Fuel foods provide your body with nutrients.
They give your body energy.
They sustain you.
Fresh foods that are less processed are great choices.
When you are planning what you will include in your nutrition plan look for foods that are less processed, full of nutrients, and provide you with energy instead of making you feel sluggish.
