Afternoon slump? Try this all natural superfood pick me up.
May 07, 20151 min read
We've all been there. It's 3.30 pm and your brain cells are refusing to cooperate. You know you're not really hungry as you had a good lunch and maybe even a recent snack. But still you need a little something....
Instead of reaching for another coffee or a chocolate bar try this instead: one or two tablespoons of coconut oil. Nothing could be simpler.
Why it works: The fat in coconut oil is medium chain triglycerides (MCT) and is metabolized differently to other fats. MCTs are more easily and rapidly absorbed by the body and easily used (burned) for energy. Because of this accelerated use the calories in coconut oil are more likely to be immediately used by the organs, muscles and brain -- and not stored as fat.
I blend coconut oil in my coffee every morning and it gives a great energy high.
In addition coconut oil is genuinely satisfying. The fat gives a sense of fullness and the slightly sweet taste kills sugar cravings.
Add an extra superfood bang by topping your coconut oil with bee pollen. Another bone-fide superfood bee pollen contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. It is rich in protein, vitamins, vitamin B and folic acid, just to name a few.
Pollen is also a tasty treat in its own right. Try to choose locally sourced pollen. Being exposed potential local allergens in controlled doses may increase your resistance to hayfever come spring.
