What are the best healthy snacks to offer at work?
So far, we have hit on two critical topics regarding healthy eating habits in the office: The Importance of Healthy Office Snack Programs and Important Factors to Consider When Choosing a Healthy Office Snack Service.
But what kind of snacks are we talking about?
We have a lot of answers! Based on 6AM Health’s food offerings, we will help you decide which types of snacks might be best for your office space. But let me start with this preface: There is so much to choose from!
Cold Pressed Juices
What screams “health” better than a fresh-pressed juice? Cold-pressed juice is refreshing and jam-packed with essential vitamins and minerals. Drinking cold-pressed juice is also an excellent way to make sure you are getting enough fruits and vegetables in your diet.
We offer Green Immunity Juice, Cold-Pressed Grapefruit Juice, Cold-Pressed Orange Juice, and more!
That’s right–we have coffee! America’s favorite morning beverage. Coffee can improve energy levels, help you burn fat, and fight depression and make you happier. Read more here about the health benefits of coffee based on science.
We partner with a local company, Atomic Coffee Roasters, to bring you great small-batch coffee. Starting in Beverly, MA, in 1996, this family-owned and operated business focuses on getting the best in specialty coffee, cold brew, and more to Boston’s North Shore. We were looking to add a fantastic coffee to our fridge offering and were inspired by their mission (and their taste!).
To keep you hydrated throughout the workday, we offer various beverages, ranging from plant-based protein shakes to kombucha tea. As is the theme of this blog post, I want to specifically highlight some of our local partners, who have perfected some of our favorite drinks.
Culture Pop is a soda you can feel good about! Crafted with organic juices, organic spices, and live probiotics for a delicious, ‘fun’ctional sip that POPS! Founded by Tom First and launched recently, in June 2020, Culture POP is tasty, slightly spice, and fruity. It’s also much better for you than traditional soda; it’s Non-GMO, Vegan, Gluten-Free, plant-based, and uses no high-intensity sweeteners.
Drink Simple Maple Water was founded by Jeff and Kate, two New England natives with a passion for whole foods and sports nutrition. During a trip to Quebec for the Ironman Mont-Tremblant Triathlon, they discovered the refreshing and subtly sweet taste of maple water.
And last but certainly not least, Slate Milk is modern chocolate milk that is lactose-free, high protein, and low sugar. Their founders had a love for chocolate milk–I mean, who doesn’t?! But traditional chocolate milks weren’t cutting it, so they set out to create something both delicious and nutritious, unlike anything before it. We’ve become obsessed!
Who doesn’t love a sweet pick-me-up to get them over the 2 pm afternoon slump? We offer healthy favorites, such as Smart Sweets candy.
And what better to pair with the sweet options than some salty delights? Our fridges offer a variety of salty snack options, including Wonderful Pistachios, yum!
Fresh Snacks and Meals
Lastly, we pride ourselves on our fresh options, made locally and with lots of care. In this area, we offer grain bowls, salads, sandwiches, wraps, and more.
What are some fan favorites? The Buffalo Chicken Bowl has pulled chicken, rainbow quinoa, chopped celery, grated carrots, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese dressing. Are you getting hungry yet? My personal favorite is the Arugula Caprese Salad. You can check out more of our fresh menu items here.
Now that you know some of the options, is there anything you would like to see in our Fresh Fridges? What is your favorite healthy snack to have at work?
