Energizing recipes to get you through the long day – and the longer holiday season
We’ve all been there: You’re having an extremely productive day and then, suddenly, 2 p.m. hits, rendering you completely exhausted and unfocused. We refer to this as the “midday slump,” and it’s perfectly natural. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have the time to stop and take a much-needed nap. But not to worry! We’ve put together some favorite recipes for helping you fuel you up and avoiding that dreaded crash. These recipes can come in especially handy during a long day of holiday party planning or meal prepping – or celebrating!
Let Peanut Butter Power You Through the Day
When you need an energy boost, reach for the nearest peanut butter snacks. That’s right, peanut butter. It’s an excellent source of protein and it can quickly power you up for the rest of your afternoon and evening.
Our powdered peanut butter products contain 5 grams of protein per serving and have 90% less fat and nearly 70% fewer calories than traditional peanut butter. Meaning, you’ll be more-than-adequately energized without feeling any of the guilt that comes with consumption of high-sugar, high-calorie snacks.
