. A bite is satisfying, they're classy, and you can fill them out with some grapes.
Or,if you're feeling swellegant, Adriatic Fig spread mixed with mascarpone, with little honey pretzels for dipping. Available at Whole Foods. So yummy.
What office, by the way? What's the new chob?
I'm always in favor of carrots.
I used to have an office like that. I started in bringing in carrot sticks and they proved very popular. Later, others brought in carrot sticks: my skinnier cut ones were definately more popular. The important point is bite size!. Something really one or two bites is very popular. And it interferes less with work.
