If your energy is zapped by lunchtime, don’t reach for crisps, swap to houmous on pitta instead. Not only will it cut out on uneccessary fats, it’s a better energy boost for you.

Afternoon snack swap

Grabbing a bar of chocolate in the afternoon seems like a good idea at the time. But the sugar boost will be short lived. For longer lasting energy, reach for prunes and raisins for a slower, longer release.

Drink swap

Caffeine drinks should get the elbow if you’re looking for an energy lift. Reach for a cool glass of orange juice instead for your energy fix.
