4/19/2017

Long day at the office or midterm week and you need to study? Its easy to grab the quickest chocolate bar to keep you going, however not only will you start packing up the calories but these will eventually give you a sugar crash. So try out these snacks below that can help keep you energized and optimize your working potential!

Banana Bites

Whole grain toast + all natural nut butter + Banana = cut them into bite size pieces and enjoy

Grapes and Berries

Basically all fruits are great energy boosters filled with brain energizing vitamins and minerals. Grapes and berries are easy to eat bite size on the desk near you; they’re also delicious frozen when you’re craving something sweet.

My favorite Home-made granola

The easiest 3 steps for an all-natural snack:

1.       Toast some rolled oats in baking pan drizzled with honey

2.       Mix the toasted oats with flaxseed or pumpkin seeds

3.       Add dried fruits (raisins, cranberries, diced apricots)

 Hummos Dip and Veggie Sticks

We can’t have too much hummos! It’s a great low calorie dip packed with lean protein and healthy carbs to give you some energy and keep you full. Pair it with veggie sticks (cucumbers or carrots) for dipping.

Quinoa Energy Bars

If you’re a fan of quinoa try these unique energy bars:

Dry Quinoa, Chia seeds, dried cranberries, pistachios, cinnamon, honey, almond butter.

Mix dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients. Place evenly on a baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool then cut into rectangles.
