Fruits and Vegetables in The Work Place
Ideally, the office should be a place full of productivity. It is a place where ideas are bounced off one employee to another and plans are made. However, maintaining this level of functionality has been proven to be a difficult task. Catering in Manila offices can often be challenging because one must know how to incorporate food that helps with productivity, as well as balance both the quality of taste and nutritional value. One of the best alternatives to having a healthier and livelier workplace is by encouraging the consumption of fruits and vegetables in the workplace.
Fruits and Vegetables are low in calories
Fruits and vegetables are naturally low in calories. While regular diet and exercise is recommended, a way to promote healthy eating is by consuming fruits and vegetables instead of candy bars. Fruits and vegetables are recommended by nutritionists and dieticians because while they are filling, they are also light in calories. It is recommended to fill half of one’s plate with fruits and vegetables every meal.
Fiber is good for the body
Fruits and vegetables are high in fiber, also known as “roughage”, which is recommended by nutritionists and doctors. It is split into two types: soluble and insoluble. Both types are good for lowering cholesterol levels. The main difference between the types of fibers is that soluble fiber dissolves in water, while insoluble fiber does not dissolve as it passes through the digestive tract.
Fiber is good for the body, especially regular caffeine consumers, because it helps control acidity levels in the body as well as promotes healthy bowel movements. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your employees will use the restroom more often, but that the quality and regularity of their bowel movement will vastly improve as time goes by.
Fruits and vegetables are filled with vitamins and minerals
Fruits and vegetables are filled with all sorts of vitamins and good minerals. Daily consumption of greens and fruits not only promotes a low calorie high fiber diet, it also promotes the consumption of a lot of essentials vitamins and minerals which help keep the body healthy, glowing and alert. One of the many issues plaguing the average work day is the loss of productivity due to tiredness or feelings of weakness. This can easily be resolved by a change in routine and a healthier diet which can be received from fruits and vegetables.
Fruits and Vegetables make for a great snack
It sure is tempting to eat a candy bar or two at work but a healthier alternative are vegetables and fruits. Oranges, papayas, bananas, peaches, and cherries are among those that provide a more natural energy boost.
