Find yourself needing an afternoon “pick-me-up” just to get through the day?
  1. Carbs are not your enemy – if you pick the right ones.  Try brown rice, sweet potatoes, or a spoonful of honey.
  2. Most fruits can be easily and quickly digested for a quick, nutritious burst of energy.  Keep a banana, apple or orange in your bag for a pre-workout snack.
  3. Foods that come from a plant (like spinach, beans, or almonds) help you maintain energy, so try adding them to your lunch.
  4. Protein-rich foods help protect your muscle mass while your body metabolizes fat cells for energy.  Make room on your shopping list for salmon, yogurt, and eggs.
