Are you working from home? or staying in for the next couple weeks? There is a few things that you can do to curb over-eating or mindless snacking during the day while at home.
I know, a little while ago we were sitting at our desks, wishing it was home time so we could rush home, eat some yummy dinner and relax, but now - staying home is a little more challenging then I had expected! I'm a serial snacker, so I needed to put some structure into my day to stop me from overeating.
My number one tip is....
MAINTAIN REGULAR YOUR EATING SCHEDULE!
Simple, right? Maintaining your eating schedule as closely as you would at work is your best bet to curb snacking! For example, the below is how I would typically eat at work, so I try to stick to these times for eating as much as possible.
BREAKFAST - 7AM
SNACK - 10AM
LUNCH - 1PM
SNACK - 3:30PM
DINNER - 6:30PM
Having these times set in place, you'll be less likely to graze on additional foods across the day. If you don't maintain regular eating, you are more likely to skip meals, overeat at the next meal or reach for choices that you typically wouldn't.
There are more ways to curb over eating and we've talked through them in #BARE essentials!
If you're a BARE member, we have created an additional 40 recipe eBook that is an extension of your BARE Guide's. BARE Essentials is an additional purchase of $15 AUD for BARE Guide members only & utilises minimal & staple ingredients ONLY.. So YOU can stay healthy while at home, during this time.
I hope this helps :)
Happy cooking & stay safe everyone!
