Eating healthy at the office can be a real challenge. We all have colleagues who bring sugary treats like donuts, cupcakes, etc., add to that the never-ending supply of coffee, soda and trans fat loaded treats sitting on the breakroom table. It takes considerable strength to say ‘no’ to that. Furthermore, we are all guilty of a sedentary lifestyle and skipping the gym all too often.
Our best bet to remain healthy is to choose healthier eating options and in an era of online grocery shopping, it is easier than ever. There are countless readily available snacks that are not just wholesome, but are proven to improve productivity. Burpy will let you in on its productivity enhancing snack list, so that the next time you cross office break room or panty you make a smarter choice -
Almonds: They are loaded with Vitamin E, magnesium and calcium, in fact, they boast of significant amount of fiber and protein too. Snacking on a handful of almonds everyday can improve your memory while reducing risk of some ghastly diseases.
Yogurt: This is our personal favorite. It’s not only yummy, but nutritious, it has probiotics, vitamin B, calcium and protein and is super easy to store. Interestingly, you can dress it up with your favorite fruits and get as many varieties as you want – non-fat, greek or flavored. You take your pick.
