What to eat to give you more energy

As most of us lead incredibly busy lives, it is often the case that come about 3-4pm we find ourselves struggling for energy. This can be due to lack of sleep, diet or simply just from being so busy. Although it may seem tempting to make yourself a super strong coffee or reach for the biscuits, they may not be the best thing to give you the lasting boost you need. Below are a number of foods that are proven to increase energy levels:

Bananas may be one of the best foods for energy. They are an excellent source of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6 all of which help to give you that energy boost you may need.

Brown rice is a very nutritious food. It is less processed that white rice which means it retains more nutritional value in the form of fiber, vitamins and minerals. One cup of this a day can help balance blood sugars throughout the day to maintain your energy levels.

Eggs can help to maintain a steady and sustained source of energy because it does not cause spikes in blood sugar and insulin when it is digested.

If you are finding that you are struggling with energy levels, then take a quick look at your diet and see if making some changes helps.
