Fatigue Fighters

What are the first things you reach for when you are fatigued? Coffee? While coffee is ok in moderation, some days you need more than you know you should drink. Energy Drinks? Most of those are filled with high levels of caffeine and sugar. There are better solutions  to deal with fatigue-

Water. Yes, water. Think about how effective a dried out sponge is. Not very effective, right? Lack of sleep, alcohol, and many other things can dehydrate your body. You’ll be surprised at how much a glass of water will help. Drink a glass every couple of hours to keep your body well hydrated and running great!

Here are some great energizing foods –

Oranges, banana, apricots- both fresh and dried, cantaloupe, blueberries, mangos, apples, cherries, plums, nectarines

Dates, figs




Black, navy beans, lentils

Turkey and Cheese sandwich on wheat

Cottage Cheese

Plain Yogurt with fresh fruit



Peanut Butter on apple slices

Peanut Butter on celery

Peanut Butter on wheat bread


Greens (salad, green beans, spinach…)

Fruit Smoothies (yum!)

Chocolate (in moderation please!)

When I’ve had a hard day, I find that a big salad and some meat give me my second wave of energy.

Happy energizing!
