Imagine this. You get to the office after a long weekend of healthy eating and lots of good outdoor exercise, and you arrive to find three of your colleagues have their birthday today. As you sit there, gulping down delicious cake bite after bite, you wonder how you will ever manage to eat healthy at work.

Well, you can’t really avoid the birthday cakes that come your way without being rude. But with healthy office catering, you can ensure that everyone is eating healthy during office events or lunches. Read on for some healthy office lunch catering ideas.

Consider Healthier Methods of Food Preparation

Too many office lunch catering meals end up being fried, instead of being prepared healthily. Try poaching, baking, steaming, grilling, broiling, or roasting your meal instead. This will create delicious meals that are healthy and won’t add too much fat to your staff’s diet.

Consider All Dietary Requirements of Your Staff

Nowadays, everyone seems to be on a special diet of some kind or another. That’s why you need to consider everyone’s dietary requirements in addition to their flavor needs when creating or choosing an on-site catering menu. You should have something on your menu for people on a keto diet, a paleo diet, a vegan diet, and a normal diet.


Consider Ways You Can Add Healthy Ingredients Without Losing Taste

You don’t want to create a catered meal where it’s so chockfull of healthy ingredients that it loses all semblance of taste and flavor. You want a meal that has healthy ingredients added in, like spices, herbs, seeds, nuts, and more, which enhances the flavor rather than takes away from it.

Consider Portion Size – Even if It’s a Buffet-Style Catered Meal

Too often people will finish everything on their plate, even if they are already full. That’s why you need to help people control their portion sizes by either offering smaller plate sizes or smaller portion sizes. The big eaters can always grab more food if they wish, but this means that the tiny eaters won’t have to worry about cleaning up their plates.

Consider Presenting Food Beautifully to Increase Satisfaction Levels
