Seasons change and so does your mood; in order to stay healthy & energized during the cold season it’s best to try some highly nutritious ingredients.
Find out which are the best ones for you and how you can enjoy them.
You might see it as rather common, but in reality, water is the essence of life and energy. Not drinking enough water may lead to dehydration, which can slow your body functions, making you feel tired and joyless.
Bonus tip: You can avoid dehydration by drinking water even if you’re not thirsty. Do this regularly during the day and you’ll get an instant boost of energy!
Even eaten by athletes before their training, this tropical gift is perfect during cold seasons: full of carbohydrates, potassium and vitamin B6, bananas become a sure and prolonged source of energy.
Bonus tip: in case you want a healthy snack in your diet, bananas reduce your appetite and help keep you full.
Aside from being delicious, sweet potatoes are a nutritious option for those looking for an extra energy boost. Thanks to their high dose of fiber, carbs and vitamin A, your body will digest them slowly so you can get a steady supply of energy.
Bonus tip: In case you want your doze of energy straight in the morning, you can enjoy sweet potatoes toast as tasty breakfast alongside peanut butter, yogurt and fresh fruits.
A meal with salmon or tuna is your daily source of proteins and B vitamins. As these nutrients fight against inflammation in your body, the fatigue sensation is reduced.
Bonus tip: In only 20 minutes spent in the kitchen, you can enjoy a salmon dish together with tasty garlic, lemon & spinach.
If you know them as the delicious source of protein, then you’re right! Not only are they packed with protein, but they’re also rich in B vitamins – the perfect combo for a day full of energy.
Bonus tip: Did you know that there are at least 100 ways to cook an egg? Scrambled, poached, soft or hard boiled, pickled, baked, or in an omelet and the list goes on – so no excuse to not include them in your meals :)
As you have these in your daily meals, go dance, swim or run and have fun! Now you’ll have all the energy you need.
