Are you looking to improve your health? One of the best ways to start is by changing your diet. Many of us are familiar with the phrase, “you are what you eat.” Therefore, it is important to cut back on, or even cut out, processed foods, carbs, excess sugar and fast food from our diets. We should replace these items with more fresh vegetables and fruit, healthy grains and superfoods.
What are superfoods?
Superfoods are nutrient rich foods able to improve health and one’s overall well-being. Superfoods have disease fighting properties and are known to strengthen the immune system and reduce certain types of chronic diseases and cancer. Basically, superfoods contribute to a person being healthier.
Some of the healthiest foods you are already eat are superfoods. For example, leafy greens and juicy fruits, such as blueberries and cranberries, are all antioxidant rich superfoods. Healthy grains such as quinoa are also considered a superfood.
Why are superfoods important?
Superfoods are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. Full of everything that is good for you, superfoods are dense in vitamins, protein, fiber and many of the other nutrients that our bodies need to help fight off disease and feel energized.
How can I add superfoods to my diet?
If you are eager to become a bit more healthy and are interested in adding superfoods to your diet, rest assured that it is quite a simple thing to do. Here are some superfoods that you can easily add into your daily meals:
- Walnuts – rich in Omega-3’s, walnuts are great for brain function and are great in salad, yogurt or just as a plain snack
- Kale – full of iron and good for blood health, kale is a great addition to a salad or perfect in a healthy green smoothie
- Berries – well known for their antioxidant properties, berries are nature’s candy and rich in vitamins and fiber; berries are perfect as a snack or added to salads, oatmeal or yogurt
Make an effort to eat or cook with superfoods when you can. You are bound to notice a difference once you start incorporating these delicious, healthy foods into your diet.
