There’s no doubt that most Americans need energy.

Always on the go, always rushing to the next event, always working non-stop — those of us in the United States sometimes are too busy to stop — even to eat. Therefore, having foods that not only are quick, but sustain or provide extra energy, is an added bonus.

Market research firm Mintel projects energy drink consumption to continue to rise, along with all-natural snacking products that deliver energy-filled ingredients, such as honey. Foods with nutritious grains, and those that are high in protein also are other great ways to pack your daily intake with a punch.

Core Power’s Honey 26g not only is marketed as a way to get a natural energy bump, but it also is touted as a way to boost athletic performance and endurance while reducing muscle fatigue. Honey combined with 26 grams of protein and 700 mg of calcium make this a power packed natural drink.

Take a break and recharge the batteries with Bonk Breaker’s Almond Butter and Honey Energy Bar. Bonk Breaker bars are the official energy bar of the Ironman Triathlon Series and are gluten-, soy- and dairy-free. The entire line is sweetened with honey and includes peanut butter and jelly, almond cherry chunk, fig and apple pie varieties.
