Things I’m loving this week… for Energy
Energy is something that we lack sometimes, no matter how well we’re treating ourselves. I hate the feeling of not having energy and not feeling the active and lively version of myself.
I love finding new ways to help with my energy levels and this week I’m so excited to share them with you.
My general tips for staying energised are to exercise, sleep well, drink lots of water and be mindful, but in addition to this here are my favourite products which help to keep up my energy levels whenever I feel a little bit of a slump…
This is a great breakfast to help fuel your day. Full of fibre and easy to digest, your body won’t use too much energy on the digestion process so your energy levels will remain high.
Coconut water is great for energy levels. Make sure you go for the raw version, as this is full of much more goodness than the pasteurised ones you find on the supermarket shelves.
Maca powder is great for energy! I love adding it to smoothies and porridge. The taste is lovely too; it gives a malt like caramel taste that goes really well with raw cacao (another energy giving super food!)
Spirulina has many health benefits and I love incorporating this green ingredient into my diet. This super food is organic, vegan and helps increase energy, vitality and well-being.
Goji Berries contain a wealth of minerals, such as zinc, iron, copper, calcium, germanium, selenium and phosphorus. All of these contribute to improved energy levels.
If you’re looking to cut down on coffee and your general caffeine intake a great way to do this is by starting to incorporate more green tea. It tastes great and you get a little boost too.
This is an 8 week transformational program that is designed to make sure you have a personal trainer, chef and life coach all at hand in your pocket. All meal plans are made, it’s easy to follow and your shopping lists are prepared. The plan can definitely help improve energy levels.
Flaxseed oil is a rich and natural source of omega 3 and helps with energy levels due to its fibre content along with many other benefits.
Sometimes when I am short of energy the best thing to do is hit my mat and do a yoga sequence. I instantly feel rejuvenated, relaxed and energetic.
Dates are low GI and full of fibre so if you’re looking for something sweet this date nectar is a great alternative to sugar which won’t spike your blood sugar levels in the same way.
Cinnamon is great at stabilising blood sugar levels and also provides a great deal of energy. I find having it in the morning helps me avoid sweet temptations later on in the day.
Vitamin B complex works hard at creating and sustaining your body’s energy supply by helping to break down proteins, fats and carbohydrates. It helps to keep your heart healthy and immunity strong. It’s a great treatment if you are lacking energy or stressed.
