5 Foods to Give you Slow Releasing Energy

If you want a quick-fix for flagging energy levels then forget sugar, white flour and even sushi. These acid-forming foods will cause blood sugar spikes and leave you feeling flat as a pancake by 4 pm. Instead, choose foods that promote blood sugar balance – think fibre, protein and good quality fats.

Quinoa: This protein packed grain delivers slow release energy and promises longer life, according to a Harvard study published earlier this year. Researchers found that eating a bowl of quinoa daily reduces your risk of premature death by 17 per cent[1]. Rich in alkalizing minerals such as manganese, magnesium and copper, quinoa is pure gluten-free goodness.

Sweet Potato: Roasted sweet potatoes will satisfy your sweet cravings without the slump. Rich in fibre, Beta-carotene, amino acids and vitamins A, C and B6 they are an excellent source of slow release carbs.

Eggs: When you eat two eggs in the morning you cut the number of calories you consume over the next 36 hours.[2] The combination of protein and fat keeps hunger at bay while the vitamins and minerals keep your brain ticking.

Porridge: Pictures of creamy oats are all over Instagram and for good reason. The combination of good fats, carbohydrates, B vitamins and beta-glucans will fire up your immune system and keep you fuller for longer. Sprinkle with bee pollen, make with Matcha or mix with almond milk for a more alkaline bowl.

Chia Pudding: These fibre rich seeds gel up in your stomach, slowing down the rate your body breaks down carbohydrates. Beauty bonus? Chia seeds contain biotin for bouncier fuller hair.
