6 Foods to Boost your Energy

6 Foods to Boost your Energy

Since lockdown began, it seems like days just blend, and the workday can even seem to last longer, especially when you’re spending time doing things you wouldn’t have to do otherwise. Regardless, it’s no secret that life just seems to be a little more tiring at the moment, and it’s the perfect reason to search for some diet changes you can make to increase energy. Luckily, there are certain foods which have been scientifically proven to do this exactly, so read on to find out!

1. Bananas

No matter what your concern is, bananas tend to be an effective diet fix for many concerns, as they’re packed with nutrition. Along with potassium, which many people are aware of bananas being a source of, they also contain vitamin B6 and complex carbohydrates, which are all rich sources of energy. The balance of these nutrients found in bananas makes for a fruit that’ll really spike your energy levels, and they’re a great choice pre- or post-workout.

2. Brown rice

Although brown rice seems a little specific, it’s much healthier and nutritious than its counterpart, white rice. White rice contains lots of calories that don’t actually add any value to your body and has a much lower nutritional value. However, brown rice is packed with fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It also contains manganese, which is a mineral known to aid the breakdown of carbohydrates, which will generate energy in turn.

3. Water

Although it’s not technically a food, water is still a crucial component to your diet, as you may have heard before, and it comes with so many benefits. As well as the myriad of solutions it can provide for different areas of your body, it fights dehydration, as we all know. This reduces fatigue and increases the blood flow of oxygen to your brain and organs, which can make you feel much more energised.

4. Eggs

Packed with protein, and a great protein alternative for those who don’t eat meat, eggs lead to a steady release of energy, which will maintain your levels for longer throughout the day. Among the amino acids in eggs, leucine is one of the main ones, and it can stimulate energy production in many different ways, too.

5. Nuts and seeds


Despite their small size, nuts and seeds can both pack a punch when it comes to providing energy for your body. Lots of nuts are full of vitamins and minerals, including manganese, iron and vitamins E and B. Seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids which contributes to increased energy levels and contain lots of fiber and protein. Snacking on a combination of these will provide you with sustained energy all day.

6. Sweet potatoes


Lastly, sweet potatoes are another source of complex carbohydrates, along with bananas, which is essential in order to raise energy levels. Because these carbohydrates take longer for your body to digest, their effects will be released gradually, which provides a steady flow of energy. They also contain vitamin B6, which is important for converting food into energy.

Final thoughts

If you’ve been feeling tired and hitting fatigue at a certain time every day, there are some foods you can try incorporating into your diet in order to boost energy. Plus, these foods are all great for your body in other ways, too, and they allow you to upgrade your diet without the need for any supplements.
