The next 20 or so days are the shortest, darkest days of the year. Here in New York, there are days when it gets dark as early as 4:30!
And yet, your to-do list is as long and important as ever. In fact, you probably have lots to do to make the upcoming holidays merry and bright despite the challenging year 2020 has been.
So it’s with that in mind that I’m sharing 15 recipes today that will energize your morning and your whole day. So even if it’s still dark for an hour or even two after you wake up, you can power through your tasks with abundant energy.
In general, you want to choose foods that include greens, which are high in chlorophyll and magnesium, two key energy boosters. Coconut, maca, avocado, and certain fruits are also energizing.
Many of these recipes are green smoothies, which pack a punch of natural energy and vitality. They also hydrate you, which is an important component of staying energized. Dehydration often masks itself as fatigue.
Without further ado, let’s run through these tasty recipes!
