What do you do when you run out of energy but have to have some?

I find myself running out of energy before the day is half over. I have to keep going because of my responsibilities I have. Any suggestions what I can eat/do to get that boost to get to the end of the day without crashing?

  • It's going to sound gross, but it's not. A green smoothie . .
    couple handfuls of spinach a bit of water, a banana, add some cilantro, or avocado blend it up and drink it down!
    I promise, it's really tasty and energizing!!

    http://kimberlysnyder.net/category/recipes/smoothies-recipes/ glowing green smoothie near the bottom of the page. I don't always follow her recipes to the T but the green smoothies make a HUGE difference in my energy and overall feeling of health. Let me know what you think.

  • See a nutritionist if you can and get your diet set up for your day. You're crashing because you're not fuelling your machine right!

  • Thanks Allergic2Stupid. I already have my meals pre-made by a group of nutritionist due to my heath. Often I am tired because I don't get enough oxygen. But the hardest moments are after I've been sick and my immune system is down. It's hard to do anything because I'm so tired. Caffine helps but you crash and it robs you of B Vitimans. You are right, my machine isn't be fueled right. Hence forth my reason for needing help with ideas. I appreciate all your suggestions!
