what fruits and veggies, if eaten at lunch, would give you the most energy throughout the afternoon?
All fruits and vegetables will provide energy. They are also filling, which will help to prevent feelings of hunger for a longer period. For sustained energy throughout the afternoon, your best bet is to consume a well-balanced lunch that includes 1-2 cups of fruits and vegetables, a protein food such as beans, low fat cheese, or lean meat, and a whole grain item such as whole wheat bread. A piece of fruit is a great way to boost your energy in the afternoon. Check out the recipes right here on our website for some creative recipes to add variety and interest to your lunches and snacks.
