How to Beat the Midday Slump With Healthy Meals from Whole Harvest

plant-based diet and mid-day slump

We all know it can be difficult to find the time (or motivation) to prepare a healthy, delicious lunch that doesn’t lead to the dreaded midday slump. That’s why meals from Whole Harvest are such a convenient option. Not only do Whole Harvest meals remove the stress and time from preparing a healthy meal for yourself, but they also provide many health benefits to fuel your day.

Less Sugar

Eating sugar causes your blood sugar to rise rapidly. This can result in an instant energy boost; however, when sugar is introduced into the bloodstream, the body also makes insulin which lowers blood sugar levels. Sometimes your body can over adjust, causing your blood sugar level to drop rapidly. This leads to a drop in energy about 30 minutes after eating too much sugar.

More Energy

The type of food you eat plays an essential role in your energy levels during the day. This is because different kinds of foods are converted to energy at different rates. For example, candy and other simple sugars can give you a quick boost of energy but healthy fats and proteins give you lasting energy throughout the day.

Better Mood

Research suggests a close relationship between diet and mood. If you eat food packed with vegetables, fruit, and whole grains then you are more likely to feel more engaged and in a better mood.

Reduced Anxiety and Stress

Your body can handle stress better when you are eating nutritiously and fueling it properly. Healthy meals are exactly what your body needs to overcome all the daily stressors with ease.

At Whole Harvest, we believe in making healthy eating easier for everyone. Let us help you avoid that midday energy slump with our healthy meals.
