Diet plays a huge part in our health. If you want to remain healthy you need to eat good food, right? It sounds simple enough. Let’s not turn this into one of those talks where we list all the reasons people should eat healthy food. Instead let’s discuss how we can make our healthy diet better. Do you think you could eat better than you do now?
What if I told you there were better foods out there than you’re eating now. Super foods that put the rest to shame. If you don’t know what foods are great it’s obvious you will not have them in your diet. Let’s change that right now. Here are some super foods you could possibly be missing out on. Start eating them today.
When avocados are ripe they are lovely and creamy. There’s hundreds of things you can do with them. Some popular options are eating them with prawns or chopped up in a salad. They are full of healthy fats that we should all be eating more of. They are rich in calories so easy for people to reach their daily limit without touching carbohydrates. They also come packed with over 20 nutrients.
Again you have a very good source of healthy fats, probably the best in the world. Coconut oil contains lauric acid which is a fat that is not found much in nature. It’s just fantastic. It has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-protozoa properties and that’s just the beginning. It also includes a saturated fat which promotes weight loss, a healthy heart, and about a hundred other amazing qualities. Just start using it now.
Wild Alaskan Salmon
I’m sure we all know by now where out meat comes from. And unfortunately the fish we eat comes from no better sources. The fish we eat is contaminated and all the benefits you think you’re getting is not the actual amount your body gets. Wild Alaskan salmon is different. It’s caught in the wild and it still has great levels of omega-3. It’s also full of protein.
Nuts are great. If you’re not eating them then you obviously need to start. But not on those salted nuts that don’t help anyone. Out of all the nuts, you won’t find one better than the almond. That have nice healthy fats and contain lots of vitamins and minerals. Remember they must be raw. Once they’ve been heated they lose a lot of their qualities.
Kale is the ultimate super green. What does it not do? It’s a great anti-inflammatory, full of iron, bags of calcium, lots of protein, and it’s good for your immune system. The best way to have kale is in a smoothie. It’s very cheap and you can toss as much as you want into the mixer. It definitely deserves its place on the super food list.
It wasn’t long ago that people thought eggs were the devil in disguise. Oh how wrong were they? There was a lot of bad stuff said about eggs, mostly that it could cause high cholesterol. As well as being an excellent source of protein, eggs are great for your nervous and cardiovascular system. The protein is actually some of the best available. And they taste great.
Everyone should look inside the fridge now and throw away the margarine. It’s absolute garbage. Instead, go out and buy yourself some nice organic grass-fed butter. The difference between the two is night and day. It has lots of trace minerals, healthy fats and vitamins. And you’ll know you have the right one because it tastes absolutely delicious.
