It’s 2 PM ever find you’re needing a “Magic Energy Burst?” 🤔 Get this #EnergyHack just 4 you 💯🙌

Whether it’s a stressful job, lack of sleep, juggling life, a family, or simply just trying to make it to the gym, at some time or another, we’ve all felt we could do with a little more—okay, A LOT more—energy.

We are going to give you 11 #Hackin’ Foods To Include In Your Diet For More Energy

{That’s Right We Said ’Hackin’ Foods ... Because these foods aren’t just you’re typical foods; They are #LifeHacks for your body and Brain}

Do you feel like this??? Is this you sometimes, maybe at that 2 PM point at work?? Are you so tired that you can barely focus? You are having a difficult time staying awake? You start having a headache, and you think to yourself there is no way you can accomplish everything that’s mounting up on your “To-Do” List....

Taking a look at what you’re eating during the day is a great place to start. Incorporating more of the following foods into your daily diet means that you’re getting all the nutrients needed to help boost energy.

Does this look familiar? Things seem overwhelming, you have already passed your 2 PM slump where you chose coffee as your “rescue” and now you are in a bigger slump with stress mounting by the minute. Piles of deadlines are before your eyes, and you realize that you may not be the superhero that people seem to think you are. How can you pull all of this together and actually survive?

Carbs in particular are the body’s preferred energy source—simply not eating enough of the right carbs during the day can often lead to feelings of fatigue and lack of energy in itself. Healthy fats are also super important for optimum brain function so you need to ensure you’re getting enough of these, too.

Clearly stress, high demands, lack of sleep/rest, and a lot of responsibility shows this is a very common theme among both genders, and ranging in age, depending on how highly functioning they were and how active the roles they played within the organizations they belong to.

The more solutions you seek to prevent these tired and bottomless energy levels, the better equipped your life will be to be effective in every area of life; from personal to business.

People need and want to feel better, and unfortunately are just unaware, just like this, the sooner they can feel better, function better, and become a better version of themselves they will be able to dedicate their time and commitment to these organizations on top of everyday life. Prevention is key, and self care is well care.

11#Hackin’ Foods for Everyday Energy:

1. Bananas

An excellent source of carbohydrates, potassium, and vitamin B6. Super easy for quick ‘grab and go’ snack!

2. Oily fish

Contains omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body which is a common cause of fatigue.

3. Sweet potatoes

High in fiber and complex carbs meaning your body digests sweet potatoes at a slower pace, providing you with a steady supply of energy.

4. Avocados

Rich in healthy fats and fiber. The good fats in avocados come from monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and can be stored in the body and used for energy.

5. Coffee

Fine to consume if you need a burst of energy. Caffeine can quickly pass from your bloodstream to your brain and increases the production of epinephrine. This hormone stimulates the body and brain to make you feel alert and focused.

6. Green tea or AXIO

Has all the benefits of caffeine but also L-theanine which delivers a smoother boost of energy. Green tea also contains high concentrations of powerful antioxidants that can help prevent oxidative stress and inflammation.

Whats absolutely unique to AXIO is that it CLEARS brain fog, is ACTIVATED with Nrf2 protien, and is all natural if you want a boost of caffeine (but also comes in decaf form/flavors too) along with the added benefits of antioxidants, organic acids and amino acids.

7. Oranges/Blueberries/Blackberries

Famous for their high vitamin C content but also contain antioxidant compounds that can provide protection from oxidative stress which can make you feel fatigued.

8. Wholegrains

Just one cup of brown rice provides about 88% of the RDI for manganese, a mineral that helps your enzymes break down carbohydrates and proteins to generate energy.

9. Hummus

The combination of chickpeas, tahini, oil and lemon makes hummus a great source of energy with lots of complex carbs, fibre and healthy fats.These ingredients assist in slowing down the absorption of carbs, which helps avoid blood sugar spikes.

10. Edamame

Chockful full of protein, carbs and fibre as well as vitamins and minerals including high levels of manganese and folic acid. Folic acid works with iron to promote energy and fight off fatigue, while manganese helps generate energy from the breakdown of carbs and protein.

11. Nuts and seeds

Nuts and seeds including almonds, brazil nuts, cashews (AKA ABC) are a rich source of essential fatty acids, fibre and antioxidants. Together these nuts have all the essential amino acids required to build a complete protein.

The combination of these micronutrients keeps appetite at bay and sustains energy for longer periods. Go for a handful of mixed raw nuts and seeds as a nutrient rich snack.

Resist the urge to fall into the 2pm or 3pm energy crash, jumping for that sugar loaded temptation. You will be paying double the price in the sugar slump after you consume... as it has a sugar energy boost but only for a brief time followed by a massive sugar crash...Instead, fuel your body with these good-for-you foods all day long, whether you incorporate them into your meals or enjoy them on their own during snack time.
