Eat breakfast

A big breakfast that has slow-release carbohydrates such as porridge but includes protein as well. So sprinkle on seeds or have wholemeal toast with tomatoes and mushrooms.

It’s not white

Refined carbohydrates like white bread, rice or pasta have had fibre and nutrients removed and are therefore readily absorbed leaving you craving for more and have low energy.

Caffeine low
