Experts offer tips for staying fit in the workplace

Tonia Reinhard, a registered dietitian and director of the Coordinated Program in Dietetics at Wayne State University, offers some tips to up your midday meal game. Sandwiches: Look for healthy bread that has 4 grams of fiber or more, add a lean source of protein, like chicken breast lunch meat, and then leafy greens, like spinach or kale. Be conscious of what you are spreading on your sandwich; mayonnaise is packed with calories and fat, while mustard is very low in calories and fat. Smoothies: Smoothies can fit into a fast-paced lifestyle, where there is limited time to eat or prepare a lunch. Blending a smoothie is also a great way to incorporate healthy foods into your diet that you may not typically eat raw by themselves.
