When you go to work if you do not spend that extra 20 minutes planning your food for the day – there is a high chance that your healthy eating will be scuppered. When we are hungry or our blood sugar levels are low – that is when healthy eating goes out the window.
Pret, Starbucks, EAT, M&S and all the other morning shops all provide breakfast, snacks and lunches are full to the brim with crap: refined sugar, simple carbs, high saturated fat and all kind of chemicals that send your body loopy when all it wants is some fuel for the day!
Refined sugar and simple carbohydrates spike your blood sugar which means you have huge highs followed by crashes – which lead you to want to eat more as you feel tired, sluggish and cannot concentrate. Starting your day with a cake is not the path to healthy living.
You need to make sure you have a solid clean breakfast, a healthy snack at the ready for eleven-sies, a yummy lunch and an afternoon snack to make sure you don’t fall victim to the cakes, sweets and Christmas snacks…yes that season has begun!
Load your desk with nuts, fruit, hummus and veggies to make sure that if hunger strikes you are prepared!
