Your 24-hour guide to eat­ing for en­ergy

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

Time to move

Drink a big glass of wa­ter to re­hy­drate. Then, get a head start on the day with 30–45 min­utes of ex­er­cise, such as a brisk walk or a yoga class.

Balanced brekkie

A com­bi­na­tion of pro­tein, carbs and healthy fats gives you the en­ergy to power through your morn­ing and also keeps you full for longer.

Pit stop

Skip the muf­fin or cake with your morn­ing cof­fee, and in­stead pour out a big glass of wa­ter to go with it.

Morn­ing munchies

Snack on a piece of fruit and small hand­ful of nuts, which are rich in en­er­gis­ing B vi­ta­mins and fi­bre to keep you sat­is­fied un­til lunch.

Light lunch

Avoid a heavy lunch as it will zap your en­ergy while your body works hard to di­gest it. In­stead, in­clude com­plex carbs such as whole­grain bread or canned beans.
