Avoid mindless snacking at your desk
When you work in an office, the temptation to snack mindlessly can be easy to give in to as you stare at your computer screen. However, such snacking quickly increases your waistline while decreasing your productivity, leading you to feel sluggish and tired.
Instead, you should indulge in nutritious snacks such as fruit that can help boost your energy levels while also boosting your immunity. Fruitful Office delivers fresh office fruit to your workplace on a daily basis – so you and your staff can enjoy healthy, seasonal fruit for breakfast and lunch, allowing you to forgo the vending machine altogether.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite healthy office snacks that give you the natural sugar boost you need, so you can increase your energy without damaging yourself:
Fresh fruit is full of important vitamins, minerals and nutrients to keep your body and mind functioning at optimum levels. As well as this, fruit is a fantastic source of natural sugar, so you can get the boost you need without suffering for it later.
Dried fruit is a fantastic snack option if you want to have fruit on the go, or if you’d like to have a mix of fruits. Try a bag full of dried apricots, raisins, apples, or banana chips, which are sweet and chewy, so they make a satisfying snack while being high in fibre.
Take a fresh banana and pop it in the freezer for later for a fantastic snack. Creamy and tasty, it’s a delicious treat that you know if good for you, packed full of glucose to help your performance.
Almonds are easy to eat and are a great source of protein and healthy fat. They are a satisfying snack with nine essential nutrients and a lot of fibre and protein while being rich in vitamins too.
This is a tasty treat, which feels a lot naughtier than it is, so it will satisfy any cravings you have while being high in fibre.
String cheese or cottage cheese can be an excellent snack, either on its own or with fruit. Cheese is a great source of protein and will help you stay awake and alert at your desk.
