How to beat the 3pm slump?

Post-lunch sleepiness can stem from a dip in your core body temperature that naturally happens between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. It's a dip that triggers the release of a snooze-inducing hormone called melatonin. It's a normal part of your body's circadian rhythm.

Need a pick me up to get through the 3pm slump? 😴

It’s chocolate week on #GBBO@britishbakeoff this week and I made this delicious #vegan millionaire slices to help me get through the day and give me the energy boost I need at mid-afternoon with my thermo mix or kitchen appliance that is 22 appliances in one.

Super easy and fast recipe I have adapted to the #Thermomix. Thanks @suspor for the inspiration. Great to have so many Thermo mix lovers in Cork but also other parts of Ireland like Waterford, Kerry, Galway, Kilkenny. A really nice community that inspire each other to cook healthier meals every day.
