Hope you’re all having a good week! I’ve just finished my internship at Student & Graduate Publishing, so I’m now looking for journalism courses and jobs! I haven’t had much luck so far, but fingers cross I’ll get something soon!
So today’s post will be all about snacks! It is not only main meals that help fuel your brain – snacks can also make you more alert and increase productivity throughout the day. However, rather than munching on a packet of crisps or a bar of chocolate, which both contain hundreds of calories, it’s best to stick to natural foods, such as raw chocolate, fruit and seeds. These all have minimal additional ingredients and are full of iron, protein, magnesium and antioxidants. Thy are perfect for boosting your energy levels, and you’ll feel less hungry later in the day. GoToMeeting has come up with a really handy infographic that shows some healthy snack alternatives:

I personally love some of the snacks on this list. Smoothies have become my go-to drink in the mornings, and I try to eat as much fruit as I can – my favourites includes mango, strawberry, raspberry and pineapple. Hummus makes a really tasty dip for sliced veg and crackers – I normally have hummus with carrots, cucumber and tomatoes. Yummy! I don’t really eat quinoa or seeds, but I intend to incorporate them more into my diet.
