15 Jul Tip 5- Is Your Salad Making You Tired?
Eating veggies at lunch is a good way to get vitamins, minerals and fiber. But if veggies are all you eat, your energy will last for less than an hour and you will find yourself needing sugar to regain your focus and concentration. You also need some fat with your salad to help your body absorb nutrients from the veggies.
Today’s tip: Add a hard boiled egg, beans or lean chicken or tuna to your salad. The extra protein and fat will double the amount of energy you will get from your meal. The small amount of fat will help you to absorb more nutrients from your veggies.
