Food as Energy

Your body relies on the energy and nutrients you get from food, so what you eat — and when you eat it — can either drain you or sustain you.

Whenever you go more than a few hours without eating, your blood sugar drops, and that may be bad news for your energy. Plan on refueling with a healthy snack or meal every few hours to keep your blood sugar steady. And never skip breakfast! Eat something within an hour of waking, when your blood sugar is lowest. Choosing a breakfast with either soluble fiber or insoluble fiber — the kind in beans, fruits, vegetables and whole grains — actually protects against blood sugar spikes and crashes later in the day.

Frozen Produce is as Nutritious as Fresh

If you don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, here’s a fact you should know: Frozen produce is as nutritious as fresh.

Do you move past the frozen vegetable section because you believe them to be nutritionally inferior to fresh produce? Believe it or not, frozen fruits and vegetables retain just as many nutrients as their fresh counterparts. While fresh produce starts out with higher vitamin content than frozen, it may lose much of its nutrition by the time you eat it, depending on the distance to its final destination. As long as frozen fruits and vegetables aren’t packed with added sugar, salt or syrups, they are a perfectly healthy way to get your daily quota.
