Choosing the right snacks for the office is no small task. First of all, you’ll need to find treats that mostly everyone likes and can enjoy (taking allergens and dietary restrictions into consideration). Then you’ll need to think about logistics. Where can you store these snacks? Will they make a mess? How will they make your team feel - you don’t want anything that’ll leave them feeling sluggish and weighed down!
Our recommendation? Protein.
Here are a few reasons why you should add high-protein snacks to the break room and some inspiration for which healthy office snacks also taste great.
Why High Protein Snacks are Best For Work
Protein is good for you in more ways than one. Here are some benefits of eating more protein snacks:
Food is energy, but not all snacks are created equal. Protein is actually thebest snack for long-lasting stamina because it helps form the building blocks for muscle and tissue (hence why athletes eat meals high in protein after a workout).
Healthy protein snacks can help your employees power through the day by giving them the long-lasting energy they need.
Protein also keeps you feeling full longer. Compared to other macronutrients like fat and carbohydrates, protein is by far the best at reducing appetite and hunger levels. This is because proteinreduces levels of the hunger hormone (ghrelin) and also boosts the levels of peptide YY that make you feel full.
Offering high-protein office snacks can actually decrease your team’s appetite and lead to less snacking overall during the workday and increased productivity.
Protein is also known to boost your body’s metabolism for a short while after eating it. It’s no secret that office work isn’t the most active, but eating protein is a great way to promote digestion and burn more calories around the workplace.
If you haven’t guessed by now, protein is incredibly beneficial for your health. This also extends to your bones. Multiple studies have found that protein has major benefits for bone health. More specifically, research has found that individuals who eat more protein are able to maintain their bone mass better as they age.
Introducing high-protein office snacks can be improving your employee’s health in the long term without them even realizing it.
Lower Blood Pressure
Finally, we can’t end the list without mentioning the positive effects protein snacks can have on blood pressure. Multiple studies have found that higher protein intake can help lower blood pressure, which also happens to be a major cause of heart attacks and strokes. This is yet another example of how adding high-protein snacks to the office can benefit your team’s overall physical health.
