3472371310_402a7f0cc5_o copyIt’s 11:30 am. You’re at office and you are feeling hungry. You need something quick and convenient. Perhaps you’re late for work and you haven’t had breakfast. You probably lead a very busy life, and can’t always sit down to enjoy a healthy and relaxing meal. And for a variety of reasons, you may be inclined to buy and eat one of the many unhealthy snacks on the market. 

Or it’s mid-afternoon, your energy is flagging and you need a fast pick-me-up. You feedeg copyl drained and you reach for a “pick-me-up” for some re-found energy. Here you want to substitute a healthy bar for an unhealthy snack. Sounds smart? 

Well, if you think this is your story everyday, then let me tell you that you are not alone since this is essentially the same story for all office goers. Most people feel like eating something every 3 – 4 hours to avoid becoming too hungry. 

Now, the problem is with so much of work pressure and less time, it can be hard to determine what to eat during the long gaps between the meals. What’s more, there are so many snacks available in the market that you get confused which one to choose. There are our traditional snacks like samosa, kachori, western snacks like wafer, french fries and so healthy foods like chocolates, etc. Also, there is variety of bars available to kill the hunger.

You can’t carry a banana in your pocket all the time. You have to switch to something handy like bars. But, the marketing of these bars is very intentional and very slick. In fact, the industry spends millions of fund to advertise these bars every year. Many of these bars are so loaded with less-than-optimal fats and loads of sugar that they aren’t any better than eating a candy bar.

SNACKS ARE SUPPLEMENTS, NOT SUBSTITUTE

In many cases, the eating habits of such professionals lead to changes that make them consume not so healthy foods like chocolates or local snacks like french fries, samosas, etc.

Higher in fat, and calories v/s healthy snacking options like fruits – such snacks when consumed everyday may lead to overweight & obesity, the mother of all chronic illnesses and loads of health complications in the long run. I wish I could get a readymade healthy solution. Are there any healthy options?

Fruits are always the best option. But we can’t carry fruits all the time. You can keep a banana in you pocket. Now, in this situation, healthier snacks like cereal bars are the best option which also provides natural fibres. Such bars are good fillers and are lower in fat v/s commonly eaten fried snacks. To satisfy hunger pangs and reduce the temptation to over eat, a leading cause of obesity, healthier options like fruits, cereal nutrition bars may be some of the options to be consumed between the two meals.

Enjoy snacking!!!
