I think that hummus and baby carrots are pretty much the perfect work snack. They’re cheap. They’re healthy. It’s super easy to throw a bag of carrots and a tub of hummus in the work fridge on Monday and have something to munch on all week, and they’re not quite enticing enough that anyone’s going to steal them.
The key to keeping this snack from getting boring is switching up the hummus. In college, I was all about roasted red pepper. Up until recently, I was a big believer in roasted garlic. That was before I went to a housewarming party where I was introduced to Trader Joe’s Spicy Hummus. It is the best. It’s not super spicy, and I think tastes a little like curry or some other Indian spice, and I think it’s delicious. I will warn you that opinions at the party were divided, and some people thought it was the weirdest thing ever. Others, myself possibly included, immediately went to Trader Joe’s and bought mildly embarrassing amounts of it.
