15 energy-boosting snacks for weary IT pros

Dark chocolate for a boost

Working in tech can be stressful and have serious health consequences. And let's face it: IT folks aren't known for having the best diets.

So. Are you feeling a little run down? Here are some snacks guaranteed to awaken and energize your overworked, inner code monkey.

You can have chocolate daily, but it had better be the type that actually improves your health. Filled with antioxidants, dark chocolate releases lots of feel-good endorphins, the same kind you get when you're falling in love -- which is very convenient when you're feeling frustrated with those adorable idealists over on the design team.
