Slowly up the career ladder, we often forget about their health and body.But who, if not we ourselves, can find the balance between work and healthy lifestyle? Experts told how to eat in the office, without prejudice to the shapes and health benefits.
Plan snacks should be based on calories and satiety of meals. If you have a full Breakfast, for lunch you can eat some fruit. If the Breakfast was light as a snack will fit sandwich on whole wheat bread with fish or white meat poultry.
The alternative to such a sandwich can become a mini-spring rolls one bite of pita or lettuce leaves. A good snack can be considered fruits and berries – they are not so difficult to take with you to the office. It is important to remember that fruits contain simple sugars – fructose. So give preference to unsweetened varieties, and have them better to 16-17 hours, says Mikhail Gavrilov, PhD, is the author of patented methods of correction of eating behavior and weight loss.
Vegetables are also good for snacking. You can bring vegetable sticks – cut into strips cucumber, carrots, celery, zucchini. If you just spray them with olive oil, the feeling of fullness after a snack will last longer. Salads with legumes (they contain lots of protein) a good option for a hearty snack. For its preparation you can use any beans: kidney beans, chickpeas, lentils, peas. Combine them with any vegetables; as a sauce, again, you can choose olive oil.
The snacks may include nuts. To get involved with them is not necessary – although this product is useful, but it’s pretty high in calories. To avoid the temptation to eat the whole packet at once, pour the right amount of nuts to a plate and remove the packing away from the eyes.
Important addition: during snack always distracted from the work. Highlight on the food at least 5-10 minutes.
