The midday slump is a problem that plagues us all. If you have been going since 6 AM and you have to make it until the end of a long and grueling workday, having an arsenal of healthy foods to keep up your energy levels can make all the difference.
Here are five of the best snacks that can naturally boost your energy at work.
Almonds are a great snack to help you get through a long day. They are packed with Vitamin E and Magnesium, both of which are essential to maintain healthy energy levels. They are also fantastically convenient to pack into a bag or lunch tin for a quick snack.
If you need a high source of protein, energy and essential amino acids, look no further than the humble egg. Eggs contain very high amounts of protein for their size and deliver all this fantastic nutritional value in a small and convenient shell.
Fruit has always been a great way to boost your energy throughout the day. Filled with healthy sugars and vitamins, fruit is a great guilt-free sweet treat. Some people even consider apples to be better than coffee at waking you up!
Honey, whilst being nature’s Redbull, is one of the healthiest forms of sugar you can consume. So throw some honey in your afternoon tea for that needed kick of energy.
Chilli is a surprisingly effective food for staying awake. Chilli will boost the metabolism, speeding it up and leading to better energy expenditure. It will also aid in weight loss and digestion.
