Healthy Office Tip: Try a Salad Potluck

Office Tip: Salad PotluckThe most successful diets all have some kind of social support, whether it’s exercising with friends, eating healthy meals with your family, or going to meetings to share strategies. Staying healthy at work can be challenging, particularly when you’re feeling stressed out.

At our office here in the Brooklyn Creative League, we have a fun way to eat healthy together: “Salad Wednesdays.” For this potluck-style lunch, everyone brings in salad ingredients. The building management provides the greens, and the rest of the office brings in toppings, from garnishes of meat and cheese, heirloom tomatoes, to dressing and sauces.

You never know what you might learn; today I found how to make sauerkraut from a co-worker. Not only is the communal meal a great way to get in a serious serving of veggies, it’s also an opportunity to get to know each other and even network.

Do you have any healthy office traditions? Let us know!

When I was in graduate school, our class had people from many different cultures. We had Friday lunches together, and rotated responsibility for showing off an example of our culture's cuisine. Great fun--and while we weren't precisely focused on healthy entrees, in retrospect, a lot of it just naturally was.
