Energizing Vegetables and Fruits

Other high-energy foods include fresh vegetables, which should constitute forty percent of the meal. Green, leafy vegetables are especially high in minerals and fiber, so should be eaten often.

Fruits are also a source of energy. You can start the day with a stewed apple, and if you feel hungry in between meals, try snacking on a juicy pear.

If you are feeling heavy and bloated after lunch, eat a fresh papaya, because they contain enzymes that aid digestion. If you have a strong digestion and more Pitta in your constitution, mangoes are a rich ojas-producing food, and half a mango contains 2 mg. beta-ccarotene and is a rich source of Vitamin C.
According to Ayurveda, raisins are among the best of fruits because they enhance sattva (purity), pacify the mind and heart and increase the coordination between them.

They are also a rich source of iron and Vitamin B6, and provide magnesium, calcium, zinc, and potassium. Raisins aid digestion and elimination when they are soaked in water overnight. One handful per person is a good amount.
