We all know the feeling - even with a full night's sleep, we sometimes start the day feeling sluggish and lethargic. And then we make the mistake of of speed-eating a chocolate bar because we think, "Hey, why not, my body needs energy!". We do get that burst of up-and-at-'em, but soon after, we deflate faster than a stray party balloon.

Experts say the best way to boost energy levels would be to eat the right foods - usually those high in iron (which delivers oxygen to cells and improves overall immunity) and protein (to support the function of everything from your metabolism to nutrition-absorption). Here are some options to stock up on, for your home or work cube.
