We all live busy days. Whether it’s work or taking care of the kids, we all need energy to survive. Energy is what fuels our bodies to continue on without wasting away and shutting down (i.e. getting sick or stressed). Eating the right foods daily can help transform your body and provide the needed energy boost to protect the way your body functions as well as prevent future illnesses from developing.
Known as an “energy elixir”, green tea is loaded with antioxidants and energy boosting properties that can help provide your body with a great “pick me up” with a safe caffeine delivery to your temple.

Staying away from processed junk and incorporating better food choices will dramatically increase the energy that is needed to stay strong.
