Yes, you could pack yet another little container of hummus. Just like yesterday. Just like the week before. Or you can pick up a refrigerated container of soaked, cooked and seasoned beans from The Better Bean Company. Beans are available in eight combinations from Roasted Chipotle Red Beans to Tuscan White Beans. Beans provide protein and complex carbohydrates so adding them to your lunch keeps you fueled all day, and these beans are soaked to help take care of any digestive issues. At home you'll want to turn them into quesadillas, soup or bean bowls. But for work, take a few tortillas and spread them with Cuban Black Beans to make an impromptu burrito, or just enjoy them as a dip for vegetables or crackers. $3.99 per 15-ounce container. Available at Whole Foods Market and www.betterbeanco.com/.
Crackers. You need crackers.
But not just any crackers. Gluten-free crackers made from sprouted seeds (with a choice of four varieties including Everything and Garlic & Herb) or almond flour (with a choice of six varieties including Farmhouse Cheddar and Cracked Black Pepper). These crackers are from Simple Mills, maker of crackers but also of gluten-free muffin mixes, bread mixes, cookie mixes, cupcake mixes and more. The ingredients are all things you’ll recognize like organic sunflower oil and tapioca flour, and we love that they use rosemary extract as their preservative. No mystery ingredients you can’t pronounce. How nice that they're all delicious. $3.99 per 4.25 ounce package. Available at Savi Urban Market, Earth Fare, Target, Sprouts, Sevananda Natural Foods and Whole Foods Market on Ponce de Leon.
