Here are the best five foods to give you energy when you need it most! They’re ranked by their benefits, one being the best.
- Apple and Banna Salad
Especially easy to make, this fruit salad will keep you full and awake all day. Just use an apple slicer to divide a whole apple, and throw in a few bananas to the mix. Both fruits are high in fiber and antioxidants so your body will be able to lay in the sun all day long. For extra flavor, drizzle honey across the top of the mix.
This is easy. Go to the local grocery store and pick up a pre-packaged container of the stuff. Hummus is a paste made with chickpeas, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and tahini. It also has a little bit of protein in it so it will make you feel stronger. Don’t forget chips or veggies to dip in it before you get ready to go!
3. Peanut Butter Sandwiches
Everyone knows peanut butter is good for you, but it’s even better on a sandwich. Just spread some peanut butter on bread, preferably whole wheat, and enjoy. Again, this snack contains good amounts of fiber and carbohydrates- two important energy boosters!
4. Pineapple slices
One of the most tropical fruits, pineapple just sounds like it belongs on the beach. However, it doesn’t just match the scene. Pineapple contains high amounts of Vitamin C, which boosts the immune system so you can keep going for longer. Your body will be better protected while you’re out and you’ll be thankful for the pick me up.
5. Green tea
It’s easy to work up a sweat when you’re by the salty sea and you need to make sure you stay hydrated. Keep a bottle of green tea in your cooler. It has been said to improve physical performance because of its fat burning qualities. With this drink, you can stay cool and get the most out of the energy you put into a beach trip.
