Do you often feel sleepy and tired during office hours? Perhaps healthy snacks can help boost your mood and energy level! We will recommend five healthy snacks weekly and where to get them. The first? Nuts!
Benefits of nuts
Nuts have long shelf life, easy to buy and keep. Not only that, eating nuts are shown to prevent heart disease (i.e. walnuts), protect against the damaging effects of stress, bolster immune system (i.e. almonds), protect against lung cancer (i.e. pistachios) and prostate cancer (i.e. Brazil nuts), prevent cognitive decline, and also help one to lose weight.
