Do you find yourself at work trying to power through the day? Small 150- 200 calorie snacks can be the key to replenishing your energy between meals.

Next time you’re feeling that midday slump, skip the coffee and try these 5 healthy foods for a quick boost.


Rich in natural sugars, bananas pack a powerful punch.  Not only are they a good source of fiber, which helps promote long-lasting energy, they’re packed full of vitamin B-6 which improves cognitive function.


Almonds are an easy to pack snack, making them perfect for that midday pick-me-up. Packed with protein, manganese, copper and riboflavin, ounce for ounce these are some of the most nutrient-rich nuts. The copper and manganese keep energy flowing by neutralizing cell toxins while riboflavin spurs oxygen-based fuel production.


High in fiber, these colorful treats will give you a more sustained boost than many other fruits. These easy to tote snacks are loaded with vitamins, minerals and good carbs, making them an ideal feel-good option.
