It’s the middle of the afternoon, and you can barely keep your head off your desk. You have hours left at work, but you have no energy to finish your projects. At times like this, you need a healthy snack to get you to the end of the day. Which snacks will give you the energy you need?
Nuts are a great way to fuel up for your day. Nuts contain protein, carbohydrates, and fats, with a high concentration of protein, making them a nutritious source of plant-based energy. Nuts are also associated with an increase in metabolism, prevention of blood-sugar spikes and reduced hunger throughout the day. Overall, nuts give you sustained energy throughout the day, due to their nutritional content and high satiation effects.
If you’re looking for a wide variety of choices of nuts, L’Orenta Nuts has a huge stock of nuts and nut mixes that can provide you with your nutritional needs. We have individual bags of nuts, such as almonds, which provide health benefits such as lowered cholesterol and lowered heart disease risk through their high Vitamin E and antioxidant content.
We also offer nut mixes, such as our Energy Boost mix, which contain a mixture of nuts and dried fruit. Dried fruit provides the same amount of fiber as fresh fruit, alongside a more concentrated serving of antioxidants. Put together, nuts and dried fruit are a great choice for energy and nutrition.
Packaged energy bars are another easy product when you need an easily-portable snack to bring along during your busy day. When choosing an energy bar, look for products with only a few natural ingredients. Often, energy bars equate “energy” with higher sugar and calorie contents, rather than balanced nutrient profiles. Choose a bar like L’Orenta’s Fruit Fusion Bars, which provide a boost of energy without excess fat, calories or unhealthy ingredients. Made with gluten-free, vegan ingredients, Fruit Fusion bars are the perfect on-the-go healthy snack.
Healthy choices are the foundation of a productive day. Without the right sources of energy, you’ll find yourself tired and unmotivated. Once you’ve selected the right snack for your energy and nutrition needs, you’ll be ready to conquer whatever your day throws at you.
