Every single day we keep promising ourselves that starting tomorrow, we’ll eat healthier and give up on all the unhealthy and bad habits that threaten our precious health. We even start to make diet plans, buy the necessary and healthy aliments and for a while, we manage to incorporate them in our daily meals. But are we really eating what’s best for us?
Are we really eating the right kind of foods that are necessary for our body and our well being?
Let’s find out together and after reading the list of the 10 foods that one should eat on a regular basis (and yes, this means every single day). There are 10 types of food that can provide a lot of healthy and desired benefits. Some people call them super foods, because they have so many cool and super powers on our bodies. In other words, if you manage to incorporate the list of foods that we have in store for you, you will be able to get the extra dose of health that you wish so much for!
So, if you’re interested in finding out what foods does the body need and what are the best nutrients for it, read the list below:
Flaxseed. Make sure to sprinkle them on any type of meal you want – from snacks and salads to fish and many other delicious types of food. If you want to know exactly how good are flaxseeds for your health, think that if you sprinkle a single teaspoon over the yogurt, cereals or the favorite salad, you gain 2,3 grams of fiber. The flaxseeds are proven to contain lots of micronutrients, especially the essential fatty acids, the vitamin B1, manganese and this only means that the flaxseeds are rich in antioxidants and omega 3 fats that are able to reduce the risk of developing health conditions such as cancer, type II diabetes and heart disease.
Beans contain a lot of soluble fibers which can soak up the cholesterol and in this way, beans help your body to depose the cholesterol before this can stick to the artery walls. Beans are also a good source of antioxidants, and you can incorporate them in your diet in many creative ways. Serve them as fresh as they are, put them in a salad or take a batch of chili and whip it with lots of kidney beans.
Blueberries. The best fruits you can eat every day, because they have more antioxidants than a lot more other common fruits. Yes, you know that all the berries are healthy and full with vitamins, but blueberries are the ones you should be eating every day, because they can prevent some of the urinary tract infections or they can soften a really dry skin. You can sprinkle them over a greek yogurt or make a fruit salad whose main ingredient are the blueberries, and have a delicious breakfast. And healthy, of course!
Yogurt. Your mornings are not the same if you don’t have a yogurt per day. Yogurt is rich in calcium, and they make an excellent source of probiotics, which are the healthy living bacteria from inside your body that helps you to keep a normal balance between the good bacteria and the bad bacteria. Probiotics do a lot of good for the stomach and prevent infections or illnesses of the digestive system. Specialists believe that if you have one yogurt per day you can prevent a lot of medical conditions such as infections, asthma, cancer, and several other gastrointestinal conditions.
Oats. They work perfectly with yogurts, so if you’ve decided to have a morning breakfast made of yogurt, improve it by adding a spoon of oats over it. Oats are known to have the ability of lowering the cholesterol levels and keep the blood pressure on a normal level. Oats are also believed to be able to reduce the risk of developing a heart disease, because they are high in beta-glucan.
Broccoli. They should be the number one choice you have when you think of vegetables, just as the blueberries when it comes to the fruits category. Broccoli contains lots of sulfur and it can detoxify the compounds in our bodies that can lead to causing the cancer. Broccoli is also able to increase the level of enzymes within our bodies. The best part of broccoli is that you can eat it uncooked or you can use it for salads or side dishes and so on. Some specialists believe that broccoli, as other cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower, radish, collards, kale, watercress, mustard greens and turnips, can easily diminish the risk of colorectal cancer and any other forms of cancer.
Eggs. Did you really think there was a list of 10 healthy foods without eggs on it? Impossible! And simply because the eggs are the best source of quality protein you’ll ever have. The eggs can give you a sense of fullness so you won’t have to snack every now and then. They are believed to be good for the eyes’ health as well. The eggs are very high in nutrients and vitamins. They can contain: folate, zinc, calcium, vitamin K, vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin B2, phosphorus, selenium, protein, essential fatty acids.
Spinach, because… why not? Especially if you know that the spinach is one of the greatest sources of vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, fiber, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium. Either you prefer to cook it in salads or eat it raw or even eat it with a chicken breast, the spinach is one of the foods you can’t miss. Specialists believe that spinach can prevent the development of the ovarian cancer.
Mixed nuts. Are you looking for a powerful source of healthy for the heart unsaturated fats? Mixed nuts are the right answer to this particular question. Some of the latest studies have revealed that the people that ate mixed nuts every day were likely to live with 2 more years than people who did not ate them. Are you wondering which nuts you should eat more? It is simple, pick up almonds and walnuts.
Oranges. They are rich in vitamin C and either you eat it raw or you make an orange juice out of a few ones, the healthy benefits are the same. Oranges are also very high in folate and fiber, and this makes it one of the best choices you can make for the fruits you have to eat on a daily basis. Fruits salad with oranges will increase your dose of healthy benefits for the body and duplicate the amount of vitamin C that the body needs in order to function properly.
