What Can I Eat For Energy on My Sluggish Days?
May people find themselves wondering what to eat for energy. We all have those days when getting out of bed seems damn near impossible. Every muscle and bone feels likes it weighted down with a ton of bricks and our eyes won't cooperate and open up. Even once your up and at em you feel like your in haze and your cup of coffee feels like you skipped the caffeine and went straight to the crash.
While most causes of fatigue are treated through several different steps, I thought I would talk about what simple kinds of food you can eat for energy throughout the day.
Below, I have complied a list a different foods which will help keep you going. It is really important to stay hydrated and not skips meals since these are known energy drainers.
Breakfast is an important meal that can determine your level of energy for the rest of the day. Get yourself off on the right foot with even some small snacks of these energy boosting foods. Make sure to continue eating throughout the day. Eat three well balanced and portioned meals and also two small snacks.
In order to maximize the energy boosting effects mix complex carbohydrates with lean protein or low fat dairy, fresh fruit, and vegetables or some well balanced combination of these types of food. Here are some ideas:
- Hard boiled eggs and whole grain toast
- Cereal, fresh fruit, and yogurt ( Be careful for the fat and calories on the yogurt)
- Oatmeal ( you can also add fresh fruit and prepare with low fat milk instead of water)
- Whole grain bagel
- Salad (use only 2 tablespoons low calorie dressing)
- Baked potato with salsa
- Sweet potato
- Black beans
- Whole wheat pasta
- Brown rice
- Dried fruits( great when your in a rush)
If you are fatigued due to low iron you can also try these foods:
