A bowl of dried dates
Someone who wakes up in the morning may not feel that they had enough rest or are lacking energy. To increase energy, it usually requires tea, coffee or energy drinks.
However, it turns out that according to nutritionist, health trainer, and certified diabetes educator Avni Kaul, choosing processed foods with added sugar for energy will make someone feel worse.
“Natural whole foods can make yourself feel light and energized throughout the day,” Kaul said, as reported by Indian Express on Monday (10/21).
He revealed that fresh seasonal fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and foods with high vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants fill the body with nutrients that help ward off fatigue and sustain it throughout the day.
First, almonds. Almonds are an excellent source of healthy protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fat.
Almonds are filled with B vitamins that help your body convert food into energy. Also, almonds are high in magnesium which helps fight muscle fatigue. Add almonds to the granola in the morning or enjoy a handful of snacks in the morning.
Second, bananas. This potassium-rich fruit has good fiber, which decreases the release of sugar into the bloodstream and provides an excellent source of magnesium and vitamins.
Ripe bananas will provide more energy available in the form of sugar than raw bananas. Note that bananas must be freckled and yellow rather than green.
Third, spinach. Spinach is a good source of vitamin C, folate, and iron.
The same amount of vitamins and minerals is very important for energy production. Lower iron levels are the main reason for fatigue. Add some stir-fried spinach to the egg in the morning, and squeeze a little lemon juice to increase iron absorption.
Fourth, dates. Apart from its sweet taste, dates are easily digested by the body and provide an instant energy boost. They are a strong source of calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. Add chopped dates to the morning fruit plate or add some smoothies to add sweetness.
Fifth, watermelon. Watermelons contain more than 90 percent water, provide a variety of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and contain the amino acid L-citrulline.
These contents can help reduce muscle pain. Start the day with a bowl full of watermelons.
