Taking a break to enjoy an afternoon treat can be just what you need to beat the struggle. When you’re looking for your post-lunch fix, it’s important to fuel your body with nutritious treats to help you avoid the ‘crash and burn’.If you find yourself falling into a humdrum afternoon, we’ve got you covered with these healthier snacks.
Try out the newly launched KitKat Chocolatory Sublime Incoa (RRP $5.00) for all the chocolatey taste without the guilt. Using cacao pulp to naturally sweeten the chocolate, this tasty treat is the perfect chocolate fix for choc-lovers looking for a healthier snack alternative at work.
These super-powered balls of goodness are a delicious and wholesome way to help you get through the afternoon slump. Unlike sugary sweets, Bounce Natural Protein Balls (Box of 12 – RRP $36.00) are healthier snacks packed with healthy fats and antioxidant micronutrients to help keep you energized all day.
A serving of Greek yoghurt , such as Chobani No Fat Yoghurt (RRP $7.00), can pack a real punch of protein to help tide you over the afternoon slump. As protein takes longer to digest, you’ll curb your cravings and bring back focus.
