A few months ago, I got in touch with the team managing food and dining at Microsoft to bring in more healthy options. The team has been extremely open and responsive, and I’m excited to share that they are launching 4 newly-created, healthy grab ‘n’ go items as a result of this process! The goal here is to give people convenient, healthy alternatives to a slice of pizza, which until now has been the go-to item for many in a time crunch. Here are some pics and blurbs.
All the new items side-by-side
