Feeding your body with the right energy giving food is key to sustaining your energy levels throughout the day. How well do you know about these natural energy boosters? Read on to see our list.

Bulletproof Coffee

This one is the perfect or ideal keto drink, and chances are you haven’t tried it. It’s actually pretty easy to make and require no fancy ingredients, so it’s entirely possible to make your own right after reading this bit. If you’re a regular coffee drinker, this is the best way to pump up your favorite energy-boosting drink.

All you need are your regular coffee brew but skip the milk and instead, add butter or coconut oil to make a vegan version of it. Some use MCT – derived from organic coconut oil. The reason for this is coconut oil is the fastest approved oil by your body, and it provides the fat that your body needs to produce energy and feel full for long periods of time.

This is also the reason for adding butter to it. You can spice things up by adding cocoa powder to make a yummy mocha drink, or if you like it spicy and full of flavor, you can add cinnamon, too. This concoction is sure to give you the boost that you need so that you can accomplish more throughout your day.

Dark Chocolate

And we’re referring to real, bitter, dark chocolate that’s made from cacao beans through a bean to bar process that yields a finished product that’s up to 76% bitter. The higher the percentage is, the better. It takes a little getting used to if you’re used to the idea of chocolate that tastes milkier and on the sweet side.

But bitter dark chocolate has high levels of antioxidant that gives you a boost of energy, by improving the blood flow throughout your body. It improves mental energy, which increases your capacity to focus and reduce mental fatigue, to boot.

Not ready to eat it on its own? Make a fondue melting dark chocolate and dip your fruits in it. Good pairings include bananas, strawberries, and even apples. The sweetness of the fruit will work well with the bitterness of the chocolate dip. It’s an amazing energy-boosting treat.

Goji Berries

If you have access to the fruit, by all means, stock up on them and even freeze them in small portions. You can stick it in the blender and add some more ice and water to make a fresh fruit shake. If you wish to sweeten it a bit, you can add stevia to it.

This fruit is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that sustain your energy levels even on the busiest days. It’s also a good source of fiber, for optimum food digestion to maximize the effects of energy giving food to your body, making you feel more energized and full longer.

It’s no surprise that these food items can be found on the list of keto-approved food. This is because of the high level of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that it contains. This is key to increasing your body’s energy level and to promote optimal food digestion so that your body can get more out of the food you eat.
