Desk Drawer Snacking

While almost everyone knows they should eat healthy, the preparation and planning required to do so—especially when away from home—can seem nearly impossible.

Making healthy choices during your workday is doable, though, with a little help from Peeled Snacks! Use these tips stay healthy and energized all day long.

Get organized

The key to healthy eating is planning ahead. Purchase healthy snacks in bulk or consider a regular subscription order, like Amazon’s subscribe-and-save, so you don’t have to continually plan and shop. That way you have what you need, right when you need it.

Plan to eat fruits and vegetables

We know when adults get their recommended 5-9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day, as part of a healthy diet, they are better prepared to focus and may experience increased immune function—meaning less sick days. Always plan to have healthy snacks on hand, so you’ll be less likely to reach for chips or soda.

Beat the afternoon slump

If you tend to feel sluggish during late afternoon, try engaging in some light activity. A walk around the block and change of scenery may be all you need to refocus. Healthy snacks may help as well. Look for vitamin and-mineral-rich foods to help your energy return.

What goes up must come down

Avoid foods high in sugar and caffeinated drinks that will give you an artificial “high.” After the initial effect wares off, you may feel worse than you did before. Instead, opt for fiber-rich, natural foods that will help you maintain a consistent blood sugar level throughout the day. You won’t need a “pick-me-up” if you consistently eat well and keep you blood sugar at a constant, healthy level. Dried fruits, almonds and plain whole-milk yogurt are all excellent options.
