I think about food all.the.time. It’s my job but I also can’t stop thinking about what I want to eat next. What my next meal will be, will there be chocolate or butter or cheese? I hope so. It’s imperative that I plan ahead with some healthy choices because if I let the hangries (Hungry + Angry = Hangry) I will eat anything and everything in my path. Or at least at arms reach.
And when you work with food every single day, it can be dangerous. I mentioned before that keeping some snacks handy helps me be more mindful about what I’m putting in my mouth. AND it keeps me from going into binge mode, which is dangerous. No crumb is safe.
Coming up with clever and inventive ways to snack doesn’t have to be a full-time job…but it can be fun! And The Laughing Cow makes it easy to mix things up. With eight mouthwatering flavors available, the possibilities are positively endless. Way beyond just your simple “cheese and cracker” pairing….you can pretty much dream up anything your taste buds desire.
You’ll love my new favorite snack, Southwestern Cucumber Sandwiches! Spicy, fiery little bites that will knock your socks off. Pack them in your lunchbox for to stave off a mid-afternoon slump or snack on a few pre-dinner to keep your appetite in check. And The Laughing Cow Queso Fresco Chipotle wedges make these super tasty and easy to make. Low carb and full of flavor, these are perfect to stave off the hangries in anyone. Yourself included!
So simple to make, just spread some cucumber slices with The Laughing Cow Queso Fresco with Chipotle, sprinkle with a little chili powder, top with your favorite salsa (I used a sweet corn salsa here) and close it up with another slice of cucumber. Take a bite…and then make another.
