Sharing some of my favorites that will be sure to keep your energy levels up!
This is probably one of the best foods for energy! Bananas contain complex carbs, potassium, and vitamin B6, all of which can help boost energy.
Salmon and tuna are good sources of protein + fatty acids, making them great foods to include in your diet. I personally always like to include salmon in my salads, especially for lunch!
Eggs are a great source of protein + iron. When iron levels are low, your cells don’t get the oxygen they need, which leaves you feeling tired. Eggs can give you a steady and sustained source of energy.
One of my go-to snacks, apples are a good source of carbs + fiber. Because of the natural sugar, they provide a slow and sustained energy release.
5. Dark Chocolate
Dark chocolate contains caffeine and theobromine, both will boost your energy levels. I tend to have a few pieces of dark chocolate vs coffee because it boosts energy in a milder and longer-lasting way than caffeine. Just don’t go overboard haha
Yogurt makes a great snack or ingredient to include in your morning smoothie. Yogurt contains vitamin B12, which helps beat fatigue.
If coffee tends to make you jittery, try matcha! The combination of caffeine with L-theanine will boost your energy, improve focus, and alertness.
Avocados are a superfood because they are rich in healthy fats, B vitamins, and fiber. Healthy fats can be stored in the body and used as energy sources.
Chia seeds, flax seeds + pumpkin seeds are also known to boost energy levels. Throw them in smoothies, oatmeal, or overnight oats!
Beans are rich in nutrients and a great source of natural energy. All beans have similar nutrients and are packed with carbs, fiber, and protein.
