The Top 7 Energy Foods for Busy People

Quick pick-me-ups that are guaranteed to recharge your body!

Being busy and maintaining a healthy diet should go hand in hand, but when we get busy, priorities often shift and healthy habits can slip away.

If you don't want to compromise a healthy diet with your busy lifestyle, then these powerhouse ingredients are a quick pick-me-up that are guaranteed to recharge your body and stay alert all day:

 

Full of antioxidants called anthocyanin’s which are responsible for their deep red or purple hue. Anthocyanin’s are currently under research for anti-inflammatory and potential heart health benefits. Cherries are also a rich source of melatonin, a hormone that may improve quality of sleep. It’s important to note, however that studies in relation to sleep have used Montmorency tart cherry juice, and further research is needed.

  

By including a protein at your breakfast meal you can help to balance blood sugar and keep hunger at bay. Protein can help to slow the rate at which a carbohydrate will break down into sugar, which is a perfect way of obtaining sustained energy all morning long.

 

Green tea contains a special substance called L-Theanine, which has been shown to stimulate a feeling of relaxed alertness and clarity. Swapping your espresso for a cup of matcha could provide a brain and energy boost without the jitters that come with excess caffeine.

 

All carbohydrates break down to sugar, but it’s only the fibre-rich slow release carbohydrates such as oats, which provide sustained fuel to the body and brain. Make the most out of your breakfast with these porridge recipes that won't take you more than 5 minutes!

  

Did you know that strawberries come with more vitamin C per 100g in comparison to oranges? Vitamin C is essential for strengthening the immune system and combating tiredness and fatigue. Top this onto your overnight oats, snack on these after your lunch, or drink PRESS' Orchard 1 for your hit of vitamin C!

    

Not only is chocolate super tasty, but high quality dark chocolate is also a source of magnesium which is an important mineral required for energy production.

 

Dark green leafy vegetables such a kale provide a rich source of iron. Iron is an essential mineral needed for energy production. Iron deficiency is an often-missed cause of fatigue. If you don't enjoy eating kale as a salad, then it might be worth opting for PRESS' green cold-pressed juices (Sweet Greens and Greenhouse 3), which both comprise of kale!
