We all know that it can be difficult to find the time to prepare a healthy, delicious lunch that doesn’t lead to the dreaded mid-day crash. That’s why grab and go meals from Whole Harvest are such a good option. Not only do grab and go meals remove the stress and time from preparing a healthy meal for yourself, but they also provide many health benefits to fuel your day.
Eating sugar causes your blood sugar to rise rapidly. This can result in an instant energy boost, however, when sugar is introduced into the bloodstream, the body also makes insulin. This lowers blood sugar levels. Sometimes the body over-adjusts itself, causing the blood sugar level to drop rapidly. This leads to a drop in energy about 30 minutes after eating too much sugar.
The type of food you eat plays an essential role in determining your energy levels during the day. This is because different kinds of foods are converted to energy at different rates. For example, candy and other simple sugars can give you a quick boost of energy but healthy fats and proteins help to give you lasting energy throughout the day.
There is evidence to suggest a close relationship between diet and mood. If you eat food packed with vegetables, fruit and whole grains then you are more likely to feel more engaged and in a better mood.
