Sure, pretty much anything you eat will give you some energy, as long as it has calories. But just as with your car, you could be filling your tank with high-octane gas or low-grade junk fuel. Get the best performance out of your body by adding these energy-enhancing superfoods to your diet.
As it turns out, the incredible, edible egg is an impressive source of quality protein, as well as vitamins A and D, which are important for energy metabolism. In addition, eggs are rich in choline, an essential nutrient that's a precursor for acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that fuels memory, muscle control and other brain functions. And you get all that for only about 75 calories per egg! Just know that you need to consume the yolk to reap the full energy-enhancing perks. People who don't have high cholesterol or other heart concerns may consume an egg per day without a problem, according to the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
