It’s a never ending dilemma, whether you slept early or late, you wake up tired and exhausted. You lie to your body by having a cup of coffee, which is a temporary energy booster, and you start your day. But what if I told you that there’s a way to keep the energy coming? Actually, there are seven types of food that are health and energy boosters.

Like we always tell you, being on a healthy diet can shift your whole life to the better. So, if you include these types of food in your diet, you’ll start witnessing a significant change in your mood, health and energy. Now, let me introduce you to the seven types of food that are the ultimate energy boosters:

1. Hummus as an energy booster:

I am completely biased to hummus! Besides its amazing taste, hummus dip is really healthy. If you ever feel hungry in the afternoon, a homemade hummus dip will not only satisfy your appetite, but also it will boost your energy and recharge your battery.

2. Greek yogurt and berries as an energy booster:

This is another great healthy snack or breakfast. Greek yogurt and berries are perfect to make you feel full, and you'll be ready to start your day or go back to work refreshed. Boost your energy and enjoy the delicious taste!

3. Oatmeal as an energy booster:

This high fiber meal is one of the best ways to boost your energy when you’re really feeling tired. Oatmeal fills up your tummy, and thus you’ll be able to concentrate.

4. Salmon fish as an energy booster:

Salmon fish is one of the main sources of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 reduces depression and induces mental health. Besides its sophisticated taste, salmon fish is a great energy booster!

5. Air-popped popcorn as an energy booster:

Forget about chips and unhealthy crackers, popcorn should be your best friend from now on. Popcorn that's free of oil and salt is very low in calories - it’s still carbohydrates but it’s very low in calories. And if that’s not enough, popcorn will keep you full for a long time due to its volume.

6. Bananas as an energy booster:

When your trainer asks you to eat a banana before a workout, do it. Bananas are an amazing source of energy. Bananas contain potassium, fibers and vitamin B. That's why they're a perfect energy booster.

7. Almonds as an energy booster:

Count six pieces of almonds, salt-free to snack on every day. Almonds are not only delicious nuts; they are full of magnesium and vitamin B. Enjoy a healthy snack and boost your energy to function again!
