This chapter is based on the third chakra known as the solar plexus, manipura. The purpose of the third chakra is to transform the matter of the first chakra and the energy of the second chakra into a conscious direction of activity. It’s in this chakra that our energy systems come into play.

Our adrenal health (our ability to respond to stress) is a crucial element in maintaining a balanced energy system and we can maintain it through our diets; this is achieved by the reduction or elimination of simple carbohydrates, replacing them instead with complex carbohydrates containing both fibre and starch. These are both then converted into energy within the body, which is slowly released over a longer period of time and ensures we maintain our energy stores and adrenal health.

The recipes in this chapter have been designed to showcase some of the best foods to help you feel satisfied and energised for the whole day. The recipes feature carbohydrates such as sweet potato, legumes, chickpeas, oats and other whole grains. This chapter also focuses on naturally metabolism-boosting foods, such as cinnamon, almonds and spinach as well as fiery, energetic foods such as turmeric, ginger and chilli. They are not only highly nutritious, complex carbohydrates but are also awesome at maintaining healthy energy stores.
