As more people work from home due to the Coronavirus outbreak, keeping healthy may become harder for those that were used to being farther away from their tasty pantry treats. Weight Watchers head of Nutrition and Wellness, Jaclyn London, RD, offers some tips.
London suggests that eating at the same time you normally would while in the office rather than craving foods out of boredom. Making snacks ahead of time like a healthy fruit bowl or filling greek yogurt will also make it easier for you to make the right choice. If you have a problem with stress eating, London says moving your workstation and taking breaks can help you to avoid eating when you're overwhelmed.
Stress eating isn’t a sign of failure and won’t make or break you, so be kind to yourself if you do eat the cake. Check out below for some healthy snack ideas you can create at home!
Also, avoid going to the grocery store often during this time. Health officials suggest only going when necessary, and make sure to wipe down anything you touch during your trip to avoid getting sick!
