There are so many great conversations on the Hotline -- it's hard to choose a favorite. But we'll be doing it, once a week, to spread the wealth of our community's knowledge -- and to keep the conversation going.
Today: We've conquered the desk lunch, now it's time to upgrade the office snack.
A cabinet, a desk drawer, a vending machine -- every office has a munchies mecca. Whether worn down or simply bored, we unwaveringly gravitate toward these snack stockpiles as mid-afternoon draws near. In this desperate time, there's no differentiating between carrots and cheese puffs -- we lunge for whatever's in reach. Even when we have the best of intentions, it's easy to mindlessly revert back to the comfort of chocolate sandwich cookies.
Stuck in a rut of hummus and baby carrots, self-proclaimed "serious office snacker" Summer of Eggplant turned to the Hotline for tips on what to pack for a wholesome, office-appropriate treat. The snack savants of our community heard her call and, thankfully, were eager to share.
Tell us: What do you munch on at the office?
