Maintain your energy levels with the right diet
When it comes to keeping going throughout winter days, it can be a struggle. Darker days can make you feel tired and unmotivated, while cold weather leaves you with a longing for your bed or sofa rather than physical activity. Rather than giving in to the winter blues and wallowing in your low energy levels, you can give yourself a boost with a few changes to your daily diet.
Most important meal of the day
It’s true what they say, breakfast is the most vital meal you can eat as it sets you up for a full day. Quite often, losing steam early in the day can be down to an unsuitable breakfast. As well as leaving you tired, it can also affect your concentration and reaction time.
It is important to make sure you have a good solid breakfast - this doesn’t mean a daily fry up - that will keep you going. Rather than high fat and high sugar foods, go for a meal that has good levels of fibre or one that contains plenty of complex carbohydrates.
Wholegrain items - such as bread - are a good option, especially when teamed with fruit for natural sugars. Porridge is also a good choice for winter months as it will warm you up and the oats release energy slowly, setting you up until lunch.
Rather than going for large meals three times a day, try to make your meals smaller and eat snacks throughout the day. Not only can this stop you from feeling hungry - which often makes you reach for sugary and fatty foods - but it can keep your energy levels up.
Eating your meals at regular times can also help your body to regulate its energy and stop you feeling hungry and giving in to cravings.
Fruit and Veg
Eating fresh vegetables and fruits throughout a day means you are maintaining your levels of essential nutrients and vitamins that keep your body functioning correctly. Having fruit and vegetables as a snack and with meals can provide you with natural sugars and nutrients that will boost your energy levels, but will also help to improve your hair and skin; making you feel full of vitality.

- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hello Asma, Thank you for your message. Being a carrier oil, Pomegranate oil is safe to apply on the skin without dilution. However, because of its richness it is often used at dilutions of approximately 5-15% in skincare formulations. Combining Rosehip oil and pomegranate oil will give you a deeply nourishing blend of particularly antioxidant- and vitamin rich oils. It may also support scars, wrinkles and premature ageing. Hope this helps.
