Huffington Post’s Healthy Living rocks my world with this quick article and slide show about how to eat for more energy. Ever since doing a Clean Eating Detox a few weeks ago, I’ve been working towards kicking the caffeine habit. It’s been easier than I thought since I gave up the highly-processed creamers (I used to adore the Fat Free French Vanilla!!) and all those other artificially sweetened add-in’s a few years ago. Back in the day, a Skinny Vanilla Latte? Yes, please! Make it a double!

Needless to say, black coffee is much easier to walk away from than lattes and cappuccinos; however, weaning myself off of
the gentle jolt from a Cup o’ Joe definitely takes some getting used to. (So does falling asleep at 7PM, let me tell you!
Allegedly, it’s all part of your body adjusting, but yikes, does it put a damper on a girl’s social life for a good week or so!)

That said, finding these oldies-but-goodies on how to naturally boost our energy levels is both serendipitous and motivating. Simple and easy-to-remember techniques that help combat blood sugar dips and mid-afternoon slumps? Sounds like a must-read to me!

Check out the Post for the tip(s) that will help you triumph over your own 2PM Cookie Monsters and Energy Drink temptations!

My favorite is #2: Eat The Right Food Combos for maximum energy: fruit or veggie + a whole grain + lean protein + plant-based fat + herb/spice. (LOVE that herbs/spices are having a moment in the spotlight of energizing superfoods! Turmeric, Ginger, Garlic, oh my!)

Eating clean, food combinations, eating for more energy
Yummy superfood combo!
