Combat the afternoon lag with something smart—and savory
The want: A midafternoon pick-me-up that's tasty, healthy, and doesn't leave oil on your fingers. It shouldn't be available in a vending machine, but should stay fresh in your desk drawer.
The get: Rhythm Superfood Kale Chips ($5 at DailyJuice.org). Eating these is like snacking on a salad. One 106-calorie serving (there are two per bag) delivers 5g of protein, 2g of fiber, and over 100 percent of the vitamins A and C you need for the day. Ground ancho and cayenne give the Zesty Nacho a piquant kick, while the Kool Ranch variety is a grown-up reminder of your Doritos days.
Sahale Biscotti Chips
These pomegranate-flavored crisps pair with coffee and fill you up: A dozen have 4g of protein, 3g of fiber, and 130 calories.
Justin's Nut Butter
With 3g of fiber and 6g of protein, each 190-calorie pack of almond butter is sweet but not too sugary, so you won't crash.
Emerald Dark Chocolate Cocoa Roast Almonds
The container's cap measures 150 calories worth of cocoa-dusted nuts rich in protein and vitamin E.
