We often hear about how snacking in between meals can be an unhealthy choice. Choose the wrong foods, and this grazing can lead to weight gain, which, in turn, can also lead to health problems, lack of energy and general lethargy.
But snacking can also be really beneficial as an energy boost if you choose the right snacks. Video Conferencing provider gotomeeting have recently been discussing this very issue, and have put together a great infographic that details the snacks that really do help if you are looking for an energy boost, to feel fuller for longer and to actually improve your moods. And while some of the ideas are of the seed variety, which may seem a poor substitute for reaching for the Mars Bar, there are some snacks that are real delicious treats including hummus and crackers, delicious fruit smoothies and Turkey roll ups – which consist of turkey, breadsticks and a choice of mustard or mango chutney. I think they sound delicious.
