By the time 3pm rolls around I often find myself a bit sluggish…especially if I’ve spent a day in the office. Often times most of us find our tummies grumbling for some sugar filled treat, hoping the instant sugar rush will wake us up during this afternoon lull. However, as we all have discovered that “sugar boost” lasts 30minutes to an hour and then we often find ourselves with less energy and more tired then before the snack :(. So what’s the best snack to keep the energy up and prevent an instant crash? Well, any snack that is rich in protein, balanced by carbohydrates and fat.
“Keep it simple”, my 2013 resolution. So one afternoon I decided to do just that and mix almonds (fat and protein), coconut flakes (a nice crunch), and semi-chocolate chips (a dash of sweet). Super simple and quite delicious! Great for a snack on the run, sitting at the computer or on a weekend paired with a chilled Chardonnay :)!
