Top Five Energy-Boosting Foods

Posted:

Do you ever feel run down, long before your day is over?

Registered dietitian Jennifer Ventrelle said to escalate your energy level, start your day with a breakfast that's loaded with good carbs and protein. Then, you should eat every four hours.

Her top five energy boosters:

  • Nuts (almonds and walnuts, raw and unsalted) - great source of protein, potassium and magnesium
  • Blueberries - High in fiber, packed with quality carbohydrates
  • Salmon - Loaded with Omega 3 fatty acids
  • Kale - Rich in Vitamin K
  • Edamame (fresh or frozen) - good source of protein, high-quality carbohydrates and iron

Ventrelle's Avoid Em List:

  • Sweet cereal
  • Energy drinks
  • Coffee

And here is the Readers Digest list of foods that will make you sluggish:

  • Frozen tofu desserts
  • French bread
  • Red baked potatoes
  • Instant rice
  • Cornflakes
