“I'm strong to the finish, 'cause I eats me spinach," once said Popeye the sailor man. And he's right. Spinach provides vitamin B to the body. Vitamin B gives you energy while also playing important roles in enzyme production. When you're feeling apathetic, or lack a drive to get out of bed in the morning, incorporate spinach into your diet to give you that extra energy boost. When looking at supplements, vitamin B12, B6, and Folate all work to energize you. Other good sources of B vitamins include:

1. Bananas

2. Chicken

3. Shellfish

Incorporating vitamin B into your diet may be the easiest change since it is so readily available. Consider having a banana for breakfast everyday and using chicken as a primary source of protein.
