Six foods to rev you up.
Here are six energy foods Rarback recommends for when you're feeling sluggish:

1. Water: Dehydration is a commonly overlooked cause of Fatigue.

2. Blackstrap molasses: This high-iron ingredient can be found in natural foods store.

3. Brown rice. The fiber will keep you fuller longer.

4. Veggie burgers: High in protein and low in fat, they can help ward off blood sugar crashes.

5. Fruit smoothies with low-fat yougurt: The little bit of protein and fat in the yogurt substains the quick energy provided by the fruit.

6. Fruits and Vegetables: High in filling fiber: unconventional sea vegetables like kelp, and nori (the green wrapping around your sushi) are rich in minerals like calcium and potassium that are important to using energy.
