Energy Boosting Foods

Have you ever wondered why we feel tired at different times of the day and ask ourselves what can we do different to have more energy? This article shoud shed some light on why this happens and what we can do about it. Now keep in mind that when we talk about Glucose, that is basically a spike in sugar levels which gives you short term energy,(1 hour or so), and after that you will be tired again, craving more sugar.

My favorite fatigue-fighting combos: Spinach salad with mandarin oranges bean chili (such as kidney, pinto or black bean) with crushed tomatoes steak with saut�ed broccoli and chicken cacciatore with tomatoes and peppers.

Combine soluble fiber and protein.

Low-quality carbohydrates, such as white rice, white bread, cakes and soft drinks, cause blood sugar spikes that usually lead to a sluggish, depressed feeling when they begin to plummet about one hour after consumption of such foods.

High-quality carbohydrates, such as vegetables, fruits and whole grains, contain soluble fiber that causes a slower, less dramatic rise in glucose.

Good sources of soluble fiber: Oatmeal barley, lentils, beans (such as kidney, lima and black) and peas apples (all types), raisins, oranges and bananas cauliflower and sweet potatoes.

Protein is another natural blood sugar stabilizer — it helps slow the absorption of carbohydrates in your diet.

Good sources of lean protein: Turkey or chicken breast fish (all types) pork tenderloin lean beef egg whites yogurt (low-fat or fat-free) milk (low-fat or fat-free) and beans (such as pinto and black).
