Food that boosts your mood - 20 - Corporate Employee Health & Wellness Blog

Feeling worn out and lazy from a heavy day at work ? Indulge in a sugar-free dark chocolate bar. Lacking the motivation to kick-start a morning ? How about some fresh orange juice ! The meetings just aren't getting over ? Take a quickie with some healthy soya chips. This time around we are sharing with you some quick food fixes that’ll instantly change your mood and bring back your mojo. Food is not just a source of nutrition but also joy ! Healthy eating is essential but at the same time must be made fun and exciting. While you keep a check on what you eat and maintain a healthy lifestyle it's always nice to give in to the joys of indulgences. So here are the top 5 foods that you need to know and maybe carry with you at work ! 1. Kurmura- Kurmura (puffy rice) is actually a light Indian snack that can be eaten at any time of day. Thanks to the array of antioxidants, minerals and nutrients, puffed rice is an incredible option for improving the immune system, fighting microbes and shielding the body against various infections like stomach infections, fever, common cold, sore throat, and other respiratory anomalies. 2. Granola - Granola is one of the best work environment snacks since it's easy to bring in, quick and easy to shop and lasts a long period of time. This is a basic healthy and balanced snack food that you might contend with at any time. It is packed with health and nutrition and well-balanced for your team. 3. Trail mix - Trail mix contains nuts and seeds that have lots of natural plant protein which is a fundamental building block of our bodies. Protein snacks keep you satiated, provide clean energy and improve your mood. 4. Sprouts Salad - Sprouts are a good source of fibre that binds extra fat and throws it out of the body. Besides this, when served as a salad or breakfast, sprouts are satiating thereby keeping you away from impulsively snacking on high-calorie foods. 5. Rice Cakes - Rice cakes are perfect for snacking and now come in a variety of flavours from cinnamon sugar to white cheddar. Plus, they tend to be pretty low in calories, making them ideal for munching. They pair great with those nut or seed butter packs too. Food is the way to the heart and when the heart is happy the mind feels happy too. Thus, we cannot undermine the impact of good food on our moods and productivity. Within the office premises, healthy snacks/meals can be curated according to the dietary requirements of your employees and vegan cookies, gluten-free pancakes, and low-carb mixtures can certainly be a great source of healthy and fun snacking. Amidst all the snacking, always remember to build a routine, never skip breakfast, and prep your lunches. Also, every once in a while, go for your favourite ice cream and remember that it should be guilt-free first and then gluten-free !
