If you are needing a little extra energy this morning, we mentioned that there are 5 foods that are healthy and will give you that boost you need to get through your day.
WATER: Ok, so I don't consider this a food, but it was in the article because H2O is one of the quickest energy boosters out there. When we become dehydrated, our energy plummets and our brains gets foggy, which makes it hard to concentrate.
OATMEAL: Grains have been getting a bad rap lately, but whole grains are still one of the best sources of energy we have. The fiber and carbohydrates in oatmeal provide a long-lasting, consistent source of energy that can be dressed up in a million different ways.EGGS: Protein builds strong muscles and helps keep you full. Eggs are a clean and easy source of protein, and many different ways to cook them. It's easy to keep them interesting.
BANANAS: Potassium deficieny-a problem that can manifest in a variety of ways, including lethargy and memory problems. This necessary nutrient, which is also found in dried apricots, figs, and plums, helps regulate the body's nervous and muscular systems.
FISH: Research shows a link between memory, test-taking skills and, gulp, eating fish for breakfast. While that's not typically pleasing to little palates, the benefits are huge. The omega 3 fatty acids found in fatty fish like wild salmon have been proven to reduce depression and hyperactivity and increase focus and concentration. In addition, all that high quality protein keeps kids' blood sugar (and therefore their moods) steady while keeping them full for hours.
