Workday Nutrition: Your Ultimate Cheat Sheet

Mary Mohr

26 August 2020

Does your workday run on coffee, candy, and crispy treats? Between endless emails, meetings and tasks it can be hard to find time to focus on nutrition throughout your busy day. A crucial component of performing at your peak is finding the right balance of nutrient-rich foods to fuel your mind and body. If you find yourself downing cup after cup of coffee or giving in to those strong sugar cravings during your workday, maybe it's time for a nutrition shift.

Read on for some healthy tricks and tips to fuel your most productive workday.

Eat Breakfast

Avoiding a mid-morning crash starts with eating a filling breakfast that will keep you energized throughout your busy morning. Skipping nutrition first thing sets you up for a hungry and distracted day full of low energy, sugar cravings and overeating.

Some great options for a filling breakfast are a hearty bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh (or frozen) fruit, scrambled egg whites with spinach and turkey sausage, or a quick smoothie made with your favorite protein powder. If you'd like, you can even keep some overnight oats in our cabinet and make some to leave in our fridge for your breakfast the next day!

Keep Snacks Handy (or visit our always-stocked vending machine!)

Waiting too long to eat between meals can be detrimental to your health. When your blood sugar crashes, it can lead to overeating at meal times. Eating small amounts throughout the day can be a really great way to keep your metabolism firing away. 

Although most vending machines found in office spaces can be notorious for housing unhealthy, sugary and salty options, the vending machine at The Hive Coworking hosts a variety of healthy snack and drink choices. We have protein bars, veggie crisps, nuts and also offer La Croix, Vitamin Water, Bai Antioxidant and Propel water. And don't worry - we have some not-so-healthy options for you when the mood hits ; )

Do you find it a struggle to balance work and proper nutrition? Between endless emails, meetings and tasks it can be hard to find time for self-care throughout your busy day.

Detach From Your Desk for Lunch

You deserve a lunch break! Everyone does. Moving your body and giving your eyes a break from your screen is crucial for your overall health and well-being during the workday. The workday lunch break is a sacred time to nourish your body and take a reset so you can conquer the rest of your busy day. 

Lunchtime is a great time to check out The Hive's kitchen. We have a full sized fridge and fully functioning microwave for all of your bagged lunch needs. Or if you are down for a short walk, The Real Italian Deli is just a minute's walk from the office. They offer delicious sandwiches, salads and various sweet treats to-go. It's a tried and true Hive favorite. 


Hydration is so important for optimal brain and body function. Especially since The Hive is located in a desert region, staying hydrated throughout the day is even more critical.

The Hive has a refrigerated water cooler filled to the brim with fresh and delicious hydrating water. And if for some reason the water cooler is out - we always keep bottled water handy in the fridge.

Are you ready to tackle a day of coworking at The Hive now that you have all of the best nutrition tips? Come join us.

We can't wait to meet you!
