Strategies for Eating Well on the Job
Maintaining a balanced diet while juggling work and cancer is often key for keeping up energy levels, managing symptoms at work and feeling better overall. However, between treatment-related challenges (such as restricted diets, medication schedules, etc.) and workplace challenges (such as limited time, stress and unreliable storage options) often make that easier said than done. This session explores some of the unique nutritional needs of working cancer survivors and practical solutions for health eating during the work day. Topics discussed include:
- How proper nutrition and eating habits can help you manage treatment side-effects on the job
- Best practices for planning and preparing meals for your workdays
- Tips for getting around obstacles to eating healthy at the office
- And more!
