Best snacks for a 15 minute break

  • snacks

 

Feeling sluggish at work? Use your 15-minute break to get that energy up and finish the day strong! Try to stay away from the vending machine and pack these healthier options instead. 

Protein

Protein is best for long-term hunger prevention, so you won't need another snack until dinner. They also don't cause blood sugar spikes and crashes like carbs. Try:

Protein bar (but check labels for sugar content)

Nuts and/or seeds

Jerky (now available in lots of options, thanks to the Paleo Diet movement)

String cheese

 

Carbs

Carbs deliver a fast fix of mental or physical energy. Whether you crave sweet or salt, there's a high carb snack for you:

Dried fruit (raisins, banana chips, etc.)

Fresh fruit/veggies that have long shelf-life (apples, pears, oranges, carrots)

Dark chocolate bar with at least 60% cacao (less fat, more antioxidants)

Rice cakes

Veggie chips

Pretzels (also low in calories)

 

Fiber

High fiber foods also keep you feeling full as well as your digestive system running smoothly.

Popcorn

Whole grain cereal packets

Whole grain crackers

Fiber cookies

 

Combos

Get the benefits of each type of snack and cancel out the negatives by eating them together. For example:

Trail mix (dried fruit for carbs, nuts for protein)

Veggies (carb) with cheese (protein)

Whole grain crackers (carb, fiber) with peanut butter (protein)

How to Come Out (or Not) at Work
For LGBT+ individuals, revealing their true identity to co-workers, supervisors and clients comes with both risks and rewards. Your decision will depend on many factors — in both your own situation and the work environment — so there's no one right answer for everybody. However, as a LGBT-owned business, we'd like to share our insights and tips on making the process more successful.   Pros and Cons Workers who feel free to be their authentic selves at work report that they feel happier and more engaged. And studies show that they are more productive, which should please employers.   On the other side of the coin, many LGBT+ people are still in the closet due to fears of damage to their careers and workplace relationships. In a Harvard Business Review survey, nearly half (46%) of American respondents said they are not out to everyone at work.   Assess Your Workplace Atmosphere Get answers to these questions to help you decide whether it's a good idea to come out, or if...

Transgender in the Workplace: Tips for Employees and Employers
As an LGBT-owned business, Integrity is wholeheartedly dedicated to providing a diverse and fair working environment for all individuals. We've demonstrated over and over again that the keys to success for employer and employee alike are character, values and professional skills — not statistics on a piece of paper like gender or ethnicity.   In this post, we'll share our top tips for the transgender individual at work. While there is a trend towards greater acceptance of transgender rights in our society (and in the law courts), we still sadly see cases of harassment, prevention of use of the correct restroom, refusal to change names on employer documentation, denial of coverage for medically necessary procedures, etc.   The consequences of these actions may be more far-reaching than damages to one person. Companies who get a reputation for hostility to LGBT workers will alienate not just this group from their talent hiring options, but also the much larger pool of people who...

How to Find an LGBT-Friendly Employer
  The fight for LGBT employment rights has come a long way, thanks to support from the U.S. courts and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), among others. But we still have a ways to go before every company provides a diverse and welcoming workplace for all, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation.   Here's how to recognize those employers who provide fair treatment to LGBT (and all other minority) individuals, before you decide to submit a job application.   Check Out Their Public Brand. Companies who are proud of their inclusive principles will let everyone know about it in mission and value statements, marketing campaigns, etc. Places to look include: Company website Company's social media pages (e.g. LinkedIn, FaceBook) Trade publications and forums LGBT Chamber of Commerce websites Employer rating websites such as GlassDoor Job postings — should include mention of being an equal opportunity employer   Research Their Track...
