Healthy Body, Healthy Business

5 October 2009

grapesDavid Cotriss from Small Business Trends has put together a list of healthy foods that business owners can use to snack on and eat to keep the mind and body in the tip top condition for running a business. And do not forget to do the gym thing at least 3 times a week. Need help on that click here.

  • Whole grain bread: Much better than white bread in providing energy and nutrients whether eaten by itself or used for toast or sandwiches.
  • Whole wheat pasta: A good source of complex carbohydrates to give your body an energy boost, and can be broken down easily.
  • Vegetable juice: Provides a quick energy boost and vegetable servings and the same time.
  • Fresh salads with vinaigrette: You may want to opt for fresh vegetables, and using vinaigrette for salads helps the body absorb protein and nutrients longer, which improves focus.
  • Bananas: Provide potassium, vitamin C, complex carbohydrates, and energy.
  • Avocados: Contain fats that add to heart and brain health, promoting blood flow. Great for sandwiches and salads.
  • Eggs: Contain protein and cholin needed for the brain to develop motor functions and memory.
  • Apples: Great source of vitamin C to help the blood vessels and overall health. A great snack or addition to salads and other foods.
  • Grapes: Inexpensive and healthy. A great source of vitamins A, C, B6 and folate. Also provide magnesium and iron.
  • Walnuts: Good source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, vitamin B6, and other nutrients for brain health.
  • Almonds: Also a good source of vitamins and protein.
  • Salmon: Often called “brain food” (as with other fish), a source of good fatty acids and protein for heart and brain health.
  • Green tea: Inexpensive source of caffeine, energy and a great mood booster.
  • Air-popped popcorn: It may not be the most filling, but a quick snack that’s healthier than potato chips.
  • Dark chocolate: It may seem counterintuitive, but when eaten in small amounts can help curb your appetite while helping digestion and improving your mood and focus.
