HEALTHY EATING AT WORK EP3

We spend most of our waking hours at work, so it is no surprise that our workplace nutrition habits have major impact on our health. It has been said that proper workplace nutrition can help us get ahead! Bringing home-cooked food at work is more healthier than indulging on unhealthy junk food. It is the same with choosing balanced snacks and diet. Like fat-free yogurt, fresh veggies, and driking bottled water instead of coca cola, juices, Zero-calorie drinks and energy drinks. That is the reason why we choose to bring our food at work for us to eat together as healthy as we can.
