    Best Foods for Boosting Energy

    12th June 2018

    By Shivraj Bassi

    Why It Matters

    Eating the right foods can keep your energy levels high without a caffeine crash later on.

    When your energy levels drop, instinct might see you reach for a cup of coffee or something sweet for a quick boost. As the day passes and you’re suddenly 6 flat whites down, you might start questioning your life decisions and whether there may be a healthier alternative. To help, we’ve put together a list of some of the best foods for boosting energy when that 4pm slump kicks in.

    Matcha Green Tea

    As a result of its unique combination of nutrients and amino acids, Matcha Green Tea is known for its energy and endurance benefits, which can last up to 6 hours. And because it contains the amino acid L-Theanine, Matcha drinkers tend to avoid the jittery caffeine side effects that coffee drinkers might experience.

    Fresh Fruit

    Fresh fruit is the perfect healthy option for fighting fatigue. Its high levels of natural sugar provide a quick pick-me-up whilst fibre content ensures blood sugar levels remain steady throughout the day. Try fruits like pineapple which contain iodine to control how quickly your body burns energy or blueberries, which are packed with antioxidants.

    Nuts

    Cashews, almonds and hazelnuts are high in magnesium, which play a key role in converting sugar to energy. Nuts are also filled with fibre, meaning they are able to keep your blood sugar levels even whilst keeping you fuller for longer.

    Dark Chocolate

    Dark chocolate contains the natural stimulant theobromine. Theobromine is similar to caffeine in that it boosts your energy and your mood. But don't overdo it, one small square of dark chocolate should be enough to get you through those 4pm slumps.

    Brown Rice 

    Rich in magnesium, which helps produce energy from protein and carbohydrates. Simply serve as a side dish with your favourite lean protein or add to some veggies for a powerhouse mountain of a lunch or dinner.

    Sweet Potato

    High in carbohydrates and loaded with vitamins A and C, sweet potatoes help you fight the midday fatigue whilst tasting like a sweet treat.

    Spinach

    Spinach is a great source of iron, which is the main component of energy production in the body. Eat a spinach salad for lunch to keep energy levels at a high level.

    Eggs

    Containing an amazing complete source of protein (97% of it can be absorbed by your body), eggs contain all of the essential amino acids your body needs. Whether you eat them boiled, scrambled, baked or fried, eggs are a go-to source of protein and energy.

    The Energy Booster

    The Energy Booster is our pre/intra-workout booster containing ingredients like BCAAs, citrulline malate, maca, and beta alanine. These ingredients maximise performance, combat tiredness, enhance energy and keep you going on and on. 

    The Fit Protein

    The Fit Protein is our superfood protein blend containing energy improving ingredients like rhodiola root, magnesium, maca and pink Himalayan sea salt, which when combined together make an amazing energy boosting blend.
