Fuel Your Brain

June is Employee Wellbeing Month!

Healthy, nutritious meals are the key to an energizing and productive day.

When you fuel your day with nutritious, whole foods, your body and mind reap the benefits.  Swap out sugar and syrups in your coffee for cinnamon or cocoa powder.  Pack your lunch instead of eating out and ditch the packaged snacks for a piece of fruit or veggies instead.  These easy tricks will become healthy habits before you know it.

Try out some of these tips and tricks!

  • Know what you're going to eat for breakfast the next day and pack your lunch before going to bed.
  • Start your day with a glass of water.
  • Eat breakfast within an hour of waking up.
  • Aim for 5-6 small meals instead of 3 large meals to rev up your metabolism!
  • Make sure to combine lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables at each meal - breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • Make sure to combine proteins AND a whole grain, or fruit, or vegetable.
  • Have a sweet craving in the evening?  Try freezing Greek yogurt and add berries for a sweet/healthy snack.  Or, freeze a banana and blend with some milk for a tasty 2-ingredient "ice cream."
