It’s a Monday. Ugh. Could life get any worse? Luckily there are some easy and yummy ways that will wake you up better than coffee in the morning. Do you feel tired after eating proper food in the morning try these foods.
Ever heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away?” Well, it turns out that apples can keep sleepiness away too. Packed with thirteen grammes of natural sugar, apples are a great way to wake up — even better than coffee. If you’re heading to an early morning lecture class and need your brain firing on all cylinders, be sure to pick up an apple on your way out.
Protein, protein, protein. Not only will it make your body crazy muscular, it’ll bulk up your brain too. Eggs are bursting with essential nutrients and all the fancy stuff to keep your body charged longer. Because of the healthy dose of omega 3’s, fat, and protein, eggs will keep you full longer, which really helps avoid that mid-class slump. So load up your plate with eggs — scrambled, fried, over easy, or in an omelette — and make your 8 AM simply egg-cellent.
It’s chocolate; of course it’s a power food. Now I’m not saying to gobble down a whole bag of chocolate chips, but a healthy dose never hurt anyone. Aside from eating chocolate straight up, mixing it with something is a sure-fire way to kick-start your morning.
According to The National Sleep Foundation, the smell of citrus can naturally make the body more alert, and it’s full of immune system boosting Vitamin C. Even if you’re not the biggest fan of this tart, tangy fruit, be sure to saunter by it and take a little sniff.
There are a lot of rumours floating around the foodie-sphere about carbs in the morning. While it’s true that an overload of carbohydrates will leave your feeling sluggish, the right amount can go a long way in the morning. The key, my friends, is to avoid simple carbs like waffles, pancakes, and muffins (I know, I know, those are the best breakfast foods). Save those heavy, sugary breakfast foods for weekends and choose a complex carb to start your morning grind.
