The word for when the body is at maximum performance is homeostasis. When homeostasis is achieved, everything runs as smoothly as it can. Deviating from perfect functionality causes various side effects, most commonly a lack of energy. Eating foods that will help the body achieve homeostasis is better than any artificial caffeine source.

5 Goodies That Boost Energy

Jumbo Medjool Dates 

Dates are sweet without being sugar-coated, so they’re a great sweet choice for diabetics. If a diabetic eats too much sugar, they may feel tired, so avoiding that by reaching for a healthy choice is a real energy booster.

These jumbo Medjool dates have a small pit and no added sugars. That makes them a great choice to supplement your healthy lifestyle. Dried fruits are a high-energy food packed with potassium and vitamins, and they’ll keep you at your peak all day long. Eat them in the morning as a morning pick me up and to help keep the hunger pangs from coming.

Roasted and Salted Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are packed with good fats, minerals, protein, and vitamins. They are a good source of Vitamin E which supports heart health. Our sunflower seeds are wheat, soy, and gluten-free while remaining a vegan product.

The fats in sunflower seeds are mono and polyunsaturated fats, which again makes them great for heart health and as an anti-inflammatory. They’re a great source of fiber which we need in our diet to keep our gastrointestinal tract on track.  

 What’s great about these roasted and salted sunflower seeds is they’re already shelled for your snacking pleasure. They’re great alone or paired with your favorite trail mix picks, and they’re delicious on salads as a crunchy replacement for croutons.

Chandler Walnut Halves and Pieces Boost Energy

Walnuts Walnut

You can buy these babies in bulk for all your walnut recipes. They can be eaten by the handful or used in cookies, cakes, brownies, and savory recipes.

These chandler walnut halves are jam-packed with Omega-3 fatty acids and protein. Walnuts reign supreme as a great source of antioxidants, which help prevent diabetes and heart disease. 

Nuts don’t provide an instant surge of energy, but they do give you energy bursts throughout the day. This is due to how the body processes them. They’re the long-term energy booster that’ll keep going strong for you until the end.

Dried Cranberries

They’re a staple in trail mix because they offer a burst of sugar without the guilt of candy. These tangy dried cranberries have been slightly sweetened so they’re perfectly soured. They make a great salad topping that spices up a good balsamic, and they can go into any baked good.

 These perfectly shriveled cranberries are high in antioxidants so they’re also a heart-healthy choice. They are proven to help prevent the frequency of UTIs and keeping that system healthy can be the difference between staying at home or being in the office.  

Roasted and Salted Pumpkin Seeds

Our pumpkin seeds are shelled, so there’s no crunchy exterior to

 have to chew. They’re perfectly salted, so you can eat them right out of the bag or add them to your favorite recipe.

Another staple of trail mix, roasted and salted pumpkin seeds are a definite energy booster. That may seem like a contradiction when you hear they’re packed with tryptophan, but a healthy night’s sleep is nature’s best boost of energy. Tryptophan is also in turkey, so just like when you eat a turkey sandwich, you don’t become drowsy or sedated. They make a great snack all day long.

They also have other energy-boosting benefits which make them great for your pick-me-up rotation. They’re full of antioxidants, magnesium, and zinc. A single serving of these seeds provides a whopping 15% of your needed daily iron intake, meaning they’re heart-healthy and are going to keep your circulatory system in good shape so you’ve got more get up and go.
