Now that we covered avoiding staying sedentary and keeping a work life balance now its important to talk about the big one - nutrition. Eating healthy at work can be challenging or even eating in general. But, eating well is essential for staying energized, focused and feeling well throughout the entire workday.
01 START YOUR DAY RIGHT
Staying motivated to eat well at work begins in the home. Start your day off right with a filling breakfast.
02 MEAL PREP AND MENU PLAN
Another step to take at home, in order to stick to your goals, is practice menu planning and meal prep. Menu planning is the first step but meal prep is the most important. If you have healthy food ready and prepped, then you are more likely to pack it and eat it.
03 AVOID TEMPTATION
There can be a lot of temptations at work such as donuts, pizza lunches, or work lunches at your local restaurant. Packing your lunch is step one but also having adequate healthy snacks on hand is important to keep hunger and temptation at bay.
04 GET CREATIVE
Many people don't have access to a microwave or stove during lunch hour so its important to pack delicious foods that can be eaten cold. Try making jar salads, energy balls, sandwiches, hummus and raw vegetables.
05 STOCK UP
Like I said before, pack snacks at work but keep some in your desk for emergencies such as roasted chickpeas and trail mix.
In good health,
