Do you find yourself exhausted at the end of the day? Are you in need of a little extra energy? We are here to help you out by giving you a list of energy packed foods.
Breakfast Energy Boosters:
Whole Grain Cereal. When you eat it with low-fat milk, you can energize yourself for the entire day because whole grain cereal with low-fat milk has a perfect blend of protein and fiber. You will definitely feel the energy when you eat your whole grain cereal after working out. If you are trying to add more muscle to your figure, buy a cereal that includes iron ( which forms hemoglobin). Add some fresh strawberries and you will have a delicious and healthy breakfast while getting the vitamin C you need for the day.
Brown Rice. This type of rice can help boost your energy metabolism because it provides an excellent amount of magnesium and only takes 1 cup of cooked brown rice to give you that energy boost. For women 1 cup of rice can provide 1/4 of the magnesium you need in a day. For men, brown rice can provide 1/5 of the magnesium needed in a day.
As for beverages you can drink, try coffee and green tea. The green teach has a rich source of the amino acid L-theanine which can help you feel extra alert without experiencing the jitters you may have with drinking coffee. For coffee lovers, a cup of joe can reduce your likelihood of feeling depressed by 15 percent.
Lunch Energy Boosters
Salmon. This type of fish has a rich source of Omega-3s. What’s so great about Omega-3 fatty acids? Omega 3s can lower your risk of experiencing serious health problems. We highly recommend eating wild salmon because wild salmon has a great source of vitamins,minerals and Omega-3s.
Kale. It’s a vegetable full of vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and minerals your body needs daily.
Shellfish. It is a very nutritional seafood cuisine. Some popular shellfish you can eat are clams and oysters.
