THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY SNACKS AT WORKPLACE
Oftentimes at work, we don’t have enough time to consume healthy and nutritional meal. That’s why is is important to eat nutritional snacks. Having healthy snacks available around our workspace can prevent us from getting too hungry with junk foods as the only option.
Properly snacking can be part of a healthy weight loss program — and that’s just one thing of the health benefits of snacking. Instead of sticking to three meals a day, why not see how healthy snacking can play a role in your diet?
The best way to snack is to have monitored snack (150 – 200 kcal) with a glass of water to keep yourself feeling full. Also, be sure you’re eating every three to five hours. Go for a snack between breakfast and lunch, and one between lunch and dinner.
Snacking can boost brain power which is great when trying to concetrate on our work. It also can help focusing and keeping us engaged in the task at hand. It provides our brain with nutritients that are essential to work better.
Not only it provides us energy, healthy snacks can help us beat cravings and lose weight. Nutritional snacking will prevent us from getting hungry and grabing first meal around. Snacks will help us not overeat at main meals, which saves calories. Eating every few hours, our metabolism is amp up and burning calories all day.
Lastly, healthy snacking might even decrease your risk of developing heart disease and diabetes. It levels our blood sugar even out so there are no spikes of insulin that can make us gain weight. It can also help to lower cholesterol.
