TIP OF THE WEEK
Did you know that what you eat can help you to kick the morning yawns and help you power through the day? Food is a source of energy, naturally, however, there are superfoods that you can add to your diet that will maintain energy levels and increase vitality.
Mushrooms: Not the type you would typically eat in a salad or pasta, but medicinal mushrooms, more specifically chaga mushrooms and lion’s mane. Known to boost energy and brain function, these powerful adaptogens can be added to coffee, baking, and smoothies.
Sweet Potato: Add some sweetness to your diet, while also helping to maintain energy levels throughout the day, by incorporating sweet potato. Sweet potato is a complex carb, which means that it takes your body more time to digest them, providing a steady supply of energy and preventing a midday crash. Add sweet potato puree to your morning pancakes or waffles, or incorporate sweet potato pasta sauce, rice, or soup to your next meal.
Flaxseeds: You’re going to want to sprinkle these little guys on everything! Flaxseeds are high in magnesium, omega-3s, and fiber, meaning they can help you fight fatigue and stay sharp and focused. Add flaxseeds to your overnight oats (which also provides you with lasting energy) or smoothie bowl, or spread a seed butter made with flax seeds on toast.
Beans & Legumes: Beans, beans, the more you eat, the more energy you have? Beans and legumes, like black beans and lentils, are fiber-filled little powerhouses that are a natural source of energy and can help you maintain stable blood sugar levels. Enjoy a spicy lentil soup for lunch or a chickpea snack midday to keep you fueled.
