These are some of the best foods to boost your energy every morning
Possibly the king of fruits the small berry provides great amounts of fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These phytonutrients play a key role in preventing disease and keeping the body running normally. They are a perfect thing to start the day off because:
high levels of vitamin C
cancer fighting properties
improve heart health
boost brain function and cognitive health
The portable and consistent banana is still a top choice for energy and a classic breakfast food. Bananas are technically giant herbs rather than trees and have been quite hybridized over the centuries. An original banana you might not even recognize due to its smaller size, color and vast amount of seeds that made it almost inedible. Bananas as we know them still are one of the best energy and nutrition sources around. Among their many benefits include:
high in antioxidants
can provide relief from heartburn and acid reflux
high in potassium
can act as a pre-biotic to grow healthy bacteria
lowers blood pressure
contain the mood boosting amino acid tryptophan
Another powerhouse food almonds are packed with:
Besides providing energy one of their big draws is ability to lower cholesterol as well as reducing the risks of cancer and heart disease. Interestingly a 3/4 cup of almonds has as much calcium as an 8oz cup of either low-fat, skim or whole milk. They are great raw, as almond butter or almond milk. Some people like to soak almonds over night or for up to 12 hours to help aid in the digestion of them.
Another long standing classic at breakfast and for pretty good reason. It has high levels of soluble fiber, protein, can lower cholesterol and can help control blood pressure. I would say it is by far the best choice of all grains but if you have celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity you still might want to be careful. Some people can still have some issues and a lot of oats are known to have traces of wheat in them as they are usually packaged in the same facilities. Look for organic completely gluten free oats to be on the safe side.
