World Food Day – Top Snacks to Boost Creativity

Posted 10 months ago by BowlPhish

In honour of World Food Day, we have come up with a quick fire snack guide for when you need to boost your office brain power. To best access your creative mindset, simple fill your meeting room snack bowl with the following;

Nuts and Seeds

An amazing source of protein and omega 3, these little power pips will give you a steady flow of the creative juices without over-spiking your energy level. Perfect for when you need to get a solid session in.

Fresh fruit and vegetables

Eat the rainbow! Your brain can’t store glucose, meaning it requires a steady supply flow, but pounding it with sugary snacks won’t give you what you need. Fruits and veggies have slow release glucose to help your brain get a steady stream of fuel. Bananas in particular are full of potassium, vitamin C and other good stuff that helps your long term memory, creativity and learning. Why not try whipping up a smoothie for your team to enjoy and get some brainstorm buzz going.

Chocolate

No need to thank us, a study found that the amount of flavanoids in chocolate could boost short-term creativity. Stick to dark chocolate with a high cocoa percentage to make the most out of the creative experience. There are some fabulous flavoured dark chocolate bars out there if you want to excite your taste palate further!

And there you have it, three steps to a creative office snack bowl. If you want to go really wild, try making an Acai bowl with ALL of the above. They’re filled with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein and healthy fats – perfect to get that brain pumping.

Why not let us know what you like to keep in your office snack bowl to get your brains ticking? Happy World Food Day!
