Smoke breaks are out, salsa breaks are in.
So Carrie, the person I share my office with, brought in homemade salsa the other day. It was really good, but that’s not the point.
I’ve always been a bit perturbed by people taking smoke breaks. It just doesn’t seem fair that they stop working for a period of time to go smoke. That’s what got me thinking.
We keep the salsa in a minifridge under the desk and every afternoon, I’d sit on the couch, get out the salsa and enjoy a nice 15 minutes of minced vegetable goodness.
The benefits of taking salsa breaks go way beyond just the taste. The moderate heat one experiences wakes you up and helps to push through the afternoon drag and you are much less likely to die of cancer from eating salsa.
