Energising snacks that are better than Coffee

We all love a cup of coffee in the morning to start our day. However, a lot of times we feel like we need a second cup of coffee by the afternoon, but we don’t want to have that much coffee in one day. Instead, we should snack on foods that are not only tasty, but that also give us some energy to survive the day. If you need more energy in the afternoon but don’t want to reach for another cup of coffee, here are some great snacks that pack a punch to keep you moving.

Banana with a tablespoon of nut butter – the sugar in a banana takes longer to metabolise, which gives you long-lasting energy instead of a sugar rush. The protein in the nut butter will provide you with long-lasting energy as well.

Whole Grain Crackers with a Tablespoon of Hummus – the complex carbs in whole grains will provide you with long-lasting energy, while the hummus will help fight off hunger. Thus, this snack is great for fighting that weak, tired feeling you get when you are hungry. You can be creative too and try some international hummus recipes you might never of had before to spice up your snack life.
