Foods that boost your energy

Many people order an espresso or reach for an energy drink when they

need a boost. However, there are other foods that can give you a similar

increase in energy and are, arguably, a lot healthier. Here are a few



• Coconut oil. It contains high quantities of medium chain fats, which

are a quick source of energy.

• Honey. It tastes sweet because it's a natural form of sugar. As we all

know, sugar gives you a quick boost.

• Iron containing foods. Lack of iron in your diet can leave you

feeling sluggish. Adding more beans, spinach, and lentils to your diet

– perhaps in salads – can help boost your iron levels.

• Nuts. Almonds, cashews and other nutrient-rich nuts are the ideal

quick snack for an energy boost.

• Dark chocolate. It’s great news for chocolate lovers, but keep the

portions small.


Finally, not drinking enough water can also rob you of energy. In fact, water

may be the best energy-boosting "food" of them all.
