You get to the afternoon and your energy levels start to flag. We have all been there and the temptation to reach for a sugary energy drink is hard to resist. Well, resist it people because we don’t need those high caffeine sugary drinks in our diet, we need healthy natural energy. The answer for getting through that afternoon energy slump is to choose a suitable healthy energy-rich snack, which you can have with you.
One great and simple option is a big old jar of mixed unsalted mixed nuts. They are high in protein and natural calories so are not only healthy for you but they are also super convenient to have with you. You could also make some tasty healthy granola at home in advance with mixed cereals, nuts and dried fruits, which is packed with energy and a really healthy option.
Basically, you have a three point checklist for an afternoon snack. Is it simple to make, is it healthy and does it pack plenty of energy into a small package? If your snack ticks all these boxes then you have the perfect afternoon treat that will supplement your healthy eating regime.
