This work from home snack post will put a new grown-up treat on your radar and is sponsored by JonnyPops. As always, all opinions are my own.
Over the past [wow it has been a whole] year, I have gotten into a really smooth work from home groove and very much appreciate the flexibility that comes with taking care of business 100% from my home office. I can stay on top of household tasks, get outdoors for fresh air, and even snack a bit differently than I would at the office. Treats I would normally reserve for weekends or after work hours are now fair game as work from home snacks and I keep my freezer stocked up with JonnyPops for this very reason. Healthy snack ideas for grownups should not be boring so let me put you onto my favorite smart frozen treat.
Healthy Work From Home Snack Habits
I try to be intentional and mindful about what I'm taking in and sticking to a routine that energizes and nourishes me because it's extremely easy to slip into not-so-healthy habits while spending so much time at home. Since cooking and eating more at home, it's been a goal of mine to keep mealtimes from becoming monotonous. Here are a few healthy snack tips to keep in mind as you work from home.
- Keep smart choices on hand. I told you I stock up on JonnyPops for this reason!
- Don't snack mindlessly. Pay attention and have intention in order to avoid eating out of boredom.
- Switch it up! Rotating your mealtime faves will keep you from getting burnt out on them and even expand your palate.
Trying new work from home snack ideas helps break up any boredom that might set in and a flavorful dairy-free popsicle injects a little fun into snack time. Treats made with simple ingredients like JonnyPops are part of that. Wondering what are JonnyPops? I liken them a smoothie on a stick. They have the creamy consistency of an ice cream bar but are made with wholesome ingredients, including 100% real fruit and oat milk but no fillers and nothing artificial.
My Favorite JonnyPops Flavor
JonnyPops oat milk varieties are now available at H-E-B stores so it's easy to pick them up on my grocery runs. My favorite flavor is Orange Smoothie with Oat Milk but the Summer Strawberries, Marvelous Mango, and Chocolate Fudge are all delicious and make for solid dairy free snack options, too. Add all the flavors to your shopping list now so that you remember when you get to the frozen section!
If you follow my recipes, you likely know that I'm all about balance. I don't restrict entire categories of food but do try to enjoy simple, healthy options often so that I have no guilt around indulging when I want to do that. I take the same approach when looking for healthy work from home snack ideas and JonnyPops are kind of like the best of both worlds in that they are truly a treat to eat AND are made with fresh, simple ingredients and no dairy. They taste indulgent (I sometimes eat one for dessert) but I don't feel weighed down or guilty after partaking and can continue on with my workday without feeling sluggish.
It is important to me to partner with brands that not only make sense in my lifestyle but are also doing good in the world. JonnyPops makes a delicious, wholesome product that I would feel comfortable sharing with my nieces and nephews. And they are founded on a mission of making the world better through kindness. JonnyPops partners with schools to provide kindness and anti-bullying campaigns and prints good deed ideas on each of the pop sticks.
Look for JonnyPops at H-E-B stores near you. These are great snacks to stock up on for kids and adults alike, though you might want to keep them all to yourself, especially if you work from home. Sharing is caring, though, so be sure to pin this work from home snack idea on Pinterest. Thanks for reading!
