Do you frequently feel sluggish and tired while working? Well, what you eat could be the reason behind your lethargic days. We know that the office (or its surrounding) do not typically offer the best food. Fairly-priced healthy snacks are rare. It would be no surprise if your office canteen, too, does not go with the health-trend. Thus, if you want to keep your body fit, and your energy brimming, maybe it’s time to bring your own lunch, or at least add a couple of tweaks to your usual meals. Here is the 5 energy boosting healthy snacks that you can bring to work!
Pick your two most favorite fruits that you can bring to the office. The best choices could be apple and banana because they are easy to put in your bag or carry. Furthermore, bananas can give you a positive your mood, and apples can make you feel full. You may snack on the apple before you eat your lunch, and the banana before you go home. Munching on these fruits at that particular time can make you feel energized and stuffed, thus, you will eventually eat less meals during lunch and dinner. Also, the fruits serve as your daily healthy treats.
No, we’re not talking about over-the-counter supplements you must take daily. You can get vitamin C elsewhere, and it would be better if it’s coming from an organic source. Give your body a daily dose of vitamin C by tweaking your ordinary bottle of water, and turn it into a fruit infuser water bottle. Mix your water with lemons, strawberries or kiwis. You can place this mixture in the infuser tube, and bring to your workplace. Not only that, it’s also a nice way to spruce up your everyday-boring-water. Also, doing this enriches your drink with nutrients, and fills it with thirst quenching freshness.
Mother Earth bestows us the best delicacies every month. Grab the opportunity to nourish your body with seasonal fruits and veggies, and include them in your lunchbox. Prepare a meal loaded with a bowl of vegetables, some salad, a curd, and two chapattis. You can easily prepare this to-go lunch if you have left over salad, and a stock of fresh veggies, curd and chapattis in your pantry or fridge. If not, you can prepare your seasonal lunch at night, and then just re-heat in the morning.
One Green Tea Bag
We know it is easier said than done, but it’s time to forget your favorite coffee. There is something irresistibly special about caffeine, coffee-addicts know that for sure. However, if your aim is to be fit and healthy, sadly, coffee would be no help. It may even mess up your system. Consuming caffeinated products may ruin your energy, and leave you feeling exhausted after an energy peak. Thus, we suggest you to turn to green tea instead. It isn’t difficult to love, anyway – especially, the good ones. Resist the temptation to finish a cup of coffee at 4pm by drinking green tea. This magical concoction isn’t only beneficial to your health, as it improves your digestion and metabolism, it will make you feel awake as well.
Nuts are the savior of health buffs when it comes to fighting the urge of munching on junk foods. Though the mentioned lunch tweaks would probably prevent your cravings, in case they occur, you can turn on to nuts. These bits of goodness are not only savory and addictive, they are incredibly healthy, too! Before heading to work, bring with you a handful of nuts like almonds, walnuts, cashew and raisins. In case you’re hungry, craving for chips, or just bored, you can always grab a pack of nuts to eat.
