    "JP and Mike did an EXCELLENT job. They were punctual, polite, thorough, neat, and accomodating. If we were unhappy with anything, they sought to make us happy. In addition to doing the work we requested, they found additional problems, told us what they were, and then corrected those problems after we asked them to. We would be very happy to have them come back to do additional work in the future, when necessary."

  • Hungry at 5pm? Healthy Snack Ideas!

    [caption id="attachment_1641" align="alignleft" width="403" caption="Healthy Snacks"]Snacks[/caption]


    Who doesn't like snacks? Nearing the end of your day, and all you want is a little snack to make the last hour of work a little better. I know my go to snack is pretzles and a diet coke, but that's just me. Take a look at some of these healthy recipes for great snacks and lunches to make your day a little bit more healthy and bearable! 

    Cashew-Strawberry Crunch

    Think of this as a gourmet cook's PB & J. Spread 1 tablespoon of cashew butter on a slice of Ryvita Fruit Crunch. (Or substitute peanut butter and Triscuits.) Drizzle with ½ tablespoon honey and top with sliced strawberries.

    One-Minute Antipasto Plate

    Roll a thin slice of prosciutto or ham around a part-skim mozzarella string cheese. Eat with a few olives and grapes, or add roasted bell peppers (from a jar) drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

    Health bonus: Contains almost a quarter of a woman's 1,000-milligram recommended daily allowance for calcium.

    Pineapple and Pistachios

    Combine about ¼ cup dried pineapple pieces with about 25 pistachio nuts. (For a treat, use chile-lime pistachio nuts, available at specialty stores.) Other winning dried-fruit-and-nut combos: raisins and peanuts, apricots and almonds, cherries and hazelnuts.

    Health bonus: Pineapple and nuts are both good sources of antioxidants.
