There are many factors at play in your post-lunch slump: low blood sugar, tiredness, the prospect of a few more hours stuck at work! Some researchers believe that our serotonin levels may also dip at this point in the day.
Crashing? Starchy carbs help to reverse this. Swap your usual snack for a thick layer of peanut butter on toast. Peanuts contain tryptophan, which plays a vital role in serotonin production.
So... keep spreading good energy®
