Some meals make me feel more energetic after eating than others. There are of course tons of great articles for eating for training and overall health, but not as many dedicated to principles that underlie what makes you feel better in the moment (would help a lot at work!).
While I know some of the basic ideas that contribute to this feeling (e.g., modest glycemic index and load, relatively high protein), I was wondering if there are articles dedicated to principles of nutrition specifically regarding how the meal affects your energy/focus/mood. There are some lists of individual ideas for good things to eat, but not many regarding general principles so that I can design my own recipes around these principles. Thanks!
