She explained, "If you’re deficient in magnesium, your likelihood of feeling fatigued even after a good night’s sleep is increased."Snyder recommends these magnesium rich foods:* Leafy greens (especially Swiss chard and spinach)* Quinoa* Pumpkin seeds* Sesame seeds* Sunflower seeds* Almonds, Brazil nuts* Tempeh* MilletOk, time for a taste test!Up your magnesium intake with this Quin-Spin-Cado Salad:td-quinoa-spinach-avocado- 1 cup of Quinoa- 2 cups of spinach- 1/4 avocado (chopped)- 1/2 tbsp of coconut aminos sauce (soy sauce replacement)Make a bed of spinach, add a generous scoop of quinoa (save the rest for later!), and toss in chopped avocado.
