The office can be a stressful place, not only because of the fast-paced work environment, but because it can also bust your diet, and make you gain extra weight. On your way to the desk, you’ll have candy jars placed in the cubicles, vending machines selling colas and junk food, and people ordering take-out lunch. Can healthy eating be achieved in the workplace?
Here are some helpful diet suggestions to consider.
To make sure you eat right while in the office, it would be helpful if you bring your own food and snacks. Bring a zipper bag filled with granola and cereal, or fill it with sliced carrots, red peppers, broccoli, string cheese and strawberries. For lunch, prepare your favorite sandwich fillings, or bring microwavable soups. This should help you steer away from ordering take-out food.
Keep Herbal Tea Bags In Your Office Desk
And to keep you refreshed, while staying away from the vending machines, it would be helpful if you keep green or herbal tea packs in your office desk. A cool cup of green tea in the morning or afternoon can soothe the senses, and prevents you from buying sugar-laced colas and fruit drinks.
