When you need a boost – Power snacks

It takes energy to concentrate. Yet at times we feel our energy just drain away. We are tired, sluggish, exhausted. But it doesn’t have to stay like that. There are several things you can do to find your way back to more energy. Eating the right foods, for example, can help boost your performance. And the meeting can go on!

Seasonal is the best

Regional foods harvested in the right season and at the proper ripeness are fresher and can unfold their full potential. This guarantees a higher nutrient content, which helps to nourish both body and mind.

 

Fat is not always bad

Fatty foods aren’t automatically bad for you. Healthy fats, mainly from vegetable oils, nuts, fatty fish and avocados, are full of energy and take vitamins like A, D and K where they need to go. That makes healthy fats a vital part of a balanced diet.

It all starts in the morning

The best way to start the day is with a balanced breakfast. A filling meal of eggs and yoghurt will give you the energy you need to get down to work.

 

But often you need a quick boost of energy in between – during a break from your meeting or learning session, for example. In that case, the following power snacks are just the thing:
