Just two more days until the weekend! You can make it—just eat one of these seven magnesium-rich (energy promoting) foods for your energy boost! Magnesium aids in energy metabolism, so be sure to get enough!

Men need 420 mg daily and women need 320 mg daily, which can easily be obtained if you include magnesium-rich foods: (all based on 100 gram serving)

  • Seaweed (121 mg)
  • Sun-dried tomatoes (194 mg)
  • Dried Shitake Mushrooms (162 mg)
  • Navy Beans (111 mg)
  • Soybeans (65 mg)
  • Kale, Spinach and Chard (81 mg)
  • Beet Greens (68 mg)

Magnesium is also found in nuts and seeds, especially pumpkin seeds and whole grains like quinoa, brown rice, and buckwheat. So eat up to boost your energy!

We’re going for the kale and seaweed tonight for dinner. Whatcha having?

FYI: Magnesium helps create strong bones, is involved in nerve signaling and helps with regulating blood pressure.
