Consume These Foods For A Healthy You!
Rather than going through the seemingly endless list of what you shouldn’t eat, here’s nine foods that you should, whether you’re trying to lose weight or just live a healthier lifestyle.
Antioxidant rich berries: Full of nutrients that fight cancer, improve and maintain vision, lower cholesterol, and aid in promoting and maintaining your overall health, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries can be added to just about anything at any meal for a sweet, tangy nutritional boost.
Nuts: High in non-animal protein and heart healthy fats, eating nuts regularly can help to keep you full between meals while protecting you from diabetes and boosting your metabolism.
Steel Cut Oatmeal: Leagues ahead of its powdered-fruit cousin that commonly comes in an envelope, old-fashioned oatmeal is low on the glycemic index while being high in fiber, making the time between breakfast and lunch that much easier to deal with.
Avocados: Eat them whole or mash them up and put them on a sandwich! These babies are high in monounsaturated fat and antioxidants that keep your heart healthy and your body running smoothly, well into old age.
Sweet potatoes: The regular potatoes’ healthier brother, eating sweet potatoes is like taking one massive multivitamin.
Whole Organic Eggs: Stop throwing that poor yolk away! High in nutrition, the minimal amount of extra calories found here is far outweighed by the health benefits of eating it.
Vegetables: If it’s green, leafy, or has a stalk or stem, it should be on your plate at two out of three meals, and some of the snacks!
Wild Salmon: The omega-3’s in wild fish help to keep your brain functioning at its best and actually aids in burning fat. If you can’t afford wild caught or dislike fish, a high-quality fish oil supplement can be beneficial as well.
Yogurt (Organic): Balancing your system and aiding in digestion, yogurt can help your body process all the other foods you eat!
