Healthy eating at work

Skipping the coffee and biscuits is easier said than done! We understand that a quick cup of coffee can act as a lifesaver on a busy day! However, it can become an unhealthy habit.

healthy eating at work

Beat the caffeine cravings by following these six easy steps to eating better at work:

Pack your own heart healthy snacks

Did you know that foods such as fresh fruit, whole grain cereals and dried fruit and nut mixes can give you a boost of energy when you need it most? By snacking at regular intervals throughout the day, you can keep your blood at a good level.

Make your own lunch

Control the portion size, as well as the fat and sodium content of the meal. This way you'll also be less tempted to wander to the cafeteria or vending machine. Set a goal to pack at least two servings of vegetables with your healthy lunch, include a fruit and keep in mind that whole-wheat and low GI bread is the healthier option.

Host heart-healthy meetings

In a meeting skip the cookies and pastries and try a vegetable platter with a low-fat dip or hummus, or a bowl of washed fresh fruit instead. Offer water and 100% fruit juice rather than carbonated fruit drinks or sodas.

Avoid refined sugar

Sweets and chocolates are the ultimate temptation when it comes to breaking away from your healthy eating habits. Refined sugar gives you an instant energy boost which will leave you craving more. Avoid the temptation by using sweeteners or honey in your tea, sip on water throughout the day and stick to your own healthy snacks.

Ask yourself "Am I really hungry?"

We often satisfy our munchies out of boredom or because we are thirsty. Instead of popping another chocolate truffle, take a break from your work and take a walk outside. Fresh air and a glass of water is a healthy alternative to a cup of coffee, or food. Stand up and stretch, or walk up and down a few flights of stairs to re-energise yourself.

Make heart healthy choices whenever you can to stay energized and productive on the job!
