Get some energy in you! And I don’t mean coffee, or Red Bull, or any of that.
No, no, no!!!
What I am talking about is getting energy from eating foods that help boost your levels and keep you going from morning to afternoon. Eating what you should, when you should, to avoid the slump!
I created a simple list of examples for energy boosting foods for you to try.
-half of a whole wheat bagel with peanut butter
-eggs with whole wheat toast and honey
-cereal with low-fat milk
-oat bran muffin
-whole wheat pancakes topped with fruit
-Greek yogurt with granola
-peanut butter sandwich on whole wheat
-Half an apple with low-fat cottage cheese
-banana with peanut butter
-hummus and red bell peppers
Avoid a big lunch
-brown rice with salmon
-turkey sandwich on wheat bread with veggies
-build a high-energy salad with dark leafy greens (spinach), colorful array of veggies, and a small amount of protein like chickpeas or grilled chicken
-protein and fat as well as carbs
-half a turkey sandwich
-peanut butter crackers
-green tea with a teaspoon of honey
-fruit and cheese
Keep your fats low, but don’t omit
Don’t skip meals
Eat smaller amounts
Get vitamin B 12 and iron
Try eating 2 snacks, 1 mid-morning and 1 mid-afternoon.
Most important of all, drink plenty of water.
I hope you find this list useful! These should keep you feeling energized throughout your day.
