The best guilt-free healthy snacks to keep your energy up during the day

Special offer on HelloSpace.Me

We’re teachers, we know what it’s like to be dragging ourselves when we’re low-energy or weak with hunger. Thank goodness for the short breaks between classes where we can get a bite to tide us over. As you know, HelloSpace.Me is a socially responsible company, and so what can be compatible with our hunger pangs?

Chocolate bars are easy to get, tasty, but very, very bad. The palm oil used in chocolate bars is the main reason for forests being cleared for farming in countries like Indonesia. The cocoa plantations globally are starting to suffer diseases caused by mono-culture farming. That is, if one tree can be infected, then the disease can go unstopped across the whole plantation, which results in lower yields, and is a reason for the slow rise of chocolate prices. The other ingredients are not organic, and may contain organophosphates, and other chemicals that are allergenic or carcinogenic. However, your energy is low, you have a class to keep engaged and energised, and it’s still another hour or more until lunch or dinner.

Thankfully we have iHerb! Get healthy snack bars that use organically grown ingredients, which are also healthy. iHerb snacks are often low sugar but high in other things like protein or fiber to help you make it to the next real meal. Be guilt free and healthy at the same time.
