Hi guys! Interesting topic for today that I have been researching….
Some people think I’m weird because I don’t drink coffee every day like they do. Is that weird? I didn’t think so. But I’m not going to lie, I used to drink coffee everyday. I love the taste, I love the smell. However, I do not love the way it makes me feel. Sure, caffeine gives me energy for about 30 minutes. After that, I crash instantly. I’m not sure why my body doesn’t let me have caffeine, but it is obviously trying to tell me something! I am also blessed with natural energy that I am very thankful for. I’m sure most of it has to do with my diet because on those days where I don’t eat as well as I could have, I definitely can feel the difference!
Some foods that claimed to be high in natural energy:
What I’ve found from the web:
- Most foods that were claimed as causing “natural energy” were raw foods
- Almost all high-energy foods I found were high in B12
- Sugar is the devil
“The Aztec people knew a good thing when they saw it. They discovered spirulina, a single-celled algae that they called tecuitlatl and soon made it a staple of their diet. It is high in usable protein, a great source of Vitamin B12 (often called the “energy vitamin”), 8 minerals and many vitamins, including 7 types of vitamin A precursors known as carotenoids. It is also packed with chlorophyll, the green pigment that gives spirulina its colour and its blood purification properties. And, of course, it boosts energy levels.”
Spirulina in smoothie is a great way to feel that energy!
(Just don’t smell it and you’ll be alright)
One new product I have been using…
I got this Steaz energy shot for a dollar so I thought I would try it. Packed full of B12 and a blend of teas with a few grams of sugar (really, you could have left this one out!).
Tommy needs his B12 too!
Another great source of natural energy is lots of fresh air and exercise! I have been expirencing a lot of energy from this too, I love it!
Any other tips for natural energy you’d like to add?
