One of the most effective ways to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight is to eat foods that keep you energized throughout the day. The list below includes 12 commonly consumed meals that have been chosen for their ability to provide energy to the body.
Some of the foods contain healthy carbs, which are the body's main source of energy and provide slow-release energy. Others include a wide range of essential vitamins and minerals that play a role in the body's cellular energy generation.
High-quality protein sources are also included, as they are necessary for the preservation of bodily structures, especially muscle.
In spinach, you'll find a lot of iron, magnesium, and potassium. Iron is in charge of delivering oxygen around the body, which is necessary for energy production. Magnesium, when paired with potassium, is necessary for energy production, as well as nerve and muscle function.
Oatmeal is one of the best sources of slow-release energy from complex carbohydrates with a low GI, which will keep you going all morning. Also high in B-vitamins, which are required for the conversion of food into energy.
Eggs are a good source of complete protein (all essential amino acids), B vitamins, healthy fats, and vitamin D. Choline, a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that activates skeletal muscle, is also present.
Green tea contains caffeine, which gives you an energy boost without the jittery side effects that come with higher caffeinated beverages like coffee. Green tea may also help to lower cholesterol levels.
Soybeans are high in protein, B vitamins, copper, and phosphorus. Copper and phosphorous are involved in the conversion of food into energy and the subsequent release of that energy into cells for use by the body.
