Fighting Fatigue with Food – Miniseries Part 6 (The Finale!)

Lentils

Lentils are a super food because they provide carbohydrates, protein, and fiber which translates into a slow release of glucose. Lentils are also packed with B vitamins, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, calcium, and copper.  Sources to consider include navy beans, chickpeas, kidney beans, and black beans.

Leafy Greens

Folate can be helpful in reducing the risk of depression.  Folate can be found in dark leafy green vegetables, including spinach and romaine lettuce, legumes, nuts, and citrus fruits!
