2. Bananas are one of the best foods to help boost physical energy
Bananas are a great source of energy and are a perfect choice an hour before exercise as bananas release their energy slowly. Bananas are a rich source of fiber, B vitamins, and potassium, three nutrients that promote energy and proper muscle function. Bananas should be eaten in moderation as they are relatively calorie dense, about 100 calories for a small ripe banana.
What to do: To increase energy and healthful benefits, add a cup of low-fat milk, yogurt or a tablespoon of peanut butter to balance the complex carbs of the banana with protein and a tiny bit of healthy fat.
