Have you found yourself at your desk (or wherever your work day space is) and wondered how it is ___ and your already so exhausted?!
Well no need to worry my dear foodies! I have put together a short list of power packed, commonly eaten snacks that will take your mood from blah to BAM!
Green tea is loaded with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a substance that may increase the rate of fat burn. It also contains some caffeine to temporarily give your energy levels a boost!
Yes honey is a food! As sweet as it is, honey offers healthier, natural carbohydrates, like fructose and glucose, to pep up those cells.
Snacking on 12-14 whole, unsalted almonds comes in at about 100 calories. You can't beat this low calorie snack!
Fresh Fruit & Fresh Vegetables
Low in calories and high in complex (good) carbohydrates, fresh fruit is a natural fit on our foods for energy list. While eating fruit does wonders for the body, eating a variety of vegetables also loads your body with energy-boosting nutrients like iron and potassium.
Provides a higher protein content than conventional yogurt for an extra energy boost. You can add chia seeds, fruit, and honey to take this snack to a new level.
My favorite protein source! Eggs offer the highest complete form of protein of any food.
Tuna, offering protein and B vitamins, has long been the choice of athletes in need of long-lasting energy foods.
Made with chickpeas, hummus is a good source of lean protein. You can enjoy hummus with your favorite veggies or low calorie crackers.
