When I see my niece running all day long and still being super energetic at the end of the day, I wish I could have the same energy level. Even though busy schedules, stress and sleep deprivation are the major causes of low energy and chronic fatigue, what you eat throughout the day can affect your energy levels as well. We often make bad food choices and wonder why it’s so hard for us to stay energetic and productive during the day. Eating the right foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner and making healthy snack choices can keep your energy levels high and provide many wonderful health benefits. Check out my list of the best energy-boosting foods that will help you fight fatigue, stay productive and healthy each day.
1. Greek yogurt
While plain regular yogurt is a good energy-boosting food, plain Greek yogurt is a healthier one. It contains more protein, healthy carbs and fats than regular yogurt, which means you will feel more energetic if you snack on Greek yogurt in the middle of the day. Eating Greek yogurt for breakfast helps to fight morning fatigue and bad mood. If you are not a big fan of Greek yogurt, you can use it in your favorite meals and snacks to reap all its benefits without realizing it. You can use it in your favorite fruit salad or fruit smoothies. Many people use Greek yogurt in their soups too.
