Super Foods That Save the Day

Posted on 25. Mar, 2015 by in Wellness

They might not wear a cape like Superman, but super foods can do some pretty amazing things for your body. Foods that fall into the “super” category lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, reduce your cholesterol, and even boost your mood. Because these are not drugs, there are no pesky side effects to worry about.

Unprocessed Foods Are Best

What do all super foods have in common beside being good for you? They are natural, simple, and have not been processed. Nutritionists estimate that more than half of disease-related suffering could be eliminated if people skipped the potato chips and donuts, and loaded up on plates of super foods.

Foods to Include

Next time you stroll the aisles of your local supermarket, be sure to add these nutritious and delicious groceries to your cart:

  • Broccoli: This bright green veggie is packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and is available in most supermarkets throughout the year. It has a high fiber content to control your weight and make you feel full.
  • Beans: Eat the humble bean as a side-dish or let it substitute for meat. Beans are high in protein, magnesium, potassium, and carbohydrates.
  • Eggs | XLHealthBlog.comEggs: These simple ovoids contain 12 minerals and vitamins, are economical, portable, and versatile to cook with. Eggs boost memory and brain power.
  • Kiwis: Not only do kiwis have a beautiful internal green color, they fill your daily requirement of vitamin C. These fruits also provide vitamins A and E, potassium, and fiber.
  • Sweet Potatoes: Baked or mashed, sweet potatoes can fill in for white potatoes. Their dark orange color means they are nutrient-dense and packed with vitamin A.
  • Salmon | XLHealthBlog.comSalmon: Eat this pink fish twice a week to protect your heart. Salmon contains omega-3 fatty acids, which contributes to coronary health.

If you include these colorful and tasty items in your menu, you can curtail disease and improve your mood. Not only can super foods save the day, they can save your life.
