Can you believe we’re in the last full week of August? I seriously have no idea where this summer has gone. The season seemed endless when I was a kid, but now it’s, like, blink and you miss it.
As a nutritionist, it’s really interesting to note patterns in what my clients and patients want to talk about. You would think the summer brings bikini-body thoughts to the forefront, but what I’ve found this year is that lots of people want to talk about work-appropriate snacks to get them from lunch to drinks to dinner.
I recently wrote a post for YouBeauty about some healthy snacks you can enjoy at your desk that will give you an energy boost to get you through the afternoon. What 4 pm slump?
My personal favorite lately: plain Greek yogurt with a chia shot and honey swiped from the hospital cafeteria on the days that I’m punching the clock. I’m also partial to crumbled-up fiber d’lish bars (the orange cranberry flavor, especially) in yogurt these days as well, though I’m sure I’ll get tired of that eventually.
I’ve got some big schedule changes coming up this fall, so as with any major life change, it will be interesting for me to see how that impacts the choices I make throughout the day. I mean that in the best way possible, though.
Until then, however, let’s enjoy these last few days of summer, desk snacks and all.
What are your favorite snacks as of late?
