Foods That Will Raise Your Energy

The saying is true… you are what you eat!

It is very true that foods have an emotional & physical energy around them. In my experience, living and raw foods such as plants and raw fruit will make you feel more alive.

Processed and dead food such as chemical-laden packaged foods or meat can bring you down. I always try to eat foods that will fuel my body, and give me energy!

Below you will find my suggestions for foods that bring up your energy — physically, emotionally, and spiritually… and foods that will weigh you down.

Foods that weigh you down — AKA “Low vibe” foods:

  • Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that has been treated with chemicals and pesticides

  • Sugars and sweeteners (artificial)

  • Coffee

  • Soda

  • Alcohol

  • Meat, fish, poultry

  • Processed, packaged, canned, and fast food

  • Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils

  • Frozen foods

  • Pasteurized cow’s milk, yogurt, and cheese

  • Cooked foods, deep fried foods, and microwaved food

Foods that will give you energy — AKA “high vibe” foods:

  • Fresh, certified organic fruits and vegetables

  • Natural supplements

  • Herbal teas

  • Herbs and spices

  • Pure or filtered water — reverse osmosis or freshly collected spring water are best

  • Healthy oils, like olive oil and coconut oil

  • Nuts and seeds

  • Fermented foods

  • Raw chocolate

  • Raw honey and maple syrup

  • Legumes

  • Grains such as buckwheat, brown rice, amaranth, and spelt

I’d love to know, comment below if you eat “mostly high vibe” or if you see room for improvement in your way of eating!
