A Guide to Buying the Best Bulk Office Snacks - That Also Taste Delicious
As Virginia Woolf once said: “one cannot think well, love well, or sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
We tend to agree.
And if you’re reading this blog, you probably also agree. Food is one of life’s basic necessities, so why not enjoy it? However, there are so many options out there that it can be a little overwhelming at times - especially if you’re the one in charge of buying bulk office snacks for everyone in your workplace. How do you balance taste with healthy, and how can you please the most people?
Those are all excellent questions, and ones we have asked ourselves on many occasions. So, we’ve put together this guide on our five favorite healthy foods to nibble on. Read on to get some ideas for your next purchase of bulk office snacks.
They’re crunchy, they’re delicious, and they’re endlessly snackable. What’s not to love about almonds?
If you’re going to be buying bulk office snacks, we recommend including an order of these tasty little tree nuts. They’re packed with protein, which provides steady energy to help ward off the dreaded afternoon slump. And they’re also full of other important nutrients (like Vitamin E and magnesium) that contribute to overall health, boost immunity, and can even stave off long-term diseases.
Almonds can also help people with Type 2 Diabetes manage their conditions by helping keep their blood sugar on an even keel. They can also reduce inflammation, and may even support the good gut bacteria that aids in healthy digestion.
Much like almonds, pistachios are also full of great nutrients, including fiber, protein, Vitamin E, and magnesium. And nutrients aside, they also have awesome flavor that’s almost universally enjoyed - making them a crowd-pleaser that’s perfect for bulk office snack orders.
Some studies suggest that pistachios may improve cholesterol levels. They’re also really good at improving and maintaining heart health, which is great news for literally everyone. And, like almonds, they can help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, especially for people who are diabetic and pre-diabetic.
Ounce by ounce, dried apricots are packed full of more nutritional awesomeness than just about anything else. And they taste great to boot!
All dried fruit is a great source of fiber, but dried apricots contain up to 16% of your daily recommended intake per serving. And a healthy fiber intake helps your body regulate its weight naturally.
But fiber is just the beginning. Dried apricots are an excellent source of several key nutrients, including iron, vitamin A, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. So what does that mean for you?
In short, it means a boosted immune system, better digestion, more energy, stronger bones, better eye health, a calmer mood, healthier cell growth, and more!
And all from a handful of dried apricots. Pretty cool, right?
(A word of caution on dried apricots: they are high in natural sugars. Therefore, we recommend you eat them in moderation to make sure your teeth aren’t overwhelmed.)
You can enjoy the toasty, nutty flavor of roasted sunflower seeds knowing that you’re doing your body a favor by eating them. They contain significant amounts of fiber, protein, Vitamin E, folate, iron, magnesium, selenium, and more! (Basically, all those nutrients you didn’t know you needed but are SUPER important for a happy and healthy body.)
The antioxidants in sunflower seeds can help prevent long term damage and keep your body healthier at the cellular level. Some studies suggest that they might also help lower bad cholesterol, maintain healthy blood sugar, and lower your blood pressure. Scientists think that they might also reduce the risk of heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
Sunflower seeds are also packed with healthy fats. And when we say packed, we mean it! A one cup serving contains a whopping 72 grams - and only about seven of those are from saturated fat. The rest are all from healthy, beneficial unsaturated fats that your body needs in order to function properly.
That being said, definitely eat sunflower seeds in moderation. They have a great nutritional profile, but too much of a good thing is still too much.
Our granola is filled with health-boosting ingredients like almonds and oats. Not only do you get all the benefits that come from almonds, but you’ll also get the extra fiber that oats provide!
Plus, granola is one of the most versatile snacks on the market, making it an easy crowd-pleaser. You can eat it with milk, mix it into yogurt, sprinkle it with fresh or dried fruit, create your own granola bars at home, and more! Whether it’s breakfast or an afternoon snack, granola will always be there to give you the energy boost you need to get through the day.
These five options are our favorites (and make great bulk office snacks), but there are many more out there for you to mix, match, and enjoy. Check out our many tasty products, and get in touch with us if you have questions!
