Wondering what to eat for lunch at work today? If you are like many others working in an office environment, you are grabbing something quick and easy, but not necessarily healthy, and probably not "brain food" to help you through the rest of your day.  Or perhaps you are a "desk diner," nibbling on convenience snacks through the day at your computer, or munching a quick lunch on-the-go in between meetings. 

Lunch choices at the office define what happens in the afternoon, including how you feel and think, and your productivity throughout the second half of the day.  Lunch is critical to afternoon success, and a thoughtfully selected, nutrient-dense lunch can be the "maker" or "breaker" of your work day, day in and day out. 

Here are a few reasons to lunch smart and healthy: 

Increase Productivity

Your brain needs healthy fuel to keep it running efficiently through the day. Higher productivity & efficiency leads to higher success! Eat healthy, increase focus and efficiency, achieve your goals, improve your head space and your work life with healthy lunch habits. 

Did you know? Studies show that an unhealthy diet puts you at 66% increased risk of productivity loss. Feed your body "brain food" to do your best at work, at any time of the day. 

Enhance Mood

Food impacts all aspects of your health, including your brain's health, and its ability to regulate your mood. Maintaining a healthy gut, keeping a stable blood sugar level, and getting proper nutrition on a daily basis will help you feel better, and happier, most days. This includes helping you deal with stress, too!

Eating nuts, seeds, and other foods rich in omega-3 fats have been associated with improving mood, lowering risk of depression, and helping with the ability to deal with stress by moderating the body’s level of cortisol.

Regulate your physical health

Maintaining a healthy waistline often makes us feel better and more confident as we head into the work place, but more importantly, reducing body weight, even by 5-10%, can lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol, and decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes.

Keeping a healthy weight also improves energy levels, sleep quality, and over-all quality of life as more activities are available and enjoyable. Eating a nutrient dense diet is key to maintaining healthy body weight. 

Healthy food doesn't have to be boring! Liven up your work day with "healthy bowls of happy" from della test kitchen. Eat well, feed your brain and your body with nutrient dense food, and increase your success in work... and in life.
