Whole Foods For High Energy

Whole foods for high energy are also very important for your body. Seeds, grains and nuts contain all the important nutrients essential for growth and maintaining optimum health. These include fatty acids which are essential for increasing the body’s energy levels and reducing fatigue.

The protein content of seeds is higher than meat and are the highest protein vegetable. Seeds contain nearly all essential amino acids the body needs. Seeds are best consumed raw and need to be chewed thoroughly prior to swallowing, as they need to be broken down. Other methods are to soak overnight, grind in a coffee mill or liquefy in a blender as part of a health drink or smoothie.


Nuts are best eaten fresh and raw, with the most nutritious being almonds, hazelnuts and peanuts.


Grains such as millet and buckwheat are best for increasing energy levels, with protein levels comparable to red meat. Grains must be cooked in order to release all of the vital minerals. Sprouting grains also contain and release these essential minerals.


Beans and legumes are a complete source of protein, in particular, soybeans.  Beans and legumes should not be eaten raw.


Avocados contain complete nutrition  –  proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals.


Mushrooms are low in calories and are an excellent source of vitamins (in particular the B group of vitamins) and are high in riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid. Mushrooms are an excellent source of potassium and copper as well as other minerals. 70 to 90% of mushroom protein can be easily digested due to their essential amino acid content.  Mushrooms are best eaten raw or lightly cooked.


The humble potato is high in protein and complex carbohydrates.
