Food for Energy – Hypoglycemia
Maybe instead you feel nauseous, experience heart palpitations, light-headed, headaches, or even feel nervous or anxious.
If this resonates with you in any way you may be experiencing hypoglycemia.
Hypoglycemia occurs when blood glucose levels drop low in the blood – and you don’t have to be considered a diabetic for it to occur.
For most people it’s often caused by not eating enough of the “good foods”, and not eating them often enough. By “good foods” I mean nutrient dense, whole foods – foods full of natural vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins and complex carbohydrates that feed our body to create energy, not take it away.
Consuming a mix of good fats, good proteins, and complex carbs will help to even out those sugar highs and lows, and get you off the sugar roller coaster. Many of us need a boost every now and then, but reaching for the caffeine/sugar hit too often will actually reduce your energy.
By all means have your morning coffee, but have it with a healthy breakfast too. You might like one of these from our website:
• Bacon and Egg cupcakes
• Pear, Cinnamon & Chia seed porridge
• Grain Free Breakfast mix
• Vanilla and pear smoothie
As for snacks – munch on nuts and seeds, avocado or nut butters with veggie sticks, boiled eggs, meat balls, fruits, yoghurts, and cheeses. (There are more snack ideas and recipes on our website here too.)
