Be it the success of a deal or the relaxation of your workaholic employees. Organizing an office party is a great way to boost your company's morale. We understand that throwing a successful office party takes a lot of planning. You must consider many factors, such as the budget, games, lighting, music, and pre-party anxiety. Choosing office party snacks is an entirely different level of difficulty.
But why should healthy snacks be chosen for corporate events?
When you hear the phrase "party!" What comes to your mind first?
An evening full of junk food treats, and sugary drinks, in other words, eating a lot of calories in a day. So it's reasonable to wonder why you should eat healthy when you're ready to gorge on those delicious chicken wings or cheese balls.
Dispel the myth!
Healthy snacks can be served at office parties.
Replacing calorie-laden meals with vegetables and fruits, even at parties, keeps your employees active and agile during the games and events you participate in. It also prevents you from packing extra pounds during events.
You've reached the right place because we've listed the top eight drinks and snacks for corporate events below:
#1 Fresh Mango Tomato Salsa on Tortilla Chips
If you're looking for a sour and spicy dip, this colorful dish is a must-try! It will take you at least 15 minutes to prepare. Grab some ripe mangoes, jalapenos, bell pepper, onions, and lemons to spice it up. This is an excellent appetizer for any summer gathering. It is gluten-free, and you can serve your employee's burritos, rolls, nachos, or tortilla chips.
#2 Packets of Oatmeal
Some people simply do not eat breakfast and must be awake for several hours before considering eating anything. Keep plain, unsweetened oatmeal packets on hand for this crew. To make this snack more appealing, drizzle it with honey or maple syrup and add some tasty flavor assortments like coconut and sliced bananas or slivered almonds, cinnamon, and diced apples.
#3 Dark Chocolate Coated Nuts
There are times when only chocolate will suffice. There are, however, healthier alternatives to a gooey, caramel-and-peanut-filled candy bar. The dark chocolate-covered nuts contain antioxidants, protein, and healthy fats. Furthermore, blueberries, Acai berries, raisins, cranberries, ginger, and goji berries are also delicious and healthy options.
#4 Snack Bars
Some granola bars are simply candy bars disguised as granola bars, delivering an alarming amount of refined sugar with little fiber or nutrition. Other bars, however, emphasize healthy ingredients with as few processed additives as possible. So ask for (or look for) bars with little to no added sugar, at least 3g of protein, a high percentage of your daily fiber requirement, and, ideally, no trans fats.
#5 Greek yogurt
Greek yogurt, high in protein and flavor, is a thicker, more satisfying version of yogurt that is extremely popular among people looking to eat more healthfully. When combined with fresh fruit (or the previously mentioned dried fruit and nuts), it makes a snack substantial enough to serve as a light lunch.
Smoothies are a unique way to increase your employees' consumption of fruits and vegetables. Stock your pantry with bags of frozen fruit, spinach, kale, and plant-based or cow's milk and protein powder containers.
#7 Peanut Butter and Apples
You simply cannot go wrong by providing fresh fruit to your employees as snacks for corporate events. It is simple, delicious, filling, and nutritious. Then, stock a few different nut butter types to add extra protein and fat to the mix.
#8 Protein Bites
These protein-packed snacks, whether called energy bites or protein bites, will help you get through your afternoon work slump. These make-ahead options range from fruit bites to chocolate treats and provide a filling and delicious pick-me-up.
