Discover some easy snacks to keep in your desk drawer or office fridge that can keep energy meltdowns at bay.
Oranges have high levels of vitamin C, which has been shown to decrease fatigue around 2 hours after taking it in. So if you know you’re in for a slow afternoon, get ahead of the game with an orange.
- Greek Yogurt
Keep a few of these in the office fridge for a quick pick-me-up. Probiotics in yogurt can cause more activity in the decision-making areas of the brain.
- Dark Chocolate
Yes, you can indulge in a sweet afternoon treat! Aside from the wonderful taste, dark chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine. Opt for a dark chocolate with less sugar, so that you don’t get a sugar crash later.
Go nuts this afternoon. Many nuts—such as almonds, cashews, and pine nuts contain magnesium to boost energy.
Ok, it’s not a snack, but hear me out. Getting enough water can help you stay alert and most people aren’t getting enough of it. If you’re looking for a snack that can help hydration, try prepping containers of fruits and veggies with high water content, like some cubed watermelon, cucumber slices, or strawberries
