Surely you also have a small hiding place for your emergency food, when it gets too stressful at work. But instead of chocolate, gummy bears and Co. you should keep these seven healthy alternatives in it. Seven Snacks For The Desk That Will Relax You
As the to-do list grows and you run out of time, you, like many others, sometimes reach into a specific drawer – the one with paper tissues and cell phone charging cables, chocolate or some other treat of your choice.
If you have not already fed them up in a previous emergency situation.
Not an ideal strategy, we all know that – not least because sweets raise blood sugar levels, but only supply us with energy for a short time, before the inevitable crash and, therefore, most of the cravings follow.
What snacks should you have in case of emergency to manage your workload in a relaxed manner and face up to crises?
Ideally, you should snack on something that does not send the blood sugar level down a roller coaster ride, but keeps it at the same level and, of course, healthier than the – admittedly rather delicious – messes we too often resort to for convenience.
Precious proteins and healthy fats provide your brain with high-quality fuel. These foods are therefore the better snacks.
1. Coconut Meat
Coconuts contain medium-chain triglycerides, a fat that does not land on the hips, but is consumed directly as energy.
A rocket fuel, so to speak, and a yummy, especially for those who packs in the afternoon of sugar cravings.
2. Instant Miso Soup
Individual portions Miso powder or paste can be transformed into a fortifying drink in the small kitchen with hot water in no time, which is usually enriched with algae or fungi.
The fermented soy paste, to which especially Japanese swear, also balances the female hormone balance.
3. Dried Mangoes
If you really need something sweet, nibble dried mangoes that contain plenty of fiber and release the energy in stages.
The high carbohydrate content is relatively few calories, about 289 kcal per 100g.
The chewing calms and relaxes as well – but be sure to grab unsweetened dried mangoes .
Do you have time for a quick snack? When our brain screams for sugar, it can often be comforted with fat.
Give it a very high quality: A halved avocado , maybe with olive oil, pumpkin seeds, hummus, feta cheese … and you’re ready for the next round.
5. Rye Crispbread
Rye contains less gluten than wheat, and the particularly well-tolerated crispbread also uses fermented sourdough, which further reduces the effect of the gluten protein.
A bit of hummus, a few slices of beetroot or avocado and as protein kick a boiled egg – choose a healthy surface and recharge your batteries.
6. Dark Chocolate
Sometimes it just has to be chocolate – but then please dark ones. 40 grams per day should help to cope better with stress .
Grab a variety with at least 70 percent cocoa content. The valuable plant substances do the heart, brain and blood circulation well. And even with dark chocolate, most of them are already enough.
7. Energy Balls Of Dates And Nuts
Energy balls can be easily prepared at home to pamper you and maybe your colleagues.
Just nuts (cashew and Brazil nuts are particularly creamy) and the same amount of dates triturate in a blender so that they are to a tough dough from which you roll the balls.
For example , you can add cinnamon , grated coconut, or peanut butter to achieve other flavors.
Cool well and consume quickly – but that should not be a problem.
Nuts, among other things, strengthen the brain, while dates support the good bacteria in the intestinal flora, which are also important for stress management.
