Workplace violence, fatigue and falls – to name a few – are some common examples of office hazards. But what most employee safety handbooks fail to mention is the inevitable rumbles in the tummy at odd times that could spiral out of control if we ignore them long enough!
Hold up – isn’t it bad to snack?
Contrary to popular belief, snacking (i.e. eating a small quantity of food) in between meals is actually healthy as it keeps our metabolism humming while providing us the needed energy to stay alert and focused at work – so long as we stick to the nutritious nibbles (as opposed to junk food). However, the increase in false advertising claims over food labelling in recent years has only made it more difficult for us to discern the truly healthy ones on the supermarket shelves. Recognising this challenge that we consumers had been facing, dedicated online businesses that specialise in wholesome snacks have sprung up to save us the hassle of scrutinising ingredient lists (and of course, our waistline!), one of which is Nuts and Snacks.
Nuts and Snacks is an online retailer and wholesaler for, as its name suggests, snacks that are not only nutritious, but also pleasing to the palate. Its catalogue boasts a wide array of dried fruits and nuts ranging from dried cranberries to Turkish apricots, and almond to macadamia (with an option of having them raw or baked) in 100g, 500g or 1 kg packets. Carefully selected to ensure that only the best possible ingredients are used, these munchies are touted as good sources of fat, fiber and protein. Furthermore, they are also fortified with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants such as magnesium and vitamin E, hence rendering them a healthy yet affordable option to tide you over till your next meal – without the guilt.Each product page includes a detailed description of the product’s nutrition facts, suggested ways to enjoy it and its country of origin to aid you in making an informed choice, especially if you are placing corporate orders. After all, you definitely want to create a positive first impression for clients by engaging their taste buds when they pop by at your office.
Given that Nuts and Snacks is also a wholesaler, prices are relatively low (less than $5 for most 100g packets) and bulk purchases are rewarded with significant discounts and free local delivery (or flat rate of $5 for orders below $80 per location). Don’t worry about over-ordering or taste preferences. Since the products are kept in food-grade resealable airtight packaging with oxygen absorbers added to eliminate extra oxygen and prevent food degradation, you can be rest assured that your (unopened) snacks will remain fresh for the longest time (which is up to 3 months when stored in a cool dry place, according to Google)! Besides, aren’t we somehow more likely to reach for a plate of nuts than for a basket of wrapped sweets if they are both laid right in front of us?There you have it. Stock up your pantry with these affordable wholesome nibbles from Nuts and Snacks and you will no longer need to fight off your hunger pains in the middle of the day 😋 Go on, your body (and wallet) will thank you!
