Your Energy Boosting Breakfast Menu
A staggering 83% of Americans turn to coffee to help energize themselves each and every morning. However, there are a number of different foods and beverages that can help you kick your coffee dependency and find energy from new sources. Take a look at what we found to be the most energizing ingredients to look for.
A healthy intake of carbohydrates can be an excellent means of energizing your body. Carbohydrates are broken down by the body to produce small sugars, which fuels brain activity and muscle function. A healthy level of carbohydrate intake also helps ensure that your body isn’t breaking down protein to use as simple energy.
Foods containing carbohydrates: Whole fruits, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, chia seeds, whole grains from certain oats and breads.
Vitamin B comes in eight varieties that assist your body in the afformentioned breakdown of carbs into glucose. It is important to note that vitamin B is a supplement and should be used accordingly. This means that it only assists in the healthy creation of energy. While it makes an awesome addition to your breakfast, vitamin B shouldn’t be counted on to make up a whole energy boosting meal.
Foods containing vitamin B: Eggs, meat and other dairy products.
Fiber is another ingredient we suggest adding to your breakfast in order to feel more energized throughout the day. Fiber’s contribution to your energy fueled day comes in the form of the removal of fatigue inducing body waste. When a high level of metabolic byproducts accrue in your body, a feeling of low energy and fatigue can often be felt.
Foods containing fiber: Chia seeds, avocado, raspberries, oatmeal, pears, apples and bananas.
The key to understanding how fat is used for energy in the human body is first knowing that it all has to do with fatty acids and ketones. Your body uses fatty acids for roughly half of its bodily functions, and while fat does contain more calories than other sources of energy like carbohydrates, it can still be a great way to fuel your muscles.
Foods containing (healthy) fat: Avacados, whole eggs, nuts, chia seeds and full-fat yogurt.
Being dehyrdrated can often leave you feeling fatigued and low on energy. When you’re dehydrated, your body saves energy by limiting blood circulation to muscles, which can contribute to a groggy and sluggish feeling. This means that the more water you drink, the more bodily circulation you’ll achieve, allowing your muscles to feel fully fueled.
