Shopping, working, playing….whatever is zapping your energy, rev up your levels with these three surprising foods:
1. Apricots: Dried or fresh, this super fruit is rich in natural sugars and carbs for energy but also has some good-for-you vitamins like potassium and Vitamin A. You’ll notice that some dried fruits say they are ‘sulphered’ (which is actually used to keep the food fresher, longer) but we know a few people with a sulphur allergy — which is why we like this all-natural brand: Made in Nature.
2. Walnuts: A great source of omega-3 fatty acids and energy producing carbs, you need about an ounce of walnuts a day to get health benefits – that’s about seven shelled walnuts. If you’re adding these into your daily diet, we suggest you stick with the organic version, which is why we really like Good Sense Organic Walnuts.
3. Chia: Remember those Chia pets from the 90s? Well, this is a little different – Chia is actually the Mayan word for strength. This Dr. Oz super food is healthier than coffee and is a great addition to your morning smoothie. There are a lot of great options but we’ve tried Navitas Natural Chia Seeds.
