  • Are you drinking enough water? Being even the teeniest bit dehydrated can leave you feeling droopy, so make sure that you are drinking at least 8 8oz glasses a day (add one glass for every caffeinated beverage, soda or energy drink).
    Eating meat and dairy, especially in the heat, can sap your energy, so can eating simple grains/whitefoods/bad carbs. Be sure that every day you are eating 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables (in at least 3 different colors); 6-7 servings of whole grains and at least two servings of legumes.
    If you would like some tasty, healthy, family and budget friendly recipes, please contact me.
    If you are drinking enough water and eating a "clean" diet, then you need to see a doctor; you may have a medical issue that is sapping youe energy.
