For slow-release energy, a bowl of raw organic oatmeal with nut mylk and organic berries is brilliant. Nourishing and satisfying, oat’sslow releasing complex carbohydrates help sustain energy levels whilst stabilising and slowly raising blood sugar level, so you can work out efficiently for longer.


A healthy metabolism provides the body with energy, which is why we included powerful kelp as an active ingredient in our SUPER ELIXIR Greens. A nutrient-rich sea plant, kelp contains iodine to stimulate the thyroid and boost a healthy metabolism. Simply add 2 heaped teaspoons of SUPER ELIXIR to filtered water two to three hours before working out.


Need something small, delicious but powerful? Dark chocolate contains theobromine (similar to caffeine) which is effective in boosting energylevels. Choose very dark chocolate (Elle loves Green & Blacks 85% Organic) for less sugar and more energy. And try and limit yourself to just a couple of squares.


Ok not food but your most blaring wake-up call. An espresso or cup of green tea is perfect for fighting fatigue and getting you out of bed and into your workout gear. It is also beneficial during your workout because it increases your core body temperature so you use more energy.
