Top 10 Health and Wellness Tips for more energy featured by top US life and style blog, Fresh Mommy Blog

Have you ever felt like you were running on empty? A LONG weekend recently felt that way for me as my household came down with some kind of bug, that even knocked me out for a solid two days straight. I could barely lift my head!

Thankfully, my superhero of a mom was in town and helped to take care of me since I could barely move without running to the bathroom – I didn’t keep any food down for two days. After that, I knew it was time to power back up, boost my immunity and get in plenty of “super-hero” food (what we like to call the healthy stuff, and my kids love it)!

In the spirit of “Powering the Hero Within” Dole’s 10-week empowered-living alliance with Marvel’s Captain Marvel, we’ve compiled these ten tips for everyday superhero women (like you + me, and our mama’s!):

6. Focus on Fiber:

Eat a variety of whole grains, fruit and vegetables including berries, broccoli and bananas. Fiber helps fill you up, keeps you regular and is good for heart health.

7. Avoid Convenience Pitfalls:

Snack on whole, minimally processed or packaged foods that are naturally lower in sugar and salt. Think unsalted nuts, whole fruits like bananas, and sliced veggies.

8. Bone up:

Fresh Herb White Bean Dip

Include calcium-packed foods in your diet to prevent bone density loss. Good sources are tofu, almonds, white beans and low-fat dairy.

9. Pump Up the Iron:

Boost iron stores by filling up on plant-based, iron-filled foods like lentils and almonds. Enhance your iron absorption by topping off an iron-fortified cereal with vitamin C-rich berries. With a little meal prep, Wake Up Oats are a tasty way to keep you full and energized. Later in the day, Sweet Apple Brussels and Lentils is a delicious way to bring vitamin C and iron together.

10. Recharge:
