It’s 3:00 PM and your body is starting to get tired and your eyes are beginning to close and you’re feeling depleted and drained. This may very well be caused by what you’ve eaten or not eaten during the day and it’s why you’re tired so darn early. Many people who feel tired in the afternoon hours haven’t eaten breakfast – and I, In My Humble Opinion, breakfast is probably the most important meal of the whole day! When you get up in the morning and eat a power-packed breakfast, full of protein and complex carbohydrates and a little bit of healthy fat, you can go on for a couple of energy-filled hours you need to get things done, have a little bit of fun, get some life-sustaining exercise and still have extra energy you need to get you — UNTIL YOU’RE READY TO EAT LUNCH! That’s right, you will have much more consistent energy if you keep eating little bits of healthy food throughout the day – keeping your blood sugar levels constant, and maintaining high energy levels all day.
Certain foods give you more energy than others, so keep these on your daily menu for extra energy and oomph! -
- Chia seeds
- Green Tea
- Low fat dairy products
- Citrus Fruit
- Whole grains
- Sweet potatoes
To keep naturally healthy and also to keep your body and skin looking and feeling young, keep eating the right foods and don’t forget to eat. Skipping meals will make your blood sugar levels dip and dive and your energy will falter and your eyelids will droop. Not a naturally beautiful sight for women or men! Eat well and you will stay lively and vibrant all day long. For a mid-meal pick-me-up, carry a small bag of almonds with you wherever you go. And don’t forget that the very first rule of natural beauty and natural health is – Keep yourself hydrated with lots of good clean water!
