These days everyone is in an attempt to include superfoods in their diet. What is that you ask? Well, they are nutrient dense foods with high healing potential. Taking these on a regular basis will help with lowering cholesterol; reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, blood pressure.
These food items also help in lifting your mood, slowing down the ageing process, eliminate depression and boost physical abilities. To add to the benefits, there are no side effects to them, unlike the tons of medicines that doctors prescribe for all the problems that I mentioned above.
The myth associated with superfoods is that they are fancy,expensive and imported such as Chia Seeds or Goji Berry, but the truth is that you do not need to go that route.
There are so many superfoods in our own kitchen that we eat on an everyday basis. I try and make it a point of including some or most of them throughout the day in my meals and would urge you all to do the same.
I love popping a quick healthy snack after my daily walk! Keeps me energized and fresh.
My AHR Catamarina Sling Bag is perfect for walks and to carry a quick snack.
Let’s take a look at some of the superfoods and their benefits-
Known to be high in fiber, antioxidants, and tons of other nutrients, this breakfast regular helps lower cholesterol levels, aid in digestion, and even improve metabolism.
This ages-old health secret is a healer for everything from cancer to heart disease ! The packed with antioxidants, it has phytochemicals that slows irregular cell growth, which could potentially help prevent the growth of some cancers.
This superfood is packed with vitamins, minerals, disease-fighting compounds, and fiber ofcourse. Broccoli stands out for its exceptionally high levels of vitamin C and folate which battles with heart diseases and cancer.
Naturally low in sugar and high in vitamins A and C, it is the perfect fresh, low-calorie snack and so very delicious. Watermelon potentially lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, plus the lycopene battles cancer.
Rich in antioxidants, naturally anti-inflammatories, and packed with vitamins that promote vision and bone health. Just one serving of spinach has 12 percent of the recommended daily dose of calcium and enough vitamin K to help prevent bone loss.
The best protein source that it is and it’s loaded with nutrients. A single large egg is just about 70 calories and offers six grams of protein. Eggs are also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for normal body function and heart health.
For centuries and across civilizations a favourite flavouring agent as well as a medicine. Garlic is used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease to certain types of cancer also garlic can be used to treat yeast infections in women and prostate issues in men .
It’s also a great idea to keep your snacks loaded in a small box and munch on them while shopping, chatting with the girls, or just chilling out. I love carrying my AHR Mandurah on such excursions, lotsa space for things I buy and superfood snacks so I don’t eat unhealthy and fried things!
