Do you struggle with the famous "afternoon slump"? Wished you could stop overeating in the evening? Or perhaps you're just constantly grazing on sweets and not sure how to stop?
If that sounds like you, chances are your blood sugar levels need a little bit of attention.
Our bodies thrive on balance and chronic lack of balance may result in your body ‘going on a strike’ in one area or another. Whether you’d love some more energy, less stress and anxiety or better sleep, blood sugar balance is the answer.
‘Blood sugar balance’ sounds like it has a lot to do with sugar, right?
Not quite. It’s much bigger than just the sugar consumption itself. In fact, it’s how your body takes up glucose and regulates energy. And because this fluctuation of energy affects every single system of your body, you want to make sure you do everything you possibly can to manage it naturally.
Aim to keep your blood sugar fluctuations through the day to small consistent waves, rather than tsunami crashes, as it’s easier for the body to manage energy, moods and other functions that way.
So if you’re confused about what to have for breakfast, use some of my favourite breakfast options for inspiration:
Toasted rye bread with avocado, boiled egg and chili powder
Sugar-free overnight oats with protein powder, berries and seeds
Coconut cinnamon granola with coconut yoghurt
Breakfast banana pancakes with protein powder
Huevos rancheros Mexican eggs.
And only in one week, watch your energy, moods and stress levels calm down.
Who knows, you might even rediscover that you’re a morning person?
