The Energizing Superfoods We're Stocking Up on for Spring

Warmer temperatures have us ready for Spring, and what better way to get ready than by stocking our pantries full of seasonal superfoods?

Topping our list will be the most energizing items to help us power through longer, warmer days. Versatile and easy to incorporate into your daily diet, here’s a look at the energy-boosting superfoods to stock up on this Spring!

1. Flax seed powder

Flax seed powder is comprised of 20% Omega-3 fatty acids, 20 times more than that found in fish oil, and more than any other plant food known. Research has shown that people who consume more Omega-3’s are more likely to have stable energy levels and a strong immune system. A daily dose of flax seed powder can help you feel more energized on a consistent basis.

3. Maca Root Powder

Maca is an adaptogen that helps the body resist the effects of disease and physical and emotional stress. This helps restore our energy to its optimal levels. For a bonus boost, combine with goji berries and wheatgrass powder, both of which have been said to improve energy and stamina, and are often added to energy bars.
