4 Ways To Eat Better At Work

August 5, 2015

The workplace can be a plethora of temptation.  Cookies in the break room, soda down the hall, and candy dishes at the reception desk.  The good news is you don’t have to give into these constant healthy-eating destroyers.  Try these simple tips that will help you eat better at work.

Eat a complete and filling breakfast in the morning. 

Grabbing a banana or granola bar might be an easy option, but an hour later your stomach will cry for some type of sodium-filled vending machine snack.  Avoid this by eating a hearty breakfast that fills you until lunch hour. (And always pack a health snack if you get hungry anyway- like a banana or granola bar).

Prepare while you are full.

Prepare future meals following dinner or your breakfast in the morning.  This will unconsciously help you to make lighter, healthier choices because you aren’t reaching for comfort foods in a hurry. 


Dehydration is often mistaken for hunger.  Staying hydrated will help you avoid unnecessary snacking or overeating.  Make sure to have a reusable water bottle, you are likely to drink almost 30% more water with a water bottle by your side at all times.

Don’t skip the sweet stuff.

Eating better doesn’t mean that you can’t indulge a little.  Especially if you pack one of the smartest sweets available, Dark Chocolate.  If dark chocolate isn’t around, no problem, enjoy a small portion of the chocolate cake or office morning donut.

Yours in health,
