12 Energy-Boosting Recipes Packed with Vitamin B

Vitamin B complex, which includes B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12, is often pegged as an energy booster. Beyond its ability to convert food into energy, B vitamins are essential for growth, development and other important bodily functions. Deficiency of certain B vitamins can lead to serious conditions, from anemia and fatigue to depression, respiratory infections and birth defects, according to registered dietitian Tanya Zuckerbrot.

While B-complex supplements are often easy to spot in drugstores and health food shops, it’s possible to obtain enough of them by eating a balanced diet. “B vitamins are found in plant and animal food sources and relatively small amounts will meet recommended dietary intakes,” says Zuckerbrot, author of The Miracle Carb Diet: Make Calories and Fat Disappear — with Fiber and The F-Factor Diet. Whip up some of these vitamin B-rich recipes to ensure you’re capitalizing on B’s many benefits.

12 Vitamin B-Packed Recipes

1. Whole-Grain Raspberry Jam Bars
Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or snack, these tasty bars are low in the calorie department, but full of a range of B vitamins and healthy fats from flax seeds, walnuts and wheat germ. Both sweet and tart, these bars could easily pass as a healthy dessert too.
Vitamin B benefits: Whole-wheat flour is a good source of B1, B3 and B6 wheat germ provides B1, B6 and B9 walnuts are a good source of B6 and flaxseeds deliver plenty of B1 as well.

2. Homemade Beet Hummus
This vibrant, deep red hummus provides all the healthy benefits of traditional hummus — such as six grams of protein and five grams of fiber per quarter-cup serving — plus the phytochemical antioxidants and vitamin B9 of beets. And keep this in mind next time you fuel for a workout: Bumping up beet consumption has been linked to improved running performance.
Vitamin B benefits: Beets are a solid source of B9.

3. White Wine Mussels
Plain and simple: Mussels are a vitamin B powerhouse. In fact, 20 of the tasty shellfish supply 400 percent of the recommended daily value of B12. This recipe is a breeze — sauté some shallots, garlic and chili pepper, then add mussels with white wine, a little olive oil and some lime juice. Top with cilantro and enjoy!
Vitamin B benefits: Mussels are an excellent source of B2 and B12.

4. Quinoa Vegetarian Chili
Featuring low-calorie, high-nutrient ingredients including quinoa, pinto beans and black beans, this healthy recipe is both comforting and filling. A one-cup serving packs 17 grams of vegan protein and 12 grams of fiber. To add in a dose of vitamin B6, top the chili with some sliced avocado.
Vitamin B benefits: Black beans and kidney beans are good sources of B9 and B1, while quinoa and corn offer plenty of B9.

5. Balsamic Ginger Soba Noodles
Simple yet satisfying, this quick lunch is a healthy diversion from tiresome salads. Carrots, zucchini and edamame add color and crunch while nutty soba noodles serve as the base. Not a fan of julienning? To save time and energy, invest in a julienne peeler for perfect matchstick carrots and zucchini (and more reason to eat your veggies!).
Vitamin B benefits: Soba noodles are a solid source of B3, edamame adds B9, and tofu brings in B1.

6. Kale Barley and Feta Salad
This salad has a little something for everyone with crunchy sunflower seeds, salty feta cheese (which is lower in fat and calories than most cheeses), and a tangy homemade lemon vinaigrette. To cut down on toughness and bitterness, marinate the raw kale for at least 30 minutes before eating.
Vitamin B benefits: Barley provides B3, B6 and B7, feta offers B2, B6 and B12, and avocado delivers the B5. Bonus: Chickpeas are a worthy source of B9.

7. Grilled Pesto Salmon Kebabs
When it comes to packing in super-high levels of multiple B vitamins, salmon is the crown jewel. The pesto that tops these simple kebabs is a bit lighter than usual by removing pine nuts, but rest assured, the salty, savory flavors come through thanks to plenty of basil and Parmesan cheese.
Vitamin B benefits: Salmon is a good source of B1, B3, B5 B6 and B12.

8. Sweet and Savory Rosemary Pecans
Snack on pecans alone and you’ll get a healthy dose of B1. But why not jazz them up with fresh rosemary, a sprinkle of sesame seeds, some sea salt and Demerara, or “raw,” sugar. Pecans are also a great source of monounsaturated fatty acids, which have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.
Vitamin B benefits: Pecans are a good source of B1.

9. Green Power Salad with Roasted Veggies
With a powerful combo including spinach, pecans, eggs and garbanzo beans, this bright and beautiful salad contains an impressive 20 grams of protein. This dish features warm roasted veggies on top, but feel free to pop those in the refrigerator before serving if a completely chilled salad is more your speed. Pair with the yellow-hued and nutty homemade balsamic almond and turmeric dressing that’s just 67 calories for a two-tablespoon serving.
Vitamin B benefits: Spinach, chickpeas and Brussels sprouts are good sources of B9, while eggs offer plenty of B12. Pecans add B1, avocadoes offer B5 and B9, and sweet potatoes sweeten the deal with B6.
Photo and recipe: Kaylee / Lemons and Basil

10. Mac and Cheese Scrambled Eggs
This healthier take on mac and cheese can easily pass as breakfast, lunch or dinner. Just a cup of the rich, creamy and lower-carb pasta dish boasts 36 grams of protein, which primarily comes from B2-rich eggs, reduced-fat cheddar and turkey bacon.
Vitamin B benefits: Whole-wheat pasta is a good source of B1, while eggs deliver B2. Cheese is also a good source of B12 and turkey bacon brings home the B2 and B3.

11. Root Vegetable Red Lentil Stew
This hearty stew swaps meat for red lentils, which contain the third-highest level of protein of all legumes and nuts. It’s also loaded with root veggies, which are easy to store and enjoy all winter long. Double the batch and freeze some for a busy night down the road.
Vitamin B benefits: Lentils are a good source of B1, B5 B6 and B9, parsnips pack in the B9, while potatoes deliver a hit of B6.
Photo and recipe: Renee Blair / DailyBurn Life

12. Bruschetta with Smoked Salmon Asparagus and Poached Eggs
As a classy and nutritious brunch or snack, these smoked salmon and poached egg-topped toasts fit the bill. Want more beneficial Bs and fiber? Swap out the sourdough bread for sprouted whole grain. The process of sprouting grains before grinding and baking them into bread retains more nutrients and more protein as well as about 75 percent of the carbohydrates and 40 percent of the fat found in conventional whole grains.
Vitamin B benefits: Smoked salmon is an excellent source of B3 and B12, while eggs add in B2 and some extra B12. Asparagus is also a good source of B9 and sprouted whole grain bread adds a hit of B1.

Karolina Kurkova Shares Her Beauty Nutrition Secrets

I love reading celebrities' and models' advice about beauty and diet. Sometimes their ideas are completely crazy, but quite often they are spot on. After years in the business, many models and actresses understand that the foods you put into your body shape your beauty– so they'd better be good!

This week I found a fantastic Style.com interview with model Karolina Kurkova, who recently taught the cast of America's Next Top Model about the necessity of good nutrition for beauty.

Check out her advice, and her favorite healthy eats:

Was focusing on the topic of healthy eating something they brought up or is that more of a personal soapbox?

"A lot of these girls don’t know how to take care of themselves. They have misconceptions that to be a size zero, you can’t eat or you can only have things that are really plain and boring. I definitely can’t live on lettuce and water! I’m very organic I like to eat natural foods and exercise. You really have to take care of yourself from within. This was an important message for me to get across, especially when I heard that the girls were eating fried Oreos—and they wondered why their skin was so bad! When you eat well, you feel good, and that shows."

Is cooking a passion of yours, then?

"When I’m home, I try to cook as much as I can. I like to prepare healthy meals with quinoa and brown rice, and I snack on fresh nut milk made from scratch. I also love this green fruit smoothie, which I made on the episode. It’s hard to win over girls who are used to eating chips, but they liked it. When I left, I actually gave them the blender and basket of fruit and vegetables as a gift. I’m trying to show them that good food can be tasty. I’ve also been getting into different cookbooks, and I actually just came back from We Care in Palm Spring, where I did a juice cleanse."


7. Juicing can help combat dehydration.

If you are like me, remembering to drink enough water can be quite a chore. If you juice regularly, you can help stay hydrated, as long as you juice fruits and veggies with a high water content. Try this hydrating recipe from fromthegroundupwellness.com:

Hydrate

  • 3 leaves kale, destemmed
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 1&Prime piece of ginger
  • 1/2 lemon, peeled
  • 1 medium carrot (optional)

Thai Green Curry Paste

Be a Green Smoothie Pro (and Get Great Skin) with Green for Life

In my coaching practice, one of my favorite ways to get my clients feeling and looking their best is to incorporate more alkaline foods into their diet. Most Americans rely on a diet that's heavy in processed foods, meat, sugar and alcohol– all foods that increase levels of acid in the body. Start fitting in more alkaline foods (greens, lemon juice, figs, lentils are a few) and you will see the visible effects in your skin and feel the balance in your body!

While there are many, many alkaline foods (check out a chart here), greens seem to be the ones with the most profound healing powers. And the best book I've seen on the healing powers of greens is Green for Life by Victoria Boutenko. Boutenko's amazing and inspiring book has just been released in its second, updated edition and it's better than ever!

What's so special about greens? We know that they provide essential vitamins and trace minerals and are alkalizing to the body. They're also an important source of chlorophyll, a substance with amazing healing potential. Chlorophyll has been shown to: help purify the liver, improve vision, improve varicose veins, regulate menstruation, improve anemic conditions, eliminate body odors and help prevent cancer, among other things.

Green for Life is impossible to read without craving a fresh, green smoothie. Why? The information and stories in the book (including dozens of first person experiences from those who changed their diets after reading the first edition of Green for Life) are compelling, even shocking, and offer the promise of healing for any of us with health and skin issues.

How can you get started? Boutenko encourages consumption of a quart of green smoothie each day and provides an ample list of recipes for sweet and savory smoothies and green smoothie puddings in her book. If you've been struggling with a chronic health or skin problem–or you just want to feel your best– I encourage you to pick up this influential book and start getting greens into your daily routine!


Whole Fruit vs. Blended Fruit

Surely you know that smoothies are better for you than juices because they retain the fiber content of the fruit/vegetable, but have you asked yourself if a fruit smoothie has the same effect on your body as whole fruit? The answer may surprise you!

This question came up today because a friend of mine has been on Weight Watchers for the past few months, and she was recently switched from PointsPlus to the new SmartPoints program. Under PointsPlus, most fruits and vegetables counted as zero point foods. With the updated points system, whole fruit is still zero points, but blended fruit (i.e. fruit in smoothies) has a SmartPoints value.

My friend said she and everyone else at her Weight Watchers meeting were very frustrated at this change. After all, fruit in a smoothie still technically contains the whole fruit! What gives?

If you’ve been wondering the same thing, I tried to dig up some science to explain it. It surprised me that there isn’t more evidence available documenting the effect of blending a food on glycemic index, satiety, and nutrient absorption. Here’s what I found, though:

  1. A 2007 study published in the International Journal of Obesity studied the effect of liquid meals vs. solid meals on satiety. The results showed that participants consumed on average 12% more calories per day when drinking a carbohydrate-rich drink. This suggests that drinking a blended fruit smoothie is less filling than eating a calorically equivalent portion of fruit. This is likely attributed to the fact that eating fruit takes longer than drinking it. Satiety signals are released as a hormones from the gut, and these must circulate through the bloodstream to your brain before you realize you’re full. That’s why waiting 15-20 minutes after eating a meal before deciding to eat a second helping is a good practice to adopt to avoid overeating.
  2. Chewing increases satiety. This has been documented in a study published in The British Journal of Nutrition in 2013. More chewing led to an increase in secretion of CCK in the gut (hormone that decreases appetite) and decreased secretion of ghrelin (hormone that increases appetite).
  3. Blending fruit changes the insoluble fiber contained in it. While it’s not accurate to say that blending fruit “destroys” the fiber, it does “change” it by breaking it into smaller particles. When you break the fiber compounds into smaller pieces, different things can happen, as explained in The Journal of Food Science article here. This is where the science gets sparse. Robert Lustig, MD, professor of pediatrics at University of California, suggests that blending fruit fiber has a negative effect on the glycemic index of foods. “The blades destroy the insoluble fiber, which means that the ‘gel’ that forms on the inside of the intestine has no structure. The sugar is absorbed at a maximal rate, overwhelming the liver’s capacity to metabolize the sugar, and the excess sugar is turned into liver fat which is the precursor to metabolic syndrome.” (Quote from Time magazine article April, 2015) That sounds reasonable to me, but I would much prefer a peer reviewed article cited to back that claim up!
    **If you want to completely nerd out over the food science of stuff that affects glycemic index, read this as well.

These factors combined help to explain why eating the whole, unprocessed version of a food is more filling than eating a blended, juiced, or puffed version of it. This also helps to explain why pureed or blended fruits have SmartPoints under the new Weight Watchers program. I hope that helps clear things up! Hit me up in the comments if you’d like to see more questions like this answered in the future.


What 20 Celebs With The Flattest Abs Eat Every Day

Gawk and learn: These celebrities have abs for days. Here's how they fuel up.

Don't forget to pin it for later!

Aniston's yoga-formed abs have been famous for decades, and her healthy diet keeps them taut. Pasta is her guilty pleasure, but she'll put a skinny spin on it, like using veggie strips (zucchini and eggplant work well) in place of lasagna noodles. Her lunches veer basic&mdashsalad and a form of protein&mdashand she keeps the fridge stocked with easy-to-grab snacks, like hard-boiled eggs, cut vegetables, and pulled chicken.

The supermodel fuels up with hearty breakfasts&mdashlike a veggie-heavy egg scramble or a yogurt bowl&mdashand keeps her energy levels high with an afternoon smoothie. Kurkova's favorite blend includes strawberries, blueberries, bananas, almond butter, coconut milk, and chocolate coconut protein. The rest of her meals follow a strict but easy formula: protein plus veggies.

Since winning American Idol and entering the spotlight, Underwood has turned into a fitness lover. and a vegan. She regularly keeps a food journal, and it's filled with things like English muffins with peanut butter, No Cow Bars, and tofu scrambles &mdash plus the occasional veggie burger.

When Brinkley graced the pages of the Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition in 2017, readers freaked at how the 63-year-old's body looked as fit as ever. She doesn't follow a diet, per se, just keeps one that's well-balanced. That means, breakfast is full of yogurt and fruit or a protein-heavy egg-white omelet. For lunch, she sticks to salads that usually include last night's leftover grains or beans. But don't think she skips out on sweets altogether: She splurges on a Gnosis Pom Acai raw chocolate bar every single day.

Dewan exercises a ton, but she's also strict about what she eats. Every day starts with a green smoothie (spinach, kale, lemon, apple, banana, black sesame seeds, and cod liver oil), and Dewan swears it makes her skin, hair, and energy better. She tends to go for grain salads for lunch&mdash tabbouleh and quinoa with greens are her favorites&mdashand brown rice bowls with plenty of veggies at night.

Saldana lost around 70 pounds, which she gained while pregnant with her twins, to reprise her role as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy. She followed the 80/20 rule (80 percent healthy food, 20 percent not-so nutritious). Her breakfast always has something green, whether it's avocado or green juice, but her snacks are a little more indulgent: She loves flavored popcorn. As for heavier meals, like ones post-workout, she aims to refuel with protein, so chicken with quinoa and veggies is often in rotation.

An Olympic gold medalist knows a thing or two about staying healthy, but Douglas's food diary isn't disgustingly boring. It includes gingerbread and chocolate desserts. Breakfast starts clean, with tea, oatmeal, and banana, and lunch and dinner are just as healthy: chicken or salmon with cooked vegetables.

The reality star turned entrepreneur doesn't believe in traditional "diet foods." Instead she just avoids processed foods and anything containing GMOs. She often starts her days with a green smoothie with an unexpected ingredient: peppermint extract, which she swears makes the thing taste like a mint ice cream shake. She's also the queen of healthy snacks: zucchini chips, homemade fruit leather, and hummus are some favorites.

Hough maintains her dancer bod with exercise and good eats. She loves steamed eggs with tomato and avocado to refuel after a workout and prefers healthy wraps with salad for lunch. Day to day, her dinner is the typical protein-veggie combo, but not on Sundays. She refers to those as Sunday Fundays, and loosens up with pizza, candy, and wine.

Leave it to Swift to show up every green juice drinker in Hollywood with buckwheat pancakes for breakfast. She tops them with ham and a fried egg, and always has a glass of OJ. Monday through Friday, she keeps things basic, with salads, yogurt, and sandwiches and no sugary drinks. But on the weekends, she taps into her sweet tooth: She's an expert baker.

Even though people say it's the most important meal of the day, Hudson struggles to eat breakfast since she doesn't typically wake up hungry. Still, she tries to slam down a green juice or a protein shake. Everything she eats the rest of the day follows her high-alkaline diet, which means she avoids acidic foods. She relies on salads and other plant-based dishes.

The model is a big fan of cooking, and she tries to make only nutritious, organic meals. She's an expert baker, too. Most importantly though, she drinks 8 cups of water every day&mdashand that's just before lunch.

Ripa doesn't eat until after she films Live with Kelly and Ryan, and then breakfast is usually yogurt and granola. She keeps her meals basic, but always clean. On any given day, you might find her enjoying chicken breast with sautéed spinach or salad, and she always stocks her fridge with fruits and veggies for snacking. Ripa does have one guilty pleasure that she can't kick though: Pepperidge Farm Goldfish.

Girlfriend can cook, which you know unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years. But her daily diet's not as indulgent as social media makes it seem. Teigen doesn't have carbs for breakfast she calls herself an eggs girl. She'll eat heartier meals at dinner &mdash sometimes a big hunk of meat &mdash but dessert's not her thing. She's even been known to have hard-boiled eggs as a midnight snack.

When Alba hired a nutritionist, the two completely overhauled the actress's diet. Now, Alba sips on a smoothie nearly every morning this avocado and almond milk one cleared her skin. Her go-to snack is guacamole, and she makes sure every meal hits four groups: protein, fat, fiber, and greens.

Bundchen and her pro ball hubby Tom Brady aren't vegan, but they're pretty close. She follows an 80 percent vegetable, 20 percent lean meat diet. Often, that includes fresh fruit and vegetables, vegetable soup, and quinoa bowls, but Bundchen's known around the house for her epic green juice. Even her kids are big fans.

Rimes loves healthy proteins like fish, chicken, and lean turkey, plus a lot of fresh vegetables. She has fresh fruit too, but never after mid-afternoon, since her trainer says the sugar in it is harder to process later in the day. In recent years, she's allowed herself a few more treats, like bites of her kids mac and cheese and goat cheese &mdash lots of it.

Lopez's diet is more about what she doesn't consume than what she does. On the no list: anything processed, alcohol, and caffeine. A typical lunch might include salmon with salad and protein shakes help her stave off cravings in between meals.

All it takes is one role to whip your butt into shape: For Munn, that was Psylocke in X-Men Apocalypse. She focused on eating anything you could find in a farmers market, and started every day with a smoothie. During filming, Munn got most of her protein from nuts and seeds.

Michele is constantly exercising&mdashyoga, SoulCycle, you name it&mdashin her Instagrams, and her diet's just as well documented. She's vegetarian (with the occasional vegan stint), so breakfast is often avocado toast, with egg for extra protein. For the most part, she avoids gluten, too.

Here's Exactly What Ashley Graham Eats In A Day

The queen of body positivity &mdash we're talking owning her cellulite and wearing nothing but bagels on her boobs &mdash doesn't diet. She eats healthy, that's for sure, but with her ass-kicking workout routines, Graham's not afraid to splurge on the finer things in life &hellip like pizza crust dipped in Nutella. Here's what she eats every day.

She doesn't go a day without having one particular drink.

Graham feels about green juice the way most people do about apples: one a day keeps the doctor away, she told StyleCaster. Her favorite combo is a blend of kale (sometimes she adds spinach, too), lemon, ginger, beets, apple, and parsley. Graham will also reach for a bottle of East Coast chain Juice Press's Green Giant when she's on the go. It's got most of the same ingredients, plus a little kick, thanks to cayenne powder.

Ashley rarely puts this in her lunches.

"I try not to eat meat until night," she revealed on Good Morning America, since she doesn't digest it as quickly. Her lunches are still packed with protein, though. "I'll have a huge green salad with quinoa, carrots, tomatoes, avocado, any green leafy vegetable and pesto sauce as the dressing." She's also a fan of quinoa and brown rice bowls with veggies and tahini.

Her favorite dinners include sweet potatoes.

Whenever Graham is asked about her go-to meals, she mentions the starch. "I will have a sweet potato and vegetables lightly sautéed with olive oil, or chicken with Brussels sprouts," she told Good Morning America. To StyleCaster, she echoed the sweet potato sentiment and said she also likes to enjoy them with arugula and baked salmon.

Ashley doesn't cut out snacks.

Apples and bananas are common. "I'll have fruit that I can grab and eat on the train with me," the New York-based model said. She'll also reach for a few squares of a super-dark chocolate bar in the afternoon when she's having an energy crash.

She's a big proponent of a balanced diet.

But it's not the kind of balanced diet you were taught about in school. It's more the let your healthy-eating self off the hook every once in a while kind of balanced diet. Graham's trainer puts her through intense workouts at least three times a week, which allows for a little wiggle room in what she eats. Her splurges? Mashed potatoes and mac and cheese.

Her insane pizza hack will change your life.

It's like a meal and dessert in one sitting. "I will go fat girl on a big pizza pie and then take the crust and dip it in Nutella," she has said.
