10 Foods That Fight Fatigue

Dozing off at your desk? Instead of reaching for an elixir that touts to take your energy level off the charts, make sure your meals and snacks include these naturally energizing eats.

Nuts pack both protein and fiber, which help boost energy and then keep it stable, say Lakatos and Shames. “They’re also great for replenishing and boosting energy after a workout.

Bonus: These nuts serve up a healthy dose of magnesium.
