The more there is going on, the harder it is to stay concentrated. In modern work environment, one is constantly faced with an overload of things to keep in mind. A sad and empty gut is of no use for a "headful" of worries. Is that the real reason why one of the most famous time management techniques is called "Pomodoro" - Italian for "tomato", not a kitchen timer?!

If the abundance and popularity of this and similar methods proves anything, it is that incorporating breaks is productive and healthy. And what makes a better distraction than a delicious snack on the right side of the laptop?

When it comes to hacking your brain into everlasting savvy, mindful nutrition is your best friend. Naturally, it is ever so more important to ensure what we reach for is whole foods instead of processed items with questionable contents. Antioxidant- and Omega-3 fatty acids-rich foods are a go-to for maintaining long-term mental function and boosting concentration on the day-to-day.

Here is a list of some products that promote your focus levels:

  • dark chocolate
  • seeds 
  • dark berries
  • green tea or coffee
  • avocado
  • broccoli
  • beetroot
  • leafy greens
  • citrus fruits

Make-ahead at home or look for these in the ingredient lists of our snacks!

Sure, tomatoes along with other salad-friendly vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre, too, but they are far from a quick solution for a hungry brain, let alone "grab-and-go".
