The power suit is a staple of many offices, but what about a power smoothie? Organic smoothies are a delicious and easy way to get in a serving of fruit or vegetable (or three!) and keep your energy up between meals. A break room blender and the contents of your Boston Organics box open a world of snacking possibilities for you and your office staff. By combining a liquid (almond milk, dairy milk, juice, coconut water), a thickener (banana, avocado, oats, yogurt), a protein (nut butter, yogurt) and fruit or vegetables, you can mix and match endlessly. Here are some of our favorite recipes, simple enough for a healthy office environment.

As we get farther into winter, citrus season picks up! You will start to see a variety of sweet and flavorful fruit zipped up in its own brightly colored jacket. Make the most of the season with our guide to the most common (and delicious) citrus varieties you can expect to see in your Boston Organics deliveries, as well as tips for keeping these little gems fresh.

With unemployment at an all time low and the demands of work increasing, companies are continuously looking for services and products to improve office culture, and keep employees healthy, energized and engaged. This has led to some pretty exciting new ideas, as well as ways of rethinking existing employee benefits. There's more to employee benefits than ping pong tables or beer in the break room (although there's nothing wrong with those).
We're headed to the PERKS Convention on May 2. This is a unique event for anyone that is responsible for managing employee benefits (i.e., HR, Facilities, Office Admins). PERKS showcases all kinds of products, services and amenities for employees. If you're able to join us at PERKS, we'd love to see you (visit us at booth 158). But if you can't make it, these are a few companies offering some cool office perks.
