12 Energy-Boosting Foods to Kickstart Your Day!

Diet and Nutrition News & Advice

Keeping your energy up throughout the day can be difficult. It seems that we always hit a 3:00 pm wall. Starting your day right is the best way to stay energized and keep your mental focus all day. Having a healthy breakfast is also an important step in eating healthy throughout the rest of the day.

Busy mornings could see you rushing out of the house without even eating breakfast. Instead, you grab fastfood and drink coffee to keep yourself going. Making ten minutes to eat a proper breakfast can be a great way to make your day more productive. Breakfast doesn’t have to be a difficult endeavor. If you are racing to get to work, then try a smoothie. Put together fresh fruit with protein powder or yogurt to make a healthy, delicious meal on the go.

Here are 12 other amazing energy-boosting foods to kickstart your day! These foods will help keep you energized for hours, not just a short burst with a hard crash.

1. Eggs

Protein is a great way to start your day. Skip the egg white omelet and get the yolk included. While some people believe it can be high in cholesterol, egg yolks have been proven to reduce bad cholesterol in the long run. The egg yolks also contain amazing energizing properties. They are rich in B vitamins, which act by turning the food you eat into the energy you need. One whole egg is only 75 calories, so  have a few for a filling meal.
