Choosing Healthy Foods to Boost Energy Levels

By Stephen R. Farris

A lot of people opt to skip the morning meal and swig down an energy drink from the convenience store on their way to work or school. Sure, that drink may give you a quick boost of energy, but by mid-morning, you start to develop that sluggish feeling. By lunchtime, you're almost completely drained. 

That's not good if you still have the afternoon to go. So now you're wondering how to change that. It's simple. Start eating foods that help keep your energy levels up, and that are more healthier for you.

Bananas

If you're constantly on the go, the next time you go shopping at the grocery store pick up a bunch of bananas. Bananas are a quick and easy snack, and contain carbs, Vitamin B6, and potassium, all which act as a natural energy booster. Take one with you to work and have it as a mid-morning snack to help keep the energy levels boosted.

Fatty Fish

Protein, fatty acids, and a good combo of B vitamins combine to boost your energy levels. While not exactly a morning staple, you could prep the night before and take some salmon or tuna (both great sources for omega-3 fatty acids) and add some type of green leafy vegetable. Take it to work and you have your lunch ready to heat up. 

Coffee

Coffee is the most popular morning drink in the world. You've probably heard that coffee is not good for you. Well, that may hold true if you drink more than 4 cups per day. Studies recommend that you are allowed one to two cups per day. The caffeine found in coffee can actually give you focus and help you stay alert, thus boosting your energy levels to a degree.

Eggs

Eggs are a great source of protein and B vitamins, and they help break down food to turn it into energy. Eggs are easy to prepare. You can hard-boil them, scrabble them, poach them, or fix them sunny side up. To make them even more nutritious, beat a couple of eggs then pour them into a pan and add some onion, chopped green leafy vegetables, some mushrooms and you have yourself a delicious, healthy omelet.

The main thing is to eat healthy and keep your energy levels boosted in order to be as productive at work or school as possible..
