10 Foods to Keep You Energized Throughout the Day

Do you often find that you have less energy? Life can be quite drag when you are feeling  fatigue and can hardly keep your eyelids propped open. Let’s have a look at the top energizing foods that you should be consuming.

Are you feeling a little run-down lately? If you are feeling fatigued, don’t grab an energy drink or reach for the second, third, or—dare I say—fourth cup of coffee. Instead, gain natural, all-day energy from delicious, nutrient-dense foods that will help you power through your workday and still leave you energized for the evening. Unlike coffee and sugary energy drinks, real food won’t interrupt your sleep or leave you feeling jittery. Meals and snacks that contain lean protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats will give you all-day energy so you can be your best self.

Steel-Cut Oats

Oats are loaded with energizing fiber, both soluble and insoluble, as well as beta-glucans. Beta-glucan is a type of soluble fiber that helps regulate your blood sugar levels, keeping your energy up all day. Steel-cut oats also provide protein, and their hearty texture is more satisfying than quick oats.

Dark Chocolate

To reap the most benefits, seek out chocolate with at least 75 percent cacao or higher. The higher the percentage of cacao, the more antioxidants and less sugar it contains. Dark chocolate contains an energy-lifting, mood-boosting nutrient called theobromine, as well as a very small amount of caffeine (not enough to cause jitters or disrupt sleep).
