Fighting Fatigue with Food – Miniseries Part 3

Be A “5 to 9” Fan

Eating 5-9 servings of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables will allow your energy levels to soar!  Fresh produce will help keep you hydrated because they are filled with water! The more color you can add to your day through a variety of fruit and vegetable colors, the better!  For example, bananas are easily digested and provide a lot of potassium which helps maintain normal nerve and muscle function.  Times of stress or during strenuous exercise can cause potassium levels to drop since the body does not store potassium for long periods of time.  Other great snacks include apples, grapes, peaches, and pineapples!
