It’s so simple. If you want to start — and end — your day on the right foot, watch what you put in your mouth.

These food habits will give you extra energy and make you more productive

We’re all busy, and the temptation to hit the drive-thru or grab a prepackaged meal is almost overpowering. But if you make a few simple tweaks to your eating habits, you’ll have so much more energy throughout the day, and energy leads to productivity.

Eat these:

Vitamin C: Shortly after you wake up, give your body this crucial nutrient. Try dissolving the juice of half a lemon in a glass of warm water. This has been proven to flush toxins, aid digestion, boost metabolism, and give you more energy than a cup of coffee!

Bananas: It’s considered the perfect food for a reason. A banana is loaded with fiber and antioxidants, and it can help regulate blood sugar, support heart and kidney health, and even aid in weight loss — no magic pill or crash diet required!

Carrots: Try snacking on these and other low glycemic foods such as yogurt, almonds, and soybeans. They take a long time to break down in your stomach, allowing them to provide steady energy to the brain and help you feel full for longer.

Dark chocolate: Go ahead and have a piece! But remember — the darker, the better. Dark chocolate is crammed with antioxidants and is known to lower blood pressure. Plus, it releases endorphins, which make you happy!

Don’t eat these:

Cereal: It’s no longer the best way to start the day. Most popular cereals are high in glucose, which gives us a burst of energy that ends in a crash and slump.

Tryptophan: The myth that Thanksgiving turkey puts us to sleep holds true for other foods too. When eaten on an empty stomach, these foods — dairy, eggs, spinach, mushrooms, and chia seeds among them — can cause drowsiness.

Caffeine: Crashes exist! Too much coffee or any other caffeine-rich food creates stimulation, which is followed by a crash as it leaves the body, resulting in less energy and sometimes even sadness.

Be sure to:

Make a plan: If you decide what to eat ahead of time, you’ll be less inclined to veer off the course, so schedule your meals in advance.

Leave your desk: Rather than join the ranks of sad desk lunch, take a midday walk with a coworker. Going for a stroll and having a chat will both improve your mood and make you more productive when you return.

Drink water: If it’s been said once, it’s been said a thousand times. Stay hydrated all day — drinking lots of water can relieve fatigue, treat headaches, flush out toxins, and help with weight loss.
