We can all use more energy during the day. With busy work schedules, family and school it’s easy to grab unhealthy processed foods for a quick sugar rush. Try these 4 healthy foods for a natural energy boost:
Brown Rice—Get a good dose of manganese, a mineral that helps produce energy from protein and carbs. Brown Rice can be a healthy side dish option for lunch or dinner.
Honey—Add honey as a natural sweetener to breakfast or lunch to help replenish muscles post-workout. According to Women’s Day Magazine, a spoonful of honey is nature’s equivalent to an energy drink.
Spinach—Provides a good source of iron, a major component in energy production in the body.
Oranges—Provides vitamin C, potassium and folate which help to supply your body with energy steadily over time. Substitute your mid-day snack for an orange to keep you upbeat and alert throughout the day.
Choose these natural alternatives to maintain your energy each day to remain active and productive.
