There’s a saying that when you eat heavy, you’ll feel heavy.  Remember how we use to feel after eating lots of bread, fatty/fried foods, pasta, etc.? After about an hour of feeling like our bellies are going to explode, we begin to feel sluggish and tired. That’s because our bodies are working overtime trying to break down all of that stuff! As a result, we start to feel fatigued and low on energy.

Eating high-energy foods is the simplest and easiest way to an energy boost! But what is considered high-energy foods?

Dark Chocolate

Put down the coffee and pick up some dark chocolate. It provides an excellent source of magnesium and iron.



Bananas are packed with glucose and fructose which provides tons of energy when absorbed. Bananas are also packed with sucrose. Sucrose keeps the sugar levels steady, ensuring your energy levels doesn’t crash.



Avocados have that “good” monounsaturated fat and plenty of health-boosting nutrients to help your body thrive.



Put away those chips and pick up a handful of almonds. These special nuts are packed with a potent combination of energy-enriching nutrients, including vitamin E.




An apple doesn’t provide the stimulation that coffee can, but it does fuel your body with more energy while helping to stabilize blood sugar. An apple keeps you going because it contains calories and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins and minerals.




Asparagus is high in B vitamins, which naturally support healthy energy levels by turning food (carbs) into fuel (glucose), and it contains plenty of blood sugar-steadying fiber.



Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein and vitamins B6, B12, niacin, and D. All of which are needed for energy production.
