8 Energy Powered Snacks to get You through your Day!

May 22, 2017

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


 

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!  

 

Honey

 

Yes honey is a food! As sweet as it is, honey offers healthier, natural carbohydrates, like fructose and glucose, to pep up those cells.

 

Almonds

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.

 

Greek Yogurt


 

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. 

 

Egg

 


My favorite protein source! Eggs offer the highest complete form of protein of any food. 

Tuna


 

Tuna, offering protein and B vitamins, has long been the choice of athletes in need of long-lasting energy foods.

 

Hummus

 


Made with chickpeas, hummus is a good source of lean protein. You can enjoy hummus with your favorite veggies or low calorie crackers.
