Importance of a Healthy Diet and Employee Performance

Get healthy while you work with fruit at your desk

Did you know that one half of all deaths in the U.S. are from diabetes and heart disease? These chronic health conditions have a lot to do with our diet! The main problem is that most Americans do not get enough nutrients from the food they eat. They are not getting enough fruits, veggies, nuts/seeds, whole grains, healthy oils and fish. Americans are consuming huge amounts of salt. High Salt consumption accounts for almost 10% of heart related deaths. Americans also consume too much processed meats and sugary drinks. This accounts for another 6-9% of deaths from stroke, heart disease and diabetes.

Importance of a Healthy Diet and Employee Performance:

The message here is eat more of the good stuff and less of the bad foods and you will be a lot healthier! A healthy diet consists of 2 cups of cooked veggies and 3 servings of fruit per day. An example of 3 servings of fruit would be an apple, orange and a banana per day.

Having fruit-delivered to your workplace is one way to boost your fruit intake. Fruit at work is great for your waistline, your mood and energy level. Eating fruit during the work day prevents you from snacking on empty calories from junk food. Fruit is loaded with fiber and it keeps you feeling full longer. You don’t experience the “crash” associated with energy drinks and processed snacks. Sugar from fruit is natural and it gets absorbed into your bloodstream more slowly. Eating fruit is a healthy way to get energy from natural vitamins and minerals.
Corporate Fruit Delivery is also a cost effective way to combat “absenteeism” and to help lower insurance costs. Healthier, leaner employees miss less workdays. Healthy employees also have higher concentration levels and are more productive. Fruit in the office is one step Management can make to improve the overall health of their employees. Fruit Delivery is convenient and it is very affordable. Ask your Manager to get fruit delivered to your office today!

Office Snacking and Fruit Delivery in the Workplace

Snacking can be good or bad for our health and our weight.  Everyone needs to snack between meals to keep energy levels high.  And to keep their metabolism working at an optimal level.  Snacking at work is especially challenging and the choices are the vending machine in the break room.   Which is usually filled with

processed snacks or sugary drinks.  They are all bad news for our health and waistlines.  On average, women consume 400 calories per day from their snacks. while men consume more than 600 calories per day from snacks.  American employees gain an average of 1-2 pounds per year.  Snacking is a huge contributor to this weight gain!

Choosing a healthy snack option at work can mean the difference between feeling more alert, motivated and energized. It can lead to fatigue and weight gain.  With the skyrocketing costs of health care and the rise of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure/cholesterol and obesity, companies are trying to find ways to provide a healthier work environment to include a way to incorporate healthier snacking options.  The fact is, employees are going to get hungry and snack on whatever is available to them. It’s something provided to them at no charge and they are much more apt to choose to snack on at the company.  Rather than spend their $1.50 on a bag of chips or candy.

Company-provided fresh fruit at work is a growing choice across the United States.  By providing fruit at work, employees can improve their health and cut calories at the same time.  Fruit at work is also a huge motivator and it’s great way for companies to help their employees!  After all, healthier employees are happier and more productive.  By investing in fruit, management is investing in their most valuable asset, their employees!

years ago.  But he knew that keeping the colon clean was critical to good health.  In fact, today more than 50 million Americans suffer from bowel issues.  Some cause annoying symptoms such as headaches or acne but are not serious, while others can make you ill such as colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and  Constipation. The truth is that the average person can have 5-20 pounds of waste material in their colon.  For up to 70 hours when someone with a healthy digestive system should process the food in less than 24 hours.  A lot of these digestive problems are due to poor diets that lack natural fibers and enzymes.  Another problem is too much refined sugar in the average diet.

The importance of a cleansed colon is paramount for optimal health!  Here is a 4 ingredient drink that has vitamins, fiber and nutrients. This can help your body drop toxins and help heal your colon.

What You Need:  

1 apple

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp flax seeds

1 tbsp honey 

1 cup of filtered water

Blend all ingredients together and wait until chia seeds start to expand.  Drink on an empty stomach.

Apples have both insoluble and soluble fiber which help promote healthy bowel movement.  Chia seeds have fiber, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins. This promotes heart health and healthy digestion.  Flax seeds have fiber, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and promote intestinal nutrient absorption.  Flax seeds also help prevent colon cancer.  Honey not only makes the drink sweet tasting but it is an antibacterial and antiviral. It has antiseptic properties which protect against colon cancer.

Fruit Fresh Delivery has been harvesting clients in South Florida

updated 11-25-2016

Fruit Fresh Delivery has been harvesting a healthy client list in South Florida. The Delray Beach based brand is ready to open its secondb2ap3_thumbnail_Fruit_Delivery_sout_Florida.png U.S. location within the next six months.  said co-founder Sharon Baker.

The company delivers boxes of fruit and other healthy snacks to offices.  Servicing hundreds of workers across the tri-county area. Including Broad and Cassel law firm, Booking.com, Dell and most recently, Intel’s office in Miami.  Baker told the South Florida Business Journal.

Fruit Fresh Delivery also mails its boxes to offices in the Orlando and Tampa areas, and sometimes as far as Atlanta. Next, the company is planning to plant its seeds in Chicago.
Corporate wellness is just starting to catch on in the Midwest and East Coast.  Companies in regions like the West Coast and Europe have provided healthy snacks for their employees for years.  “For some reason, the Chicago area is on fire for wellness and we turn down business from there on a weekly basis,” Baker said. “We can also service New York and hit a lot of states from Chicago.”

“Companies are starting to get it,” said Baker, noting that unhealthy workers cost more to employ than healthy workers. “Most of Americans are overweight or obese, putting an incredible strain on companies and their health care costs.”

Co Founder Randy Schneider got the idea for their venture from his own experiences working in a corporate office.  In most cases there was “nothing but junk food to snack on.”

Schneider and Baker launched Fruit Fresh Delivery in 2011 and have four employees.

Ways to Keep Fresh Produce Fresh

Produce fresh longer
Keep produce fresh longer

Fresh Produce is expensive and it’s perishable so finding ways to keep it fresher longer is a cool thing.  Here are some great tips how to prevent our fruits and veggies from ending up in the trash!really great tips how to

1.  Bananas that ripen too fast and get soft:

To prevent the bananas from ripening too fast, just wrap the stems tightly with plastic wrap.  This reduces the amount of ethylene emitted from the fruit.  This gas causes other fruits and veggies from ripening too fast. Try to keep bananas separated from other fruits and veggies.

2.  Soft Celery:

To keep celery from getting rubbery, wash and dry the stalks and then wrap them tightly in aluminum foil.  This will keep celery fresh for a few weeks.

3.  Limp Lettuce:

Line the crisper drawer with paper towels.  The paper towels will absorb excess moisture and keep produce crunchier!

4.  Moldy Berries:

Rinse the berries in a vinegar and water bath (one part vinegar to three parts water).  Then rinse again with water to get rid of the vinegar taste.  The vinegar kills bacteria which helps prevent mold growth.

5.  Potatoes Sprouting:

Throw an apple in bag  with potatoes.

6.  Mushrooms that get Slimy:

To keep mushrooms fresh, put them in a paper bag. D0 not plastic which keeps the moisture in and causes mushrooms to mildew.

If you can keep the moisture, then you’ll keep your greens longer.

When it comes to Bananas, Place plastic wrap around the crown of your banana.  Bunch to keep them lasting longer. Side note: If you want them to ripen super fast, place them in a closed plastic bag.

Since they emit so much Ethylene gas, they’ll ripen quickly when the gas is trapped by the bag.

Keep them in a bowl with a paper towel, and cover with plastic wrap. The paper towel will absorb the excess moisture.

When it comes to chopped up salad greens, your worst enemy is moisture.
