A few foods and drinks to cheer your mood and make your day.

If you often feel low and tired during the day, your body is trying to communicate its lack of energy to you. It interrupts your daily activities and affects your productivity.

Your food plays a vital role in deciding your energy levels throughout the day.

Some food items are more nutritious than others and hence, helps you stay alert and focused throughout the day.

Here is the list of foods and drinks that can boost your energy levels instantly -

Foods and Drinks to Boost Your Energy

1. Bananas

    Bananas boost your energy level quickly since they are a great source of natural sugar and fiber. The natural sugar in bananas provides energy while the fiber slows down its digestion, keeping you energized for longer durations. They also contain essential nutrients like complex carbs, potassium, and vitamin B6.

    Studies suggest that eating a banana before exercise improves performance and endurance as much as a carbohydrate drink does.

    2. Brown Rice

      As compared to white rice, brown rice is a more nutritious food. It is less processed and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

      50 gms of brown rice contains 2 grams of fiber and a large share of RDI of manganese - a mineral that generates energy, helping enzymes break down carbs and proteins.

      Also, brown rice has a low glycemic index. It, therefore, helps in maintaining blood sugar levels and provides enough energy for a day.

      3. Coffee

        Many of us get our morning caffeine jolt with coffee. Thankfully, it works!

        Coffee enhances your energy levels and keeps you more alert. However, do not over consume it. If you have too much caffeine, it can make you jittery and disturb your sleep cycle. Also, try to not consume it in the evening hours since its effects persist until midnight on your body. It affects those more who are not used to it and still have it late in the day.

        4. Dark Chocolate

          Dark chocolates are popularly known to elevate your mood and the functions of the brain. They are, any day, a better choice over candy since they contain less sugar than candies and milk chocolate.

          The cocoa in dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants. They help in lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow. It keeps you healthy and energized. However, keep the proportions small as dark chocolate has fat.

          5. Avocado

          In terms of health and nutrients, avocados are a must-have fruit. They are rich in nutrients, fiber, and protein that keep your energy levels sustained throughout the day. They also contain good fats that enhance your energy levels and provide more fat-soluble nutrients to the body.

          6. Green Tea

            Green tea has compounds that lower oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. The amino acid in it helps you to stay alert and energetic for your entire day. It is a better option than coffee since it contains a small amount of caffeine.

            These food and drink items do a great job at keeping your body energized for a longer time. Do include them in your daily diet and make your lifestyle healthier.
