What to eat for more energy | Velettà skincare

3 Recipes for Energy


Are you someone who often finds themselves lacking in energy, no matter what you do? Perhaps you lead a pretty busy life, and you struggle to find the time to eat food that is packed with nutrition. Most of us have busy, stressful lives these days, which require a lot of energy. Are we getting all the energy that we need from our food?

If you find yourself locked into a 3 o’clock slump and can’t quite help wishing that the day would go by faster, we’re with you. It’s not easy, but there are ways to make sure your diet is packed full of foods that can boost your energy. Let’s check some out.

Not only do these recipes need to provide a lot of energy, but they also need to be easy to make, and great for keeping you full.

  1. Sweet Potatoes with Chickpea Sauce

Like us, do you love your sweet potatoes? If so, then you'll know that they are a great choice for convenience and energy. It's super easy to make a few baked sweet potatoes at the beginning of the week and save them for later.

This way, later on in the week, you can quickly throw together this awesome recipe with a super nutritious salad and a sauce to make a healthy meal that is full of the best type of energy. Sweet potatoes offer high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as a lot of fiber to keep you nice and regular. Whether you pack this healthy meal away for lunch tomorrow or heat it up for a quick dinner at the end of a stressful day, this convenient, handy recipe is sure to keep you going. 

  1. Crunchy Quinoa Oatmeal with Strawberries

How much do you love your oatmeal? Is it something that you could eat every day because we think that we could! Oatmeal is a great, low GI addition to a lot of sweet breakfast treats that can set you up for success at the beginning of the day.

One of the things that we love about oatmeal is that you can have it with almost anything you like. From pineapple to strawberry and even grapefruit, pair your oatmeal with all kinds of different toppings. This caramelized strawberry recipe will satisfy those of you that have a sweet tooth, but you can literally add anything to it.

Either soak your oats overnight or cook them in the morning. There's no better way to start the day.

  1. Almond Banana Energy Bars

Looking for an easy, convenient way to get some good nutrition into your body? One of the biggest things we might struggle with throughout the day is snacking. If you’re on the run and always have something to do, you’ll be hoping that what you snack on is going to give you the energy to make it to the next meal.

However, it’s often difficult to find snacks on the run that are nutritious and full of energy. Bananas offer a great level of slow-releasing energy, as well as potassium. Almonds come with a lot of healthy fats, as well as protein and fiber. Check out this energy bar recipe for an on the go snack that is delicious and nutritious.
