8 Foods to Beat Fatigue

As a new mom, you probably know a thing or two about feeling tired. Did you know, though, that the foods you eat can have a major impact on your energy level? Opting for a handful of nuts or dried fruit over a white-flour bagel won't just save you calories. It'll also help you fight hunger and give you energy. It's all in the choices. We recently featured eight power foods to help fill your tummy and wake you up. Here are just a few of them:

  • Nuts: As we mentioned, these little guys are powerhouses! Almonds in particular provide lots of energy and can help you stay full without contributing to weight gain
  • Low-Fat Dairy: Cottage cheese and yogurt are two of the healthiest things you can add to your diet. They're relatively low in calories, they taste great and the calcium doesn't hurt either
  • Complex Carbs: Look beyond white bread to whole-grain crackers, oatmeal and high-fiber cereals
  • Vitamin C: Whether you choose oranges, tangerines or pineapple, these nutrient-dense fruits are a delicious way to give your body a boost
  • Salmon: Does it get any better than this? Salmon is loaded with heart-healthy omega-3s and is a great source of lean protein
In other words, eat up!

Until next week,
