  • Do you suffer from the 3pm slump? Taking long breaks between meals (such as the typical 6 hour or longer gap between lunch and dinner) can reduce productivity and sap energy levels.
  • To keep your concentration and energy levels up, choose a healthy afternoon snack that contains protein, fibre and healthy fats. Quinoa, nuts and seeds are great choices!
  • Research studies suggest that people who regularly eat nuts have a lower risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Some studies show that snacking on nuts may help you control your weight, as their filling fibre and healthy fats can help you eat less later in the day. Keep in mind that nuts and seeds are high in calories, so limit your snack size to a handful.
