Food Add-ons for an Instant Energy Boost
If your daily meals just aren’t giving you the boost that they used to, try Dr. Oz’s instant add-ons. They’ll provide you with the energy you need to get through the day, leaving you feeling healthy and happy.
Boost Your Breakfast Cereal With Guarana
We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if your cereal isn’t giving you the boost you need, try adding a pinch of guarana. Like coffee, guarana is a ground-up, South American bean. The difference? Coffee beans contain 1-2% caffeine while guarana seeds may contain up to 10% caffeine, making them the energy booster of choice in many energy drinks and supplements. Guarana’s got a bitter taste on its own, so simply add a pinch to your cereal or, better yet, steel-cut oatmeal to give you the energy you need to get going in the morning.
Boost Your Lunchtime Sandwich With Yogurt and Hummus “Mayo”
If your sandwich isn’t doing the trick, try adding a delicious, yogurt and hummus mayo, also known as laban ma’hummus, for a terrific energy boost. It makes any sandwich taste better, and it’s a great alternative to regular mayonnaise. The hummus is high in protein, and the yogurt is rich in both protein and vitamin B. It’s got less than half the calories of regular mayonnaise.
Boost Your Fruits With a Cashew Crumble
Fruits make delicious and healthy snacks, but if you want to pack on a real energy punch, try adding a cashew crumble. Cashews, sometimes called “nature’s vitamin pill,” are high in protein and essential minerals like magnesium. Just grind the nuts into a crumble using a coffee grinder or mini blender, then dip your fruit in the crumble in for a healthy, energy-packed crunch.
Boost Your Proteins With an E.V. Coco Splash
While you should restrict red meat in your meals to once a week, you can kick your chicken or fish up a notch by adding Dr. Oz’s E.V. Coco Splash. Add 1 tbsp of extra virgin coconut oil in a pan while sautéing your fish or grilling up your chicken, or drizzle it directly on your salad. Either way, you’ll reap the benefits of the oil’s high lauric acid content, which may contribute to speeding up your metabolism while adding a fantastic, subtle coconut flavor to your proteins.
