When you’re attempting to live a healthier lifestyle, it may be tough to understand why you’d like to have lunch outside of the house. There is so much competition that it’s simple to be swayed by the completely loaded and unhealthy choices available. Most packed lunch boxes nowadays, like mine at kindergarten, are filled with bags of crisps, chocolate bars, and fizzy drinks.
Packing healthy snacks in your lunchbox or work drawer can help you stay on track and avoid foods that may cause you to stray away. Personally, I don’t think there’s something wrong about having a chocolate bar for lunch as part of a healthy lifestyle, but I believe the problem arises when it becomes a routine.
Doing some healthier lunchtime switches will help you find the balance, leaving you feeling fantastic and allowing you to focus more at work.
Holland & Barrett also introduced the Healthy Lunch Campaign, which encourages people to create better lunchbox replacements for a more balanced lunch. I’m also a huge fan of H&B and shop there on a daily basis for my one-stop high-street health food store. I went to their website’s food and drink segment to get some ideas for healthier lunch box swaps.
As previously said, there is nothing wrong with consuming crisps and enjoying fizzy drinks as part of a safe and balanced lifestyle; but, when they become a normal part of the “diet,” they can become problematic for certain people.
Another cause for concern is the secret sugar and salt in foods such as cereal bars, which many citizens believe to be the better alternative. Swapping desserts for dried fruit and nuts is a healthier substitute that also offers you a sugar rush while still providing some nutritious benefit to your body… a bonus
What’s in your lunchbox these days? If you have some good lunchbox swaps that you swear by?
