energy issue.....

well i feel kind of dumb asking this but i take multi vitamins and super b comlex everyday and i work out every morning because these are things my doc said would help with my energy but they really arent much. i have these energy spurts very couple of days but most days i feel drained. my baby still gets up 2-3 times each night at 5 months old and my 3 year old wakes up around 6:30 every a.m. and i get my 8 year old ready for school around 7. it doesnt seem like i do enough to have no energy. any ideas for extra energy boost on top of what i am doing?

  • Are you drinking enough water? Being even the teeniest bit dehydrated can leave you feeling droopy. Animal products, especially meat, can leave sap your energy. Highly processed foods, like high fructose corn syrup and white flour, also can leave you feeling weak. Fill your diet with fruits, vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Send me a message offlist if you would like recipes or meal ideas.
