If you are one of those people like me that like to drink and eat while working in front of the computer. You can easily prepare your drinks and snacks for your busy time. Here are some tips and ideas that can have you covered when you are in the need to eat something either sweet, sour or salty.

–> Prepare one liter of water with your favorite citrus and herbs. It could be slices of lemon, oranges with mint or your favorite tasty berries. 

–>Prepare your favorite nuts and seed and season them with your favorite spice; Mexican, Italian, Indian taste, you name it.

–> Prepare sliced cucumbers and season them your taste. I live it with a bit of salt and lemon juice.

–> Prepare a pot of green tea cold or warm, depending on the season.

–> Prepare pop corn sweet or salty here is a recipe from juyogi.

–> Prepare in minutes cacao truffles to take to the office.

–> Choose grilled food like steak, fish or seafood when you go the the restaurant, or squash if you are vegetarian/vegan.

I am always on the go and even though I like to eat outside I try to balance between my body needs and my mind and hormone needs. The tastes for me are very important. So I would avoid a steak with a tortilla or bread because I just love the taste of the grilled steak but I will add a red wine to it, no fried potatoes on the side or rice, salad, lettuce instead if I want to go on the road with low carb diet.
