Natural Energy Boosting Foods Get You through the Day

July 1, 2015

Numerous studies and anecdotal evidence has shown that standing desks can help you avoid midday lethargy. However, if standing up isn’t enough to get you through a mid-afternoon lull there are a few dietary alternatives you could try before making a beeline to the coffee or soda machine. Ideally, you’d sub in these foods for overly sweet, fatty, salty or processed foods, which can exacerbate an afternoon crash.


5 Best Foods for Fighting a Midday Crash


  1. Nuts – Nuts are an ideal snack, high in both protein and healthy fats.  A handful of nuts can help alleviate hunger and bolster energy. Plus, they digest slowly, so you’ll have energy to spare as you finish out the day.


  1. Avocado – Avocados are high in monounsaturated healthy fats, which fill you up without compromising your weight loss goals. And they can serve as a creamy replacement for many less healthy options.


  1. Fruits – Most fruits will give you a quick boost of energy due to their natural sugar. They’re packed with vitamins, minerals and fiber. And their natural sweetness will satisfy most sweet tooth’s cravings.


  1. Oatmeal – Oatmeal is typically eaten around breakfast time, but it also works as a midday snack. With B vitamins and fiber, oatmeal keeps you full and gives you lasting energy. And if you’re lucky, it’s not uncommon for offices to keep a free supply on hand.


  1. Eggs – Another breakfast staple, eggs are high in protein and unsaturated and saturated fats to keep you full and energized. A couple of hard-boiled eggs will vanquish midday hunger and help you make it to the end of the day.
