The focus of my posts this week is to show foods that provide sufficient amounts of energy to help us power through day as well providing a feeling of fullness.
On this point, I promised to make my son Charlie some turkey burgers last night so had to pick up some burger rolls on my way home. I ended up actually buying these fantastic fresh mini loaves from a great grocery store here in Brooklyn called Union Market that are made with simple ingredients: wholewheat flour, honey, olive oil, flax seeds, rye, sesame seed and sunflower seeds, oats and millet. Super clean carbs eating with slow energy release properties from the wholegrain.
I tend to avoid wheat these days as I can have problems digesting it but these were so tempting that I kept one over for lunch today and made this simple but delicious sandwich with an egg salad, spinach, cucumber and tomato filling.
I’ve found I need to eat carbs like this in the morning & middle of the day (rather than the evening) to sustain me & prevent the tiredness/low energy crash that can occur mid afternoon. It works really well for me as I’m usually out and physically active in the afternoon & so need the energy that carbs release to tide me over till the evening.
Not much else to add except that I hope you have a great Tuesday:).
