Lunch Tips for the On the Go Health Nut

We get it. You want to be able to do it all… without sacrificing your health. From crushing it at work to being a stellar parent, friend, and neighbor, all while staying fit and healthy throughout your day. While your pantry and fridge are stocked with everything you need for organic, healthy meals, it can be hard to find equally nutritious options when you are on the go or at work. Yet, a singular drawback to your amazing health goals and values is that all this juggling means companies are often trying to sell you healthy-looking convenience products chock full of artificial ingredients, preservatives, and sugar. That’s why we do what we do at Orgain. We want to empower your inner health nut to accomplish all the things that matter most to you, pushing you forward with clean energy instead of slowing you down, fueling your best life.

Don’t skip lunch- instead, have protein rich snacks or meal replacements handy so you don’t have to even consider a drive through. With Orgain’s ready to drink plant-based protein shakes, which pack 21 grams of protein, you’ll have an organic, sugar free meal replacement that comes in smooth chocolate or vanilla bean.

Mental energy is sustained and productivity is improved when the body’s blood sugar is kept level by regularly eating healthy snacks and meals. When blood sugar levels plummet, research shows people are more likely to over eat, feel sluggish afterwards, and could even become irritable or experience brain fog. Try stashing Orgain Simple Bars in your car, purse, or gym bag for a high quality, protein and nutrient dense snack between appointments or post-workout. Some easy meal prep at the beginning of the week can also make the occasional desk lunch healthier.

Staying hydrated is also important when you are on the go so be sure to have water or coconut water with your shake, bar, or lunch. Water is essential to keeping your body’s cells and systems running optimally and is especially necessary for the body’s effective absorption of protein. Drinking water, coconut water, or herbal tea with a healthy lunch is a great way to make sure you are hydrated and can also help your body feel full and your mind refreshed.

Keep yourself from getting tuckered out in the middle of the day by being more mindful of your snacks and lunch foods. Dairy and wheat are common culprits, as well as sugar, and caffeine crashes, all of which can slow you down and wear you out. Having a plant-based lunch packed in a jar or an Orgain ready to drink shake or bar can keep your body energized and happy heading into the afternoon. We love supporting you in your health goals and habits, which is why we create excellent and nutritious options you can take with you, wherever your journey leads.
