Foods That Can Give You More Energy
(Nutrition) 3 months ago

Many people feel tired or rundown at some point during the day. A lack of energy could affect your daily activities and make you less productive.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the type and quantity of food you eat play essential roles in determining your energy levels during the day.

Even though all foods give you energy, some foods contain nutrients that could help increase your energy levels and maintain your alertness and focus throughout the day.

 

Bananas may be one of the best foods for energy. They’re an excellent source of complex carbs, potassium, and vitamin B6, all of which can help boost your energy levels


Fatty fish like salmon and tuna are good sources of protein, fatty acids, and B vitamins, making them great foods to include in your diet.

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation, which is a common cause of fatigue

Brown rice is a very nutritious food. Compared with white rice, it’s less processed and retains more nutritional value in the form of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

One-half cup (50 grams) of brown rice contains 2 grams of fiber and provides a large portion of your recommended daily intake (RDI) of manganese, a mineral that helps enzymes break down carbs and proteins to generate energy


Aside from being delicious, sweet potatoes are a nutritious source of energy for those looking for an extra boost.

A 1-cup (100-gram) serving of sweet potatoes could pack up to 25 grams of complex carbs, 3.1 grams of fiber, 25% of the RDI for manganese, and a whopping 564% of the RDI for vitamin A

Coffee might be the first food you’d think to consume when you’re looking for an energy boost.

It’s rich in caffeine, which can quickly pass from your bloodstream into your brain and inhibit the activity of adenosine, a neurotransmitter that quiets the central nervous system

Eggs are not only a tremendously satisfying food but also full of energy that can help fuel your day.

They’re packed with protein, which can give you a steady and sustained source of energy.

Apples are one of the most popular fruits in the world, and they’re a good source of carbs and fiber.

A medium-sized apple (100 grams) contains about 14 grams of carbs, 10 grams of sugar, and up to 2.1 grams of fiber

Water is essential for life. It’s involved in many cellular functions, including energy production

Not drinking enough water may lead to dehydration, which can slow bodily functions, leaving you feeling sluggish and tired

Dark chocolate has a higher cocoa content than regular or milk chocolate.

The antioxidants in cocoa have been shown to have many health benefits, such as increasing blood flow throughout your body

Yogurt is an excellent snack to fuel your day.

The carbs in yogurt are mainly in the form of simple sugars, such as lactose and galactose. When broken down, these sugars can provide ready-to-use energy.
