The buzz word of the millennium would have to be “Superfood”. Now you don’t need to go out and spend loads of money on ancient and exotic superfoods, yes while there is plenty of hype on these trendy superfoods – there are many superfoods found at your everyday grocery store that are equally good for you – and lighter on the wallet.
Here are four superfoods you should consider adding to your diet today which promise to make you happy, healthy and more energised:
Berries: Rich in potassium, Vitamin C and anti-oxidants, berries such as blueberries, mulberries, and raspberries, are great for fighting heart disease, cancer and diabetes. The more darker the berry then generally the more nutrient dense it is.
Broccoli: Rich in vitamins A, B and C, a daily serve of broccoli will give your immunity a big boost – enabling it to fight off disease much more effectively. Broccoli doesn’t have to be bland – try serving it with a cheese sauce or steamed with some olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper.
Nuts: Nuts are a rich source of natural fats, they are great for repair and renewing tissues and cells. A handful of nuts a day will also feed your body with protein and help reduce bad cholesterol.
Salmon: Whether you choose to buy your salmon fresh, frozen or smoked, it not only tastes great but is also rich in Omega-3 fats. Omega-3 helps control/reduce cholesterol and promotes a healthy heart.
