Young people are not guaranteed to have bursting overflowing energy, needless to say what older individuals will have experienced. We lose more energy than we gain, especially in modern times when we have so many things to do that simply sitting before a computer either working or playing can be an exhausting affair.

Most people resort to eating just about anything within arm’s reach. Potato chips and other ‘health-horrors’ are certain to pack calories and will make you fat in some of the unhealthiest ways. This whole mess can be avoided if you only take up natural foods that are also within arm’s reach.

Here are six of the best that you cannot do without if you want optimal energy with no risk to your health. Sleep is also essential for energy accumulation but then again who gets a good night’s sleep these days anyway.

  1. Spinach

This is quite the familiar veggie, and not as yucky as kids think they are; got to cook them right and they taste divine. Rich in potassium, iron, and magnesium, you get the power of three supreme energy-imparting substances while eating this super-healthy vegetable with your meals.

Potassium works on good digestion rates in your body while magnesium has a hand in energy production. Muscle and nerve functions are also improved. You can easily take spinach for breakfast (does not always have to be a lunch-veggie); eat them with eggs (more on this below) or add them to a bowl of salad.

  1. Yogurt

Specifically yogurt made from goat’s milk, this amazing breakfast addition sits well on either salads or curries. The sheer energy boosts that goat yogurt packs is nothing short of marvelous.

Containing large doses of probiotics (good bacteria) and calcium, the microflora in your gut is completely altered to promote better and healthier bowel movements and absorption. Your immune system is therefore directly influenced with such goodly digestion levels. The overall result is a fine flow of energy from food to system; no fatigue at all.

  1. Pumpkin Seeds

Half the daily recommended portion of magnesium that your body needs can be found in a quarter cup of pumpkin seeds.

From promoting fatty acid production to ensuring bone health, magnesium helps maintain optimal calcium levels in your body as well as relaxing muscles; sunflower seeds are a good alternative. All of this works to impart energy that your body naturally produces.

  1. Salmon

Filled with omega-3 fatty acids essential for health, this fish is an outstanding choice of food for those who find themselves short on energy. It also reduces risk of heart disease by lowering LDL, namely bad cholesterol.

With large amounts of niacin, protein, riboflavin, and Vitamin B6, you can certainly expect ideal food conversion into energy from a plate of salmon.

  1. Sweet Potatoes

Not only is it the go-to source for healthy carbohydrates, sweet potatoes also contain vitamins D and C, potassium, iron, and magnesium. Most of these substances are repeats because of how powerful they are at energy production and distribution in your body.

Whether you plan to roast, grill, steam, or mash them, or simply throw them into a salad, sweet potatoes retain their full health potential. No more fatigue after this veggie is done with you.

  1. Eggs

As classic and traditional as this final food-selection is on our energy-list, you cannot deny the sheer force eggs bring to your diet. From covering 30% of your daily required protein intake to being the highest source of complete protein among any food anywhere, eggs are a brilliant source of natural energy.

From muscle recovery after exercise to rendering your skin fresh, you will also feel energetic and ready to take on the world. You can beat your eggs for breakfast but nothing else beats eggs where energy is concerned.
