How to Stay Energized

It is easy more than ever today to choose, a juice, tasty cheeseburger and golden fries with that bubbly coke on the side to wash it down. With mobile app ordering easily accessed at our fingertips and as though it may save us time in our busy schedules we have day to day, it may in fact be breaking our bank accounts more.

But, I am not going to be talking about money in this post. I have decided to do a comparison with eating fast food VS a healthy snack. It is true that the food we eat, will have a different affect on our bodies.

Last week, I had to make three of eating on the run. So, McDonald’s it was. Although I had been not eating McDonald’s since December 2017, those three days really took affect on me. I felt sick, I was tired, and moody. I said,

I cannot keep doing this. Things have to change here.

Where I work, they provide in the office, bananas, oranges, kiwi, apples. This week I totally took advantage of this, while bringing healthier choices of food that I prepared for myself during the week. Without stopping anywhere. I have noticed a big improvement this week, in my energy, my attitude has vastly changed this week. It’s just amazing what food can do to us.

I had been eating apples for about a good week now. It was like my body needed this source of food.
