Getting a handle on sugar cravings is something our healthy food offerings can help with
Is a sugary holiday like Halloween or Valentines Day dominating your brain to the point that you are unable to concentrate on your work? Maybe, in your office, every day is a sugary holiday. Sugar has been found to be a substance that releases opioids and dopamine in the same way other addictive substances do. Spooked off sugar yet? It may not be easy, but steering clear of office sweets could be your key to better productivity in your workspace.
Here are some tips on how to stop sugar cravings:
1. Drink a glass of water
Dehydration may cause cravings. If you’re feeling hungry, drink a glass of water first before rushing to the office sweets table! LeanBox offers a great Bai Blueberry drink for an even more enjoyable hydration strategy.
2. Eat a fruit
Check out the LeanBox machine for an apple, banana, avocado, grapefruit, or other seasonal options. Fruits may contain sugar, but they have dietary fiber to help slow digestion and keep you satiated. Much healthier than office sweets!
3. Eat more protein
Even the Organic Valley hard-boiled eggs or unsalted almonds we offer will do the trick. Protein is great for satiety, and will help with mental acuity far more than office candy will!
4. Don’t starve yourself
We provide the best snacks like healthy bars (BOBO’s coconut oat bar for example) or a healthy alternative to chips like Veggie Go’s Strawberry, Chia & Beets Bites.
Thousands of employees use LeanBox to consume healthy work lunches and healthy snacks that are readily available. With so many options, you may soon find that you and your co-workers don’t miss Halloween candy at all! There are plenty of healthy snack options, such as Biena Chickpea Snacks, Cheese Pleasers string cheese, veggie snacks, and fresh fruit.
