Try These Energy-Boosting Foods to Make the Most of Your Summer

If you are feeling tired and sluggish, it could be what you are eating. For an easy energy boost, try these simple food changes.

Sugary snacks can cause a spike in your blood sugar, followed by a large drop. This can cause you to feel energy-depleted. Instead of grabbing a doughnut or cookie, try a piece of fruit instead. You'll satisfy your sweet tooth with natural sugars and some extra fiber, both of which can help you increase your energy level for a longer period of time.

Researchers have found that garlic can help boost your energy level, although they haven't identified the reasons behind this. You can add garlic to your pasta, chicken dishes, sandwich spreads, dips, casseroles, and soups to tap into this hidden energy source.

Magnesium-rich foods have been shown to improve energy levels in patients suffering from chronic fatigue. These foods include almonds, cashews, pumpkin seed, spinach, halibut, and soybeans. Adding these foods to your diet can help with those low-energy days.

Eat something every three to four hours to help maintain a good energy level. Snack on nuts, cheese, whole grain crackers, yogurt, or a piece of fruit during the day to keep you on an even keel.
