Having lunch outside the home has now become an established habit, especially for work reasons. The lunch is one of the 5 fundamental meals of the day and we must pay close attention to which foods we choose for this break, in order to maintain the right energy, enjoy a satisfying and at the same time healthy break. It's possible? Absolutely yes. All it takes is a bit of imagination, and the right tools.
The importance of diet, for all jobs and activities
Eating healthy and leading a balanced diet, as we know, is very important for maintaining an excellent state of health; but it is one thing to know and one thing is to put it into practice, especially if you are out all day at work, and you are always in a hurry. The instinct is to take a quick and tasty lunch break, but the risk is to eat too quickly and above all foods that are good, but prepackaged, rich in calories and fat.
Eating healthy is not just a way to stay in shape , because what we assimilate also greatly affects the ability to concentrate and the energy that must then be used to get to the end of the day. A sandwich with lots of sauces, crispy chicken or succulent meat and a little salad, in short, gratifies the palate but weighs down the body, and you actually risk falling asleep on your desk!
Can the diet be greedy?
Then the question arises: to stay fit, full of energy and at the same time satisfied with the meal is it possible? Fortunately yes!
