5 Foods that boost your energy

During a summer heat wave it becomes harder and harder to feel energized.  After a long hot day most of us just feel like slouching on the couch or having a nap.  Here are some foods that will promote energy production,help you retain  more energy, and leave you feeling rejuvenated.

1. Oatmeal – The fiber in oatmeal helps you to get a long stream of energy.  This is a healthy food because it makes digestion easier on your body and also stabilizes your blood sugar levels.  The complex carbohydrates in oats are not like the simple carbohydrates that turn into fat and make you feel drowsy.  Instead they are absorbed more slowly into the body therefore stabilize blood sugar levels and provide you with lasting energy.  Oats contain vitamin B which helps to transform carbohydrates into energy that your body can use.

2. Nuts – Nuts like peanuts and almonds are packed with protein that gives you lasting energy.  Snack on almonds during the 2pm slump and add peanut butter to your oatmeal for optimum energy.

3. Water – It’s not a food, but it’s the most important item on this list.  Without water, your body can’t even generate energy.  Water allows your body to digest, transport, and absorb nutrients.  If you are dehydrated, your body cells can’t function to efficiently receive nutrients. This leads to fatigue.  Try to drink as much water a day as you can to keep yourself hydrated and energized.

4. Pineapple – The fructose in pineapple breaks down quickly for an instant energy boost while the fiber slows down digestion and gives you long lasting energy.  In addition the manganese and thiamin are both crucial to energy production and the vitamin B6 helps the body create the hormone serotonin that boosts your mood! Pineapple can also prevent dehydration – a main cause of fatigue in most individuals

5. Yogurt – Yogurt will give you an immediate boost of energy because it is easily and quickly absorbed into the body.  The high protein levels in yogurt ensure that it will give you long lasting energy. Yogurt is full of calcium, protein, zinc, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, phosphorus, tryptophan, and molybdenum.
