5 Simple Snack Recipes for the Desk Ridden

For those of us in customer service roles, we’re more than likely working at our desk, on the computer for multiple hours during the day.

And, if we get hungry, we often grab what is quick, cheap (hello free office donuts that may have been sitting out for the last 5 hours) and convenient, rather than what is healthy for us. Because well, we have to get back to work.

But, it doesn’t have to be that way.

While we’re solving problems and nourishing our customer’s spirit, we can also take time to snack and nourish our own bodies. Why?
