10 Best Natural Energy-Boosting Foods

There’s no such thing as an instant energy-boosting food (Elon Musk, get on that, will you?), but these natural foods come deliciously close.

Energy-Boosting Foods:

EGGS

They’re the number one breakfast food for a reason! “Eggs provide high-quality protein and heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids and help stay energized and prevent overeating,” says Elisa Zied, R.D.N., C.D.N., author of Younger Next Week and Food, Fitness & Fiction blogger.

WATER

Past studies found that dehydration is the culprit to why we’re so tired (or think we’re hungry). So, next time you’re feeling sluggish, guzzle down some H2O for a quick energy boost.

BLUEBERRIES

Snacking on these powerful berries can help you beat that post-lunch slump. They’re low in sugar, but high in fiber, a powerful combination to keep your body humming with energy. The best part is that you can throw in anything: salads, yogurt, smoothies, or just enjoy them on their own. Bonus: They’re one of the 15 Most Antioxidant-Packed Fruits & Veggies.
