We’ve all been there – it’s only just gone midday and your eyes are getting heavy. It might feel like reaching for sweets and sugary snacks will make you feel better but it will actually do the opposite.
‘The problem with a quick fix is that it spikes your blood glucose levels but after the effects wear off your blood glucose levels come crashing down and the feelings of fatigue are back,’ says nutritionist Holly Sorce. ‘If you then reach for another quick fix you become locked into a rollercoaster of energy highs and lows that is difficult to break.’
So, step away from the extra-strong coffee and donuts and say hello to your new best food friends that will boost your energy and get you through the day.
