Wellness Wednesday: Eating for Energy

If you are like me, you might need an energy boost a couple times a day. Lately I’ve been reaching for sugary snacks way more than I should. Yesterday I ate a brownie after lunch and snacked on sugary junk all afternoon. And yesterday evening, I crashed. It was painful. And then I didn’t sleep so well last night. Time for an overhaul.

Think: protein, fruit, veggies. I’m going to stock my purse with healthier snacks before leaving the house this morning!

Instead of eating: Swap for:
– multiple, large bowls of cereal – one or two eggs
– coffee or soda – one or two cups of green tea
– sugary snacks – banana, string cheese, nuts, carrots, dark chocolate (at least 75%)
