Let’s be real for a minute. We know it’s better to eat at the table so you can put your focus squarely on your meal, but that isn’t always how things go. We eat at our desks, in the car, and while watching tv. While protein shakes and smoothies are a great option for mobile meals, those don’t always do the trick. My question is this: what kinds of things do you reach for when you need something more but don’t always have both hands available?
When I need to eat at my desk, easy-to-eat fruit and nuts is one of my favorite combos. Apple slices or strawberries with a serving of mixed nuts on the side makes me happy.
When fruit isn’t what I’m feeling at that moment, muffins make me smile. Blueberry, oatmeal, apple spice, pumpkin or sweet potato muffins are blissful one-handed goodies that don’t always leave a mess on my clothes or keyboard.
You can never go wrong with a good old fashioned sandwich. I make sure it’s not made with messy fillings so I don’t have to worry as much about a gloopy keyboard or stains on my tops.
What are you favorite meals or snacks when you eat on the go or in the office?
