Do you find you’re tired all the time? Don’t worry babe, us too.
Between your 9-5, catching up with besties, exercise and trying to fit in your weekly Love Island binge, it’s no wonder we all feel as though we could use some more shut eye. Before you order your 3rd extra strong flat white for the day, why not try reaching for any of these super foods to give you the perk up you need.
The most obvious pick for natural energy. Bananas are high in potassium and carbohydrates, making them a great source of fuel. Ensure you take a banana with you to work everyday to help ease those serious energy slumps.
We all know and love this green superfood. Not only does it taste delicious but it will help you feel more energised and productive. It’s packed full of good fats, essential nutrients and protein that will help sustain energy. Try adding avocado to your meal to go from sleepy to supercharged.
Nuts and Seeds
In times when you need an extra pick me up, a trail mix of nuts and seeds will do the trick. They are filled with monounsaturated fats (the best fats) and are a top pick for an energy dense snack. They won't just give the boost you need but are great for skin and heart health.
A sweet treat that conquers fatigue? Say no more. Dark chocolate contains theobromine which elevates alertness and positively affects your mood. Cacao actually contains more theobromine than coffee, so next time you're in need of a lift, grab some dark chocolate to boost energy minus the caffeine crash.
Kale is extremely high in iron which is essential for all our fellow vegetarian and vegan babes out there. When the body is low in iron it leads to feelings of exhaustion and tiredness, so it’s essential to fuel the body with plenty of iron. It’s time to start making friends with salad and adding kale to your weekly shopping list.
End the battle with feeling tired all the time. Load your body with nutrition-dense foods morning to night and feel the difference.
