Dark Chocolate is in Our 10 Best List of High Energy Foods

 FLASH: Dark chocolate is one of the best foods to help boost physical energy

The good news, Dark chocolate is a relatively healthy and delicious way to boost our energy level.

The bad news, you can only have 2 squares so as not to completely ruin any calorie conscious diet you may be following.

The chocolate contains flavonoids, antioxidants, a stimulant called theobromine, and slight levels of caffeine that will provide energy. High quality dark chocolate is an excellent source of dietary fiber, magnesium, iron, manganese, copper, and trace minerals.

When choosing chocolate, keep in mind that this is not the milk chocolate bar near the checkout stand of the grocery store. Milk chocolate is more sugar than chocolate.

You are looking for chocolate that is 70% or higher cocoa content to enjoy its benefits.

So, eat Organic Dark chocolate with 85-92% cocoa, and likely 1 square is enough, it is for me. And add a few raw almonds for higher energy.

About 1 oz of almonds (12) will eliminate any magnesium and B Vitamin deficiencies that may be contributing to your low energy.

People who are deficient in magnesium and B Vitamins experience fatigue, irritability and are unable to concentrate.

A handful of almonds contain the same number of antioxidants as a cup of broccoli.

Almonds provide energy, beneficial fats, magnesium, Vitamins B, E, and antioxidants.
