The Best Foods For Energy All Day!

When you start noticing your energy levels dipping, do you tend to reach for a cup of coffee or something sweet? They might keep you going for a little while, but it’s likely to be a short-term fix. 

If you’ve ever felt the full force of a 3pm slump, then you might want to find ways to increase your energy, naturally! These are a few foods you can use:

Almonds
Raw, unsalted almonds are a great snack, especially if you’re feeling a bit run down. Almonds contain a number of B-vitamins, which help your body to convert food into energy. Almonds also contain magnesium, which is needed for your muscles to function optimally. Low magnesium levels may leave you feeling tired faster when you exercise. 

Spinach
Popeye was onto something! Spinach is a really good source of iron, which your body needs to produce energy. 

The iron in spinach is called ‘non-haem’ iron, which is a form our body doesn’t absorb as readily. To get the most benefit from eating spinach or other green leafy vegetables, try to add foods high in vitamin C to the same meal. For example, you might want to add some red capsicum (peppers) or some orange slices to a spinach salad.

Eggs
Everyone knows how much I love eggs! They can provide our bodies with energy in a few ways and it’s easy to have eggs with your favourite foods

Eggs are a complete protein, which means they contain all of the essential amino acids our body needs for tasks like building tissue and producing energy. Eggs also contain iron and zinc, two minerals that can help to keep your energy level up. 

When you’re feeling tired, I know it can be tempting to reach for a quick fix. Instead, try drinking some more water and including some of these foods in your day for more energy. I’m sure you’ll notice a difference!
