Maria and I always try to keep healthy snacks on hand in order to stay away from NYC bodegas or any bakery with macaroons in the window. At the office I tend to have things like fresh fruit, veggies and hummus, or a green smoothie stored in the fridge. However, when I work outside of my office these things don’t travel so well in my bag… which is also crammed with dry shampoo, a change of shoes (flats are a necessity in the city), a phone charger, and a random assortment of makeup.
Last week I flew to Boston for work to visit our existing luxury properties and a few that are under construction. Since it was only a day trip, I scheduled in lots of property tours, site visits, and meetings into a short time period. To make sure I wasn’t starving all day (because I am not a pleasant child when I am) I packed these Gluten Free Zucchini Raisin Muffins in my bag! They are filling, wholesome, and kept me from grabbing something unhealthy on the go. And like pretty much anything else on this blog, they are super easy to make.
