Milk, bottled water, OJ,…fresh fruit like apples, oranges, or bananas.…Nutrition bars, granola or trail mix.…And if you love baking,…try homemade brownies, cookies, or other pastries.…Stock the kitchen according to the number…of days your guests are staying,…and budget accordingly.…Check in with your guests to discover any…special dietary restrictions.…A word to the wise however,…know your audience.…If you host mostly business travelers,…they'll use a company card to eat at restaurants,…or order food delivered.…
