If you're feeling sluggish, boost your energy with the right kind of snacks. In the mood for something sweet? Pop a yam or sweet potato into the microwave. Top it with a little maple syrup or a dollop of low-fat Greek yogurt.

Need a fast snack when you're on the go? Have a brown rice cake with an avocado slice or peanut butter. Veggies can also take you a long way. Wrap a blanched asparagus spear with a slice of turkey or ham and low-fat cheese.

Get moving with a calcium-rich parfait. Layer low-fat Greek yogurt with granola and fruit. It's pretty and powerful.

Finally, warm up and fill up with a half English muffin topped with a slice of tomato and sprinkled with low-fat mozzarella. Toast and eat.

Remember, keep your snacks balanced with a mix of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean protein. This combo helps keep your energy up through the day.
