Most high school athletes are not everyday coffee drinkers. But when school drags you out of bed before the sun rises, a delicious wake-up call is a welcome treat. Instead of downing a cup of caffeine, try eating an apple.

Apples not only improve endurance for athletes [learn more here], they also wake you up in the morning. "The actual experience of eating an apple can stimulate your senses," say the folks at Sleepy News. "Apples are crisp and juicy, and biting into the texturous tissue sets your taste buds and teeth into motion."

The natural sugars in an apple also play a role in waking you up in the morning. They’re absorbed gradually, easily and far more naturally than the jolt of a caffeinated drink.

Instead of succumbing to the morning doldrums, bite into an apple. It's a healthy snack that requires no preparation—and it will put a bounce in your step as you start your day.
