What you consume on a daily basis is so optimal to your overall health. We are not going to encourage crazy diets and fasting, but we are going to talk about foods you should be eating regularly. These are also known as ‘superfoods’, as they will leave you filling satisfied, energized, and positively benefit your health.
Blueberries – Blueberries, along with other types of berries are the go-to fruit. They are a great source of fiber, which helps keep your digestive system healthy and working properly. Berries can be enjoyed over some oats, or yogurt which is also great for you! Blueberries are also packed with anthocyanin and antioxidants that can help with memory.
Greens – Spinach is the best green you could eat. It is full of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce the risk of heart diseases and stroke. If you can eat 1 cup of fresh spinach a day, you will see the ultimate results. Not a fan of spinach? Kale is also a great veggie to eat regularly and has been trending the past few years. You can find lots of great kale salads at health conscious restaurants but be cautious on the dressings and toppings mixed in. Broccoli is another superfood that is full of Vitamins A, C, and K which helps with bone health.
Walnuts – Nuts are good for you but walnuts are the most beneficial! They are loaded with Omega-3s, anti-inflammatory polyphenols, and protein. A serving of walnuts—about 1 ounce, or 7 nuts—is good anytime, but especially as a post-workout recovery snack.
Beetroots – Beetroots, you either love em or hate em, but eating them daily has great benefits. Studies have shown that consuming beetroots regularly can boost brain activity, improve aerobic performance and help stop arthritis. These days you can find a selection of delicious beetroot juices at your local grocery store which are practically just as nutritious as eating them raw. Just make sure your juice is not packed with unneeded extra sugar.
Oats – Oats might be your favorite on this list and yes they are full of carbs but because of their fiber, the release of their sugars is slowed down. They also have 10 grams of protein for 1/2 cup serving which helps fuel your body with energy. Mix oats with fresh berries for a perfect start to your day.
Try mixing in a couple of these items into your daily nutrition and you will start seeing and feeling positive results.
