What you eat can help keep you energized all day. Try these foods for a steady flow.


This grab-and-go fruit contains fiber, potassium, and vitamin B6—nutrients supporting sustained energy.

Complex carbs, like whole grain oats, are slowly absorbed in the body, providing a longer-lasting energy boost. Choose plain instant packets or make your own and add fresh fruit with a drizzle of honey.


Kale and Spinach

Dark, leafy greens such as spinach and kale are rich in energizing nutrients, including iron, calcium, magnesium, and potassium, and vitamins A, C, E, and K.


Sweet Potatoes

Like oats, this veggie is a good source of complex carbs, providing steady energy. They also contain a heart-healthy dose of potassium and antioxidants like vitamins A and C.



The fiber and protein in beans, such as garbanzo, in hummus, help stabilize blood sugar and improve energy. Vitamins B1 and B6 in tahini, a paste made from sesame seeds, also help with energy production.



High in natural sugars, dates can give you a quick burst of energy during the day. And if you have a sweet tooth craving, they’re a healthier sugar alternative.
