Foodtastic Friday: Energizers
On this amazing Friday, we are bringing you a few foods that could help you boost your energy. These foods provide you with energy while being healthy for your body.
Bananas are often understated food. Bananas are fast energy boosters because they contain three varying types of sugars. Don’t be alarmed; these sugars are safer for your body than you would like to think. The three sugars: glucose, fructose, and sucrose. The glucose and fructose are what gives you the zing of energy, while the sucrose takes a generous amount of time to help keep the sugar levels stable. The sucrose helps to prevent the “crash” that usually comes along with your regular sugars.
Kale is a super food that is trending right now. However, the hype is not a lie. Kale has many nutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids. Eating it raw is the best way to absorb all of the great nutrients that are packed with these leafy veggies. Kale is a versatile vegetable that could be used in salads and smoothies for a healthy boost of energy.
Similar to bananas, sweet potatoes contain the slow-releasing glucose that maintains the steady flow of energy within the body. The amount of vitamin C, beta-carotene and iron serves as an extra source of energy-providing nutrients. Sweet potatoes hold a bonus of fiber content, which could help with weight loss.
