Soon after lunch, your alertness goes for a toss and you reach out for a cup of coffee. Leave that aside and consume sin-free food items like raw vegetables with hummus, oatmeal and organic nut bars.

Geeta Bector, marketing director and chief tasting officer of Cremica, shares a list of snacks that are in favour of your body:

* Raw vegetables with hummus: Raw vegetables like carrots and cucumbers, contain life-enhancing enzymes, which are destroyed when cooked and processed. Enzymes are essential for optimum digestion, metabolism and absorption. They also help in avoiding afternoon grogginess. Snack on carrots, cucumber and celery sticks with hummus.
