Exhausted ? Eat These!

Try these foods to recharge your batteries:

Turkey

Turkey contains the amino acid tyrosine.  Research suggests that it helps to keep you alert while the B vitamins in turkey help your body turn the food into energy it can use.

Dried Apricots

Dried apricots are full of iron, so snack on a couple for an instant iron boost.  Low iron levels can leave you feeling wiped out.

Just don’t go overboard as dried fruit has a more concentrated natural sugar content. You can also find iron in meat, green leafy vegetables and legumes such as kidney beans.

Nut Butter

Nuts are full of B vitamins. Their protein and fibre content also provide the sustained fullness and energy to get you up and going.

Try a smear of nut butter on an apple slice or a raw carrot.  Yum!

Berries

Any fresh berries in season are a super healthy snack. They really rev your energy levels with adding too much sugar or fructose.  They should be the go to fruit of choice.  The sugar levels are lower than other fruits so enjoy guilt free.

Coriander

This fresh herb is full of B vitamins, C, A and beta-carotene. These nutrients help in the energy making process.  Coriander also contains lots of dietary iron and phytonutrients. Add plenty of fresh and chopped coriander in your cooking and enjoy.

Cayenne Pepper

Feel like a bit of heat?  Cayenne pepper is a delicious spice with a powerful punch. It’s super high in Vitamin C and phytonutrient antioxidants that can boost you metabolism.

Too hot for you? Try red capsicum for a milder flavour energy boost.
