If you work in an office, chances are you reach for a snack from time to time to help you stave off hunger, avoid boredom or simply get you through the next task.
Sugary and salty snacks are usually the norm in an office environment. Although such snacks may give you the immediate boost you were looking for, in the end they only contribute to a complete lack of energy once the effects wear off.
Instead, consider fresh fruit as an excellent, healthy alternative. With Fruitful Office you could have fresh fruit baskets delivered straight to your place of work on a daily basis, packed full of vitamins and minerals to boost your energy levels.
Some fruits deliver more vitamins and minerals than others, while some fruits have a greater impact on memory and stress levels. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite fruits for office snacks:
Both raspberries and blueberries are fantastic fruits for snacking on, and are both low in sugar and high in fibre. Raspberries in particular are beautifully sweet and high in antioxidants. Blueberries also have a sterling reputation, and are known to help improve memory and cognitive function.
A handful of either fruit (or both) is an excellent office snack.
Long hailed as an excellent fruit, apples can keep you full for longer and are easily brought anywhere with you, requiring no preparation. They’re also very high in fibre, so they keep your digestive system healthy.
A fantastic source of Vitamin C – oranges boost your immune system, protect your eyesight and offer excellent levels of fibre, potassium, and calcium. Always go for actual oranges rather than just the juice, and it is high in sugar too.
Easy to eat, easy to carry, bananas are a firm favourite for a reason. High in potassium and glucose, they can keep your energy levels up for longer.
Like oranges, kiwis are packed full Vitamin-C but they are also an excellent source of fibre. Thanks to their vitamin levels, kiwis are a great option for those under pressure as they can alleviate feelings of stress, so reach for one the next time work starts to get a bit too much.
Normally, people do not think of avocados when they consider different fruits, but this is definitely a mistake! Avocados are full of healthy fat – essential for optimum brain functions.
No matter what kind of fruit you have in the office, you can be sure you won’t go wrong. Try introducing fresh fruit into your office environment today and see the difference it makes for yourself.
