Quick and Easy Time-Saver Recipes

Popcorn

Here is a beloved snack that coworkers with even the toughest dietary restrictions may enjoy. Popcorn is gluten free, vegan, dairy free and best of all, packed with health benefits.

Researchers call popcorn a “perfect snack food” that is loaded with healthful antioxidants but be wary of what you add to these kernels of goodness. Butter, cheese and other toppings can quickly add up to a diet disaster.

Keep it super simple and bring in a tub of pre-popped popcorn! An unscientific survey of our colleagues showed that the caramel covered, cheddar cheese popcorn, and the simple salted versions are the staff favorites.

Apples and Cheese

Our home state is known for its varieties of apples, thanks to the University of Minnesota, which has been developing apples since 1878! Bring in a bag or two of the ever-popular Honeycrisp or our new favorite, SweeTango, along with a wedge of cheddar cheese and viola, you have a winner. The best part is there is no kitchen time involved. Folk can cut their own slices and enjoy this gluten-free, healthful, and delicious snack.
