Health E-Hint: Discover These Energy-Boosting Snacks!

Do you suffer from midday slumps where your energy seems to be completely sapped out? Then try these healthy and nutritious snacks that are guaranteed to keep you going all day long!

  • Apple or banana with peanut butter: Spread 1 Tbsp peanut butter on a medium-sized piece of fruit. These fruits are all-natural low-calorie energy boosters, and the peanut butter gives you protein.
  • Yogurt and granola: Mix 6 ounces of plain non-fat yogurt with 1 Tbsp of granola for a sweet crunchy snack. This will provide energy and protein.
  • Dried fruits or nuts: This mix will provide you with good fats and protein, plus the nuts are a slow-burning food that keeps you full and awake. The fruit is packed with fiber, too. To avoid added sugar, look for whole or organic fruits.
  • Whole grain crackers and hummus: The whole grain will fill you up without making you sleepy and the hummus—made from garbanzo beans and olive oil—provides some added fiber.
