  • Best Foods for Boosting Energy

    12th June 18

    Why It Matters

    Because there are alternatives to coffee when it comes to boosting energy levels!

    When your energy is low, 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 cups of coffee 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.
