How do you snack?

How do you snack?




When Popchips sent me some information on workers snacking, a few bells rung in my head. 



knackered + in need of food = snackered



I may not "work" as such but I am often snackered. And like others I often reach for the wrong food to snack on. Last year I reviewed the Jenny Craig diet, and afterwards I continued to be healthy by reducing my snacking and allowing myself the odd Popchip here and there. Recently it has all gone wrong though, so I will be using Popchips as my daily treat to help me get back on track.



Popchips found that snackered workers reach for the snack cupboard at least twice a day to keep them going. (11.30 and 3 being the most popular times.)
The survey of 2,000 British office workers, revealed that a lack of energy or need for a snack can lead to inappropriate office behaviour. Over a third said they ignore people when faced with an energy slump while twenty eight per cent of workers admitted they are likely to lash out at colleagues or even their boss. Half said they are likely to avoid doing work all together! Brits revealed that when tired or hungry they will natter to colleagues or procrastinate on social media and shopping sites rather than complete their work. 


So what can you do to improve your snacking habits? Here are some top tips for avoiding the snackered slump:

1. Be prepared. Have snacks ready for when energy slumps hit.

2. Look for snacks that won't blow your daily calorie intake. Popchips are less that 100 calories a packet!

3. Get moving. Keep your snacks away from your desk so you go for a walk to pick them up. A quick break from the computer can do wonders!

4. Keep healthy yummy snacks accessible. If you deny yourself your favourite snacks, you'll just need up craving for them and over-doing it. Try popcorn, a small packet of nuts and raisins, popchips, olives, a handful of almonds or frozen tubes of fromage-frais.


Fancy trying some Popchips yourself? Well Popchips have kindly given me a box full of 23 bags of 23g bags of Popchips (a mix of flavours)for one of my readers. All you need to do is fill out the rafflecopter below. Good Luck!
