If you’re anything like me you know that you can’t function properly on an empty stomach. I hit the 3pm slump HARD every single day at work. It is the awkward time during the day when you had lunch maybe like 2 hours ago and then you’ll be eating dinner in 3 hours or so but you sit at your desk and your stomach is just growling. We’ve all been here. Whether or not you have a desk job like me, if you are on the go constantly and have no time to get a healthy snack the temptations can be real. Over the years of becoming more “wiser” in the kitchen, I like to compliment myself by saying that I have some great snack ideas up my sleeve. These healthy snacks keep my energy level in check and give me the extra protein I need to make it to dinner time. Trust me, I constantly think about the next meal that I’m going to eat (hope I’m not the only one!) because I am always hungry but these snacks help me keep on track.
GoMacro bars have been my go to for about a year now. They come in some incredible flavors and keep me full for hours. A couple of my favorites are Everlasting Joy, Protein Pleasure, and Protein Paradise. What’s great about these bars is that they have 10g+ of protein with healthy carbs and fats to keep you moving once you’ve hit that slump.
