Increasing Productivity with Lunch – TOP FIVE SUPERFOOD IDEAS
Switch chicken for salmon, coffee for green tea and bacon for eggs and you may be onto a winner for best meal for productivity.
Yes, it is that time of year where we are watching what we eat, drink and spend. It is the time of year where we are trying to increase productivity with working more, relaxing less. Did you know that there are foods that also increase productivity?
I did not either, but the chefs at KUDOS Delivered are here to tell all and share their food secrets to do their bit for the work place, so if you have been feeling a little more worn down from the Christmas party season, why not consider adding these superfoods to your diet plan and see how you feel after a month?
It is common knowledge now that fatty fishes such as salmon have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids that help with memory, fight depression and it is a food that increases productivity. After all, what better way to increase productivity with a quick-witted personality that remembers everything?
According to healthline.com, in one study of people aged 65 and older, consuming fatty fish at least twice a week was linked to a 13% slower decline in age-related memory issues than consuming fatty fish less than once a week. I don’t know about you but I would like to remember my first kiss with my partner at 70 years old, so I am definitely starting this salmon switch as soon as possible.
Remember when I said you need to have a great memory to increase productivity? Berries are a great food that increases productivity because of its high antioxidant qualities that boost your cognitive function.
Barbara Shukitt-Hale, Ph.D., and Marshall G. Miller point out that longer lifespans are raising concerns about the human toll and health care costs of treating Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of mental decline. They explain that recent research increasingly shows that eating berry fruits can benefit the ageing brain by changing the way neurons in the brain communicate and protecting cells from harm.
So we should all swap our pastries for berries with granola and yoghurt and then remember key lines from Friends.
Did you know that green tea provides your body with caffeine but without the jittery coffee feeling you receive? This is amazing for that boost of energy and it also has fat-burning qualities.
Caffeine has been intensively studied before and consistently leads to improvements in various aspects of brain function, including improved mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory.
So not only does green tea provide you with more energy but it also makes your brain work smarter.
So when you are in your meeting and teas and coffee are provided (which we can provide by the way) why not use our herbal green tea instead and pay attention to the boss a little better.
Nuts are a brilliant source for protein and natural fat which your body needs to be healthy. They also contain the crucial antioxidant, vitamin E, and are amino rich. This makes you productive, and nuts are high in fibre and are delicious as a snack. Energy boosting snacks are important for the workplace and it could be high in trend to swap crisps for mixed nuts. Why not include in your working lunch nuts instead of crisps and have that swap to encourage productivity?
If you are a little wary ordering the office nuts for a snack, why not swap them for bananas? Bananas are the best for energy-inducing ingredients. One single banana holds the daily amount of glucose you are recommended to have, so it is a much healthier way of filling-up with a snack with that glucose quality. I understand that chocolate cake is hard to resist but to be more productive in the day, have that banana.
So there you have it, the top five foods that increase productivity. As society becomes more health conscious, we have integrated these superfoods into our packages, so why not call today on 02073343938 and ask what we would recommend.
