Soybeans are rich in copper, phosphorus, fibre, carbs and proteins. It’s almost like an all-in-one wonder. Copper and phosphorus consume the food we eat and turn it into energy.
B-complex vitamins are responsible for transporting oxygen through our body and carbs are the food from which our bodies derive most energy from. Soybeans are rich in proteins and are therefore a healthy snack post-workout.
Energy Tip: Keep a bowl of edamame ready for after you’re done with your workout. Garnish with salts to replace the electrolytes you lost.
4. Whole Grain Cereal
Whole grain cereal is a healthy snack to munch on to keep the hunger pangs at bay. It has the dual benefit of helping in weight loss and keeping a constant level of energy in the form of glucose available through the day. This makes you less prone to the afternoon energy slump and helps keep hunger pangs at bay.
Whole grain cereal is best taken with less amount of additives such as sugar or syrup.
Energy Tip: Fortified cereals have all the vitamins and minerals you need. Garnish with fresh fruits to give it an added healthy edge.
