How do you boost energy when you’re constantly getting things done?
Are you one of those people who constantly struggle with tons of work and no power to get stuff done?
Or maybe you are a mom and have your kids wanting to spend more quality time with you, but the big problem is you just don’t have the energy…
Or you have so many projects, hobbies, or activities you would like to do and postpone until the day you hope to have more drive….just this day never arrives
Believe me, I’ve been there!
Many years ago before I became a nutrition coach, I was really struggling with low energy and other health issues.
I was always tired and had no oomph to get all my stuff done.
Luckily, I was able to change my nutrition at one point and did a really amazing detox.
Suddenly, I got super good energy.
I was like transformed!
All my health issues such as bloating, migraines, weight issues and hormonal imbalances almost disappeared immediately.
It was amazing!
In that detox, there was a smoothie!
Yes, a smoothie!
This same smoothie, I still drink most breakfasts as it works for me and brings my energy up, keeps me full and makes me feel AMAZING. Every. Day.
Aside from my smoothie builder, here are my top tips for more energy:

Eggs can provide 30% of the protein your body requires and help strengthen and build your muscles. You can use eggs however you like. You can make an omelet, scramble them up, or simply hard-boil them.
My favorite on-the-go snack, it provides your body with an incredible amount of energy. It is milk, lactose, and low sugar levels are responsible for energy, and the protein helps slow food digestion so you can store the energy for a longer period.
Shrimp is rich in vitamin B12 and very low in calories. Vitamin B12 helps your body produce energy at a much faster rate. Shrimp also contains omega 3 fatty acids, which help boost your mood and your energy levels.
This Mediterranean dish contains healthy fats and protein, which means that you will be able to store that energy for a longer period. On weekends, my husband and I love to cook and try out new delicious recipes and ways of healthy cooking but without compromising on deliciousness. This is my husband’s secret recipe. He is the world’s best hummus chef (Yes, there is such a thing lol)
Strawberries contain natural fructose, which gives you a quick yet sustainable boost of energy. You eat them raw or add them to your oatmeal, acai bowls, or smoothies.
Mitochondria are the powerhouse of cells. Spinach contains nitrates that are responsible for improving the efficiency of mitochondria, helping provide energy to your cells.
