Grazer or gorger. How do you eat through the day?

Grazing on healthy, nutrient-dense foods keeps your blood sugar levels even and insulin levels steady, resulting in more energy, vitality and an enhanced mental clarity and performance.

Avoid the 3pm slump

Often wondered why you reach for chocolate or biscuits at 3pm? When your blood sugar levels plummet, your hunger soars! When your hunger soars, your cravings kick in. If you eat foods during the day that are refined, like white bread, sugary cereals, pastries, white pasta or biscuits, which give you rapid sugar spikes, you’ll suffer the dreaded afternoon slump.
