5 types of foods to help avoid the afternoon slump

Looking for long-lasting, all day, Energizer Bunny-style energy? Keep blood sugar levels steady by incorporating these food friends into your weekly meal plans. 

Fibres

Because your body can’t absorb and break down fibre, it doesn’t cause a spike in blood sugar levels in the same way other carbohydrates can. Get a good fibre hit in wholegrains like oats, brown rice or whole-wheat bread, fruits and vegetables,  legumes (like lentils and beans) or nuts + seeds. Want the good news? There's fibre in coffee + chocolate!

Plants

Veggies such as broccoli, spinach, kale and other leafy greens are high in dietary fibre and rich in magnesium, which both help to regulate blood sugar levels. 

And our naturally sweet fruit friends? Fruits are an amazing source of fibre, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which help balance their sweetness. Berries are relatively low sugar and are a super choice, for improved blood sugar control. 

Healthy Fats

Healthy fats give your body anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that can help regulate metabolism and, you guessed it, your blood sugar levels. Avo, extra virgin olive oil and full-fat yoghurts are some of our fav sources. 

Proteins

Proteins play a key role in boosting your brain power. Eggs, lean meats and seafood are classic sources, but you can also find protein in pasta, peanut butter and cheese too. (You can thank us later for that one.)  

Snacks

Snacks! Snacking consistently throughout your day is one of the best ways to keep those blood sugar levels stable and avoid any 3pm slumps. Super Bite, anyone?
