What should you eat at work?

No--besides THAT.

Doughnuts, crullers, Danish, bear claws--no no no. Not those either.

Kaitlin Louie, of Onlinedegrees.com, says greasy sandwiches and vending machine bait are also not great for sustaining energy and creativity during the workday.

Usually, you can get stimulants--coffee, tea--bosses want sound oomph. But combined with those cheese and mayo concoctions, these can dim your edge.

First--saw this one coming, didn't you--eat leafy greens. These slow digestion of starches, making them more available for energy.

Be sure to get enough iron. This helps carry oxygen around your body--and to the old brain.

You need some fats--healthy ones--like Omega 3s. Fish, walnuts.

And watch the caffeine.

Yeah--I watch it go down.

All this is probably good advice--listen up.

And tell those doughnuts to get themselves out of your head.

PS Does lettuce on a cheeseburger count as leafy? Never mind.
