Ever since we turned the clocks back, I've been hearing from friends, family and clients that their energy level throughout the day hasn't been quite up to par. So, as any good nutritionist would do, I started to look into different foods that I could suggest they eat on a regular basis that perhaps could provide a little extra oomph to their day.

The following 10 foods are what I discovered to provide a boost of energy:

Coffee and Black Tea

Honestly, this is probably a no-brainer since we all know that caffeine can boost our energy levels. I would recommend though that added sugars and fats be kept to a minimum otherwise it would be counter-productive for one's health. Also, I would be careful not to exceed more than four cups of coffee a day as this may cause unpleasant side-effects such as jitters, insomnia, upset stomach and dizziness.
