Energy Boosting Foods

Energy Drinks

The amount of energy you have throughout the day is a direct result of how you are nourishing your body with the food you eat. Many people tend to reach for energy drinks and chocolate bars to put the bounce in their step, but the reality is that you can get more energy from foods with healthier ingredients.


Caffeine is the most widely consumed stimulant in the world. Researchers from the School of Medicine at John Hopkins University are concerned because the caffeine in popular energy drinks ranges from 50 mg to 505 mg per can or bottle. This much caffeine can raise blood pressure, disrupt sleep habits, aggravate psychiatric conditions, and induce reliance.


Instead of reaching for an energy drink everyday, prevent energy dips by sticking with a consistent diet of complex carbohydrates, fiber, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water. Here are a couple naturally wholesome foods that will keep your energy up throughout the day.


  1. Oats - Bursting with fiber, oats will give you a constant flow of energy throughout the day. Mix it in your homemade granola or breakfast smoothie.

  2. Lean Steak - A small serving size of lean red meat can give you the iron and energy your body is craving.

  3. Yogurt - Its magnesium content makes carbohydrate metabolism more efficient which will give you a boost of explosive energy. We recommend reaching for low-fat or greek yogurt

  4. Bananas - With a delicious source of potassium, bananas contain readily-digestible sugars which make it a great “emergency snack” when your energy is feeling low.

  5. Chocolate - Yes, it’s true, chocolate is a good source of energy. Reach for dark chocolate because it contains high levels of antioxidants.
