Eating To Keep Your Energy Levels Up

BWG SEO22 Feb 2023

With the new year now well underway, we all have ample work on our plates, with much more lying ahead. However, like the rest of us, you’re probably wondering how you are going to have enough energy to do it all and keep going.  

Thankfully, much of it comes down to eating right and making sure your body is getting the right mix of nutrients every day. This is relatively easy to achieve thanks to our ComlEat Wellness organic store in Wanaka, where you can order everything you need online for a healthy body and mind and have it delivered to your door.

Here are some foods you want to make sure you always have in your diet so that you never feel fatigued prematurely.

Fruits And Vegetables

Fruits like bananas, apples, and berries are high in natural sugars such as fructose and glucose, which can provide a quick boost of energy. It’s good to always have a couple of these on hand as a pick-me-up rather than a cup of coffee. They are also rich in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C and potassium, which are essential for keeping your energy levels up and ensuring that your immune system fights off illnesses that can make you feel tired.

Vegetables like spinach, broccoli, and kale are known for being high in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. What this means is that they can help boost and even sustain energy levels without spiking, protecting you against fatigue. Spinach and broccoli, especially, are rich in iron, which is essential for carrying oxygen throughout the body. Strong oxygen flow throughout the body will make you feel more alert and focused.

Nuts And Seeds

Nuts and seeds like almonds, chia seeds and flaxseeds are a great source of healthy fats, protein, and fibre, all of which help to keep you feeling full and energised for longer periods of time. They also aid with healthy digestion so that you remain regular. These fibre-rich foods are also packed with minerals like magnesium, which plays a key role in energy production by converting food into energy.

Whole Grains

The importance of eating lots of whole grains cannot be overstated. It should form the basis of any healthy diet. Things like quinoa, brown rice and oats contain complex carbohydrates, which provide a slow and steady release of energy throughout the day, as opposed to refined grains which can lead to energy crashes after eating. Whole grains are also rich in B vitamins, which are essential for maintaining a healthy energy metabolism.

Lean Proteins

Lastly, your body cannot survive without plenty of protein. The best source of lean protein comes from meat like chicken or fish. However, beans and tofu are also good sources. These proteins are essential for maintaining and repairing the body's tissues thanks to the amino acids that they provide and can, therefore, also play a significant role in helping to keep energy levels up.
