1.Green smoothie

This may look horrible, but a green smoothie is full of goodness. Take spinach or kale, mix it with low-fat yogurt, and add some nuts or fruit and this is one major energy drink that will really give you a boost like nothing else out there. All you need to do is look past the color.


Bananas are well known for boosting energy as they are high in potassium. They are also high in both fructose and glucose and your body is able to break this down and use it for energy in a very short period of time. That is why bananas are used by the likes of tennis players on a regular basis.


When it comes to fruit, apples are some of the best sources of energy out there. Not only are they high in vitamin C, but they are also high in fiber and a number of antioxidants and they will help to boost your energy levels in next to no time. They are also high in fructose and your body can process this quickly for energy.


Beans are fantastic as they do not only provide you with some protein, but they also contain iron and B vitamins, not to mention the fiber in them. All of these different things will result in you getting a real energy boost, so consider having them as a snack or a staple part of your main meal to really get the benefit.


Tea works the same way as coffee as it is just as high in caffeine and that is something that a lot of people quite simply do not know about. Once again you need to drink in moderation as too much tea means too much caffeine and that can be bad for your health.


Coffee is obvious as we all know about what caffeine does to you as so many of us will use it for a short-term energy boost. Of course there will then be a problem if you rely on it too much, but in moderation it can certainly help to spur you on for the rest of the day.

7.Whole grains

Whole grains have refined carbohydrates, so not only will it give you an energy boost, but it will last longer than you would get with white flour or even white rice. You need to go for whole grains or you are going to feel a bit on the tired side yet again after less than an hour.



Eggs will give you a serious protein hit and you need that in order to get more energy. They are capable of offering you the same kind of boosts as the lean meat, but do so in a smaller package that is easier to eat quickly/


Salmon is a great fish as it is high in essential fatty acids and these acids are going to reduce the amount of inflammation in your body. How does this give you energy? Because that inflammation slows you down and tires you out, so without it you will have more energy to keep on going.


10.Lean meat

Lean meat means the likes of skinless chicken or turkey along with anything else that is not seen as being fatty. These meats contain protein, iron, and different B vitamins as well as an amino acid called tyrosine and this will reduce fatigue and boost energy.


Nuts are high in protein as well as an enzyme called Q10 with this having been shown to be effective in producing more energy within the cells of our body. It does mean that a snack that contains nuts can give us a short-term energy boost.


12.Leafy greens

Leafy greens are full in both vitamin A and C and they have both been shown to boost energy levels and to help fight fatigue. It does mean you should try to include things such as spinach, kale, and chard into your diet as much as possible in order to get the benefit from them.
