Prioritizing Your Nutrition While Working From Home: Austin Trahern Shares Simple Hacks

Austin Trahern From Denver, Colorado, Explains Nutrition While Working From home

Take Supplements First Thing in the Morning

Many people want to commit to taking supplements at some point within the day, but eventually forget because of a busy schedule. To maximize the digestion of supplements, it is best to take them in the morning with or without a meal, depending on the specifications.

  • Stay consistent: If you are taking supplements for a nutrition deficiency or a health condition, consistency is your ally when it comes to better healing.
  • Better absorption: During midday, you may have eaten or drank some food already. There is a chance that if you drink supplements after consumption of large amounts of food, not all its contents can be processed properly.
  • Enhanced performance: Some supplements are taken for their immediate effects. Whether you take some for focus, energy, or other enhancements, you will most likely benefit from taking it before your work day.

Have a Stash of Easy and Healthy Breakfasts

It’s hard to focus when you’re hungry and low on energy in the morning. Unless you’re doing the habit of intermittent fasting, you should have a stash of easy to consume healthy breakfasts.

  • Greek yogurt and berries: Greek yogurt is packed with protein and berries are relatively low on sugar but high in antioxidants. This combination is a perfect energy booster in the morning.
  • Hard boiled eggs, whole wheat toast, and spinach: You can make an open-faced sandwich with these three items and you can prepare it beforehand. Adding a light sandwich spread or grated cheese also makes it a tasty meal.
  • Overnight oats: Oats are never boring if you try to mix in the right toppings. Add cinnamon, milk, and oats in a jar, and in the morning add some fruit or nuts and you have an instant breakfast.

Smoothies to Get Your Greens

Austin Trahern From Denver, Colorado, Suggests Smoothies
  • Mango, banana, kale: Try mixing mango, banana, kale, along with almond milk for a sweet and hearty smoothie treat. You can also turn this into a smoothie bowl by adding berries or nut seeds on top.
  • Strawberry, blueberry, spinach: This mixed berry treat feels light and refreshing. You can also add lemon juice for extra zest, or milk for a creamier texture.
  • Pineapple, mango, spinach: This combination has a tropical taste, similar to a pina colada. You can also add milk if you want a creamier smoothie, or simply use the original ingredients for a lighter taste.

Make Hydration Easy

When you’re juggling a ton of back-to-back virtual meetings, it can be hard to even stand up and get a glass of water. Make sure you are staying hydrated by having an insulated flask or jug of water by your desk.

Nutrition as a Work-At-Home Professional: Planning is Key

The main takeaway with all these hacks is planning ahead and finding ways to sneak in your nutritional priorities without making drastic changes. Trahern believes that small, easy-to-apply changes lead to profound results, and this can be applied both in work, business, or overall wellness.
