Can't seem to make it
through the day without popping an office pastry in your mouth? Time for some
tips to keep a healthy diet on track.
personality and New York Times bestselling author of Naturally Thin and The
Skinnygirl Dish, Bethenny Frankel, dishes up advice for combating
the office snack trap in 5 Tips to Keep Office Snacking From Derailing Your Diet. Tips include filling up with warm drinks: delicious teas or diet coffee drinks
score high on taste but low on calories. Or pack your own healthy snacks such
as nuts or fruit to stave off the midday slump that too often leads to vending
machines full of junk.
Refueling with small,
healthy snacks throughout the day keeps the body humming and prevents fatigue.
So stock up on healthy, portable snacks for office munching: hummus and mini
pitas, whole-wheat crackers and nut butters or yogurt topped with granola or
fresh berries are all smart choices. Read 8 Healthy
Office Snacks from
CookingLight.com for other ideas. And 11
Energy-Boosting Snacks suggests thinking
outside the snack-box for quick energy hits: high-fiber cereals and half a
turkey sandwich make terrific snacks at any time of the day.
Make time in your
schedule for healthy eating habits. Try not to wolf down lunch on the run;
harried schedules often result in poor food choices. Make time for healthy lunches
such as salads, red pepper slices and hummus or sandwiches stuffed with veggies
rather than fatty, high-sodium meats. Need inspiration? The New York Times has a wonderful blog of sandwiches ideas as well as packing tips
to ensure maximum freshness at your desk.

I do not understand how people can constantly be so obtuse.
There is no kindness in people currently. People are
increasingly mean-spirited and we cannot solve problems of any type until we can work
together. We can disagree, certainly, but we still are requiredto make decisions and
get the job done.
I was thinking if anyone had many recipes for some low-fat, low-carb and also perhaps low-calorie desserts?
? Thanks for any kind of recipes!!!. Thanks everybody!
It's going to be ending of mine day, however before end I am reading this enormous piece of writing to improve my know-how.
