Top 5 High-Powered Energy Foods

Top 5 High-Powered Energy Foods

1. Healthy Fats

Omega-3 fatty acids are known as essential fats because your body can’t make them and you have to get them through food – but they’re also essential to high-energy living. They help reduce inflammation in the body, which can be a cause of fatigue, plus they can boost your mood. Omega-3s are found in fatty fish, flaxseeds, chia, hemp and walnuts.

2. Organic Fruit

Berries in particular are a great source of energy-enhancing polyphenols, antioxidants that provide a wide array of health benefits including reducing inflammation and supporting immunity and detoxification.

3. Colorful Organic Vegetables

Vegetables are not only packed with blood sugar–balancing fiber, but they also contain potent nutrients such as iron, magnesium and free radical–fighting antioxidants that can help enhance energy levels. Opt for a wide variety of colors to get a broad range of these nutrients.

4. Coffee and Tea

While too much caffeine can be problematic, coffee and tea have many health-promoting benefits including improving mood and supporting healthy brain function. Although some people are more sensitive to the effects of caffeine than others, the recommended maximum daily amount is 400 milligrams (about 4 cups of coffee or 5 cups of tea), according to the American Medical Association Council on Scientific Affairs.

5. A Better Breakfast

Think of getting high-quality protein and fruits or vegetables every time you sit down for your morning meal. Also make sure any grains you’re eating are whole, avoiding refined varieties. Oatmeal, eggs and unsweetened Greek yogurt with berries are much better options for your blood sugar levels than a bagel and cream cheese.
