NUT_JulietteSnack_MAINWhat if I told you that right now you can increase your focus, performance, physical endurance and help prevent fatigue with energy boosting snacks? These snacks totally worked for me and that tricky petite allegro combination became no sweat! As dancers, it’s important that we give our bodies the necessary nutrition it needs to power through demanding hours in the studio. Long days with short breaks require fast, lasting fuel. Snacks like whole fruit, veggies, seeds, and nuts are super healthy and so simple. The calories from these carbohydrates are converted straight into a stable source of energy which will be instantly utilized.

These are my top 5 energy boosting snacks:

  1. Apple & Almond Butter
  2. Bananas
  3. Bell Pepper & Hummus (or carrot sticks)
  4. Nuts & Seeds
  5. Dried fruit

Another treat I like to munch on throughout the day is trail mix. I make my own by combining pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut flakes, dried cranberries, and walnuts. The fun thing is that you can mix it up and add anything you like, the possibilities are endless. Happy Snacking!
