Are you feeling like you could have more energy? Life is busy and there’s one thing we can truly control – what food we put into our bodies. When your schedule gets crazy try to focus on what you are consuming. Food is fuel, so your food choices are extremely important.
Fruits and vegetables require very little of your energy reserves to digest, especially if consumed raw. Meat and dairy on the other hand require a lot of energy from the body to break down and digest. This is energy that could be used elsewhere in the body. Fruits and veggies = net gain in energy.
B vitamins are the most energizing vitamins. B vitamins are essential to good health and are found in a variety of foods we eat. B’s are water soluble, therefore, cannot be stored in our bodies. This is why we depend on our daily diet to supply them. B vitamins are destroyed by alcohol, refined sugars, nicotine, and caffeine. It’s easy to see why a lot of people can be deficient in vitamin B, which makes the body fatigued.
These items are full of B vitamins and iron to help keep your energy up! Stock up on this list and try and eat as many of these foods throughout the day as possible in the next 7-10 days. Enjoy the fresh clean energy you will have to burn, as well other benefits, like glowing skin, from this simple and gentle approach to cleansing and energizing. Once you love the way you feel, remember to bring this list with you every time you go grocery shopping or to the farmers market so you eat these energizing foods on a regular basis.
