What causes low energy? Having high energy is something all of us strive for. But we still eat the same sugary breakfast and drink tons of caffeine, which ends up causing us to crash midday. So to get through the rest of the day we eat more sugar and drink more caffeine, and the cycle continues. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so making good breakfast choices is crucial to keep your energy up and sustained, as well as preventing any sort of crash.

It is important to limit sugary foods or drinks first thing in the morning. That isn't to say you can't have donuts or cinnamon rolls, it is perfectly fine to have sugar now and then. But if you were to only eat sweets and include no protein or carbs, you may start to feel consistently sluggish, and experience frequent headaches. Alternatively, if you consistently eat a healthy, balanced breakfast every day you will feel a rise in your overall energy levels, and avoid any harsh energy crashes.

Chia seeds promote long-term energy levels and are full of fiber. They can be added to your oatmeal, in smoothies, or made into chia pudding. Chia pudding is incredibly easy to make and you can add whatever you would like to it.

Oats are a wonderful breakfast, especially when served with fruit or nuts. The oats themselves are packed with protein and fiber, and topping it with fresh fruit or honey adds a sweet flavor while still being incredibly healthy.

If you like to make smoothies in the morning or are thinking of making the switch to green tea instead of coffee, lion's mane, oat fiber, flaxseed, and hemp hearts are perfect to incorporate more nutrients to your breakfast. Add them to your morning drink or your meal to help boost your energy.
