Eating healthy at the office tips

Eating well can be a major struggle especially if you’re surrounded by donuts and food trucks. 

1. Get Moving

— Lunch time? Break time? Go take a walk around the block or building instead of sitting in the break room. Don’t you get enough of that office anyway? Being exposed to natural sunlight for just 15 minutes a day can decrease your risk of depression and increase immunity.

2. Pack Lunch

— If you don’t bring your own food already, it’s time you start. Oh and I don’t want to hear the excuse that you don’t have time. Here’s an idea: Prepare a batch of quinoa Sunday for the rest of the week. You can add in beans, a lean protein, or make a salad out of the quinoa for each day of the week. It’s easy, filling and nutritious.

3. Get Everyone Involved

— Staying healthy on your own can be difficult, especially in an office full of coffee-driven cookie-eating coworkers. Convince everyone to get involved. Clear the fridge out, buy a juicer, and get started.

 

 

5 Foods to Bring to Work

 

1. Stuffed Sweet Potato

– It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s healthy. Simply bake a sweet potato or two (for the following day too), cut up an avocado, and throw in some lettuce. Mix it all together and you’ve got yourself a whole meal. If you have enough time to get creative add in some sautéed vegetables.

2. Hummus Pita

— Toast a whole wheat pita, spread hummus and avocado, add your choice of raw or roasted veggies and enjoy.

3. Burrito Salad

— Place lettuce in a Tupperware, add rice and beans, top with your choice of vegetables, and a spoonful of guacamole or salsa!

4. Quinoa Bowl

— Cook the quinoa and chickpeas together in the same pot. Add tomatoes, spinach, and top with ponzu sauce.

5. Almond butter and Banana Toast

— If you’re in the mood for something sweet you can’t go wrong with this. Whole wheat toast, almond butter, and sliced banana for a well-rounded energizing snack or meal.
