Need a Boost of Energy?

After a fun get-a-way weekend with my husband and another couple, I am in need for an energy boost!! I am sure there are days when we need a power nap or an ice cold shower to get our day going.... with it being Monday and overcast/rainy, I wanted to share some energy-boosting tips that can help you get back on the right track when you are feeling tired and sluggish after a fun weekend!

Think about whole foods rather than processed foods... By eating more variety of whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, you can provide your body with natural foods our body craves which can be utilized as fuel for the body and mind. Make sure to focus on these foods the majority of the time.

A great way to feel back to your "normal self" :-) after your busy weekend is making time for a brisk walk, which can improve your mood and energy quickly. Your heart, lungs, muscles and brain all need oxygen to survive and thus, provide quality energy. Simple 10 minute bursts, 2-3 times per day, can also re-energize your body.

Decrease your intake of sugars and processed foods.. sometimes these foods can creep in during social outings. Eating too much sugar or processed foods can lead to low energy levels. These foods usually do not contain vitamins, minerals and proteins needed to maintain good health.. they may give you an initial burst of energy but they often lead to an energy slump later... So to avoid this and instead, provide your body with long-term energy, make sure to pack healthy snack items such as trail mix, dried fruit, bran muffins (add natural peanut butter on top) or whole grain crackers. I made oatmeal, chocolate chip-peanut butter cookies for our trip to South Bend, and they were a great road trip treat! I used Stevia instead of sugar, dark chocolate chips, natural peanut butter and substituted over-ripe bananas and unsweetened applesauce for the butter. They were delicious and moist!

Have a great week and make sure to fuel up the right way! :-)
