When you fail to PLAN, you go to the vending machine
One of my biggest obstacles to eating right and maintaining optimal energy is dealing with the hunger pangs that hit throughout the day,
The last thing you want to do is resort to a vending machine, which is why I keep a desk drawer stocked with healthy food options. I have a box of steel cut oatmeal, tear-open packed tuna, apples, raw sunflower seeds, raw pumkin seeds, almonds, plastic utensils,napkins or wipes, in the break room fridge I have greek yogurt sugar free of course, bottled water, fresh veggie and fruit smoothie.
Your "drawer" doesn't have to be in the office. It could be a diaper bag a back pack your glove compartment or in my case a work station. No matter how busy I am-and like many people, I find there are times when I can't leave my work station because of clients, emails, meetings- I know that i'll be okay because of my trusty drawer which I restock reguarly. It's not just for snacks; there are adequate supplies for breakfast or lunch if I need it.
Encourage your co-workers , employees, and boss to create their own MVP drawer it will raise productivity by keeping energy high and eliminating the legendary midaffternoon breaks to hunt for snacks. You'll set an example, thus elevating others. Most important, it will keep everyone on track with a healthy nutritional program.
