Staying Sharp on the Road: Snacks

As I mentioned here, food is incredibly important to me. If I don’t eat something every few hours, I become (at best) wilted and at worst (and more realistically) very cranky. Over time, I’ve come to learn that I must always, always, always have a good snack or two with me. In the office as well … Continue Reading →
