3 Superfoods for a healthy eating habit
While eating healthy is a ‘no-brainer,’ there are specific types of foods bursting with lots of nutrition that the average eater is not getting in his or her diet. Three of these nutritious food types are listed below, they are commonly referred to as superfoods. I have listed them as they are easy to consume and you can even eat them while working, driving or walking:
Superfood 1 – Almonds
These are oval-shaped nuts, available from many supermarkets. These rather tasty nuts contain large amounts of calcium. With an equally high level of vitamin E, estimated for one serving providing 15 percent of the RDA for vitamin E. Almonds are also a valuable source of protein. I usually carry a bag of these in my car, munching away on these extremely tasty and healthy nuts while driving.
Superfood 2 – Pistachios
These green nuts are hiding lots of nutrition, protein and fiber. You can get them in two ways either packed in a hard shell and you have to take them out and eat or you can get them already taken out of shell and packed in bags. Pistachios are naturally cholesterol-free the best thing is a one-ounce serving of these nuts have as much potassium as one small banana. I’ll discuss the benefits of consuming some of these nutrition’s in my other posts, for now believe go and buy a pack and start eating these healthy little superfoods.
Superfood 3 – Sweet potatoes
Sweet potato is another of those superfoods that is loaded with the following nutrition’s – Beta carotene, Vitamin B-6, Vitamin C, Fiber and Potassium. Make sure to get the Orange type rather than the white Sweet potato, as the former is nutritious than the later.
Beta carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is said to help with slowing the aging process as well as fighting the risk of certain cancers. You can purchase Sweet Potatoes from your local supermarket or vegetable market stalls. I find you can eat them raw or roast them and take with you while out walking or have a bowl of roasted sweet potato slices to consume while working at your desk.
In cases where you have existing medical conditions or taking regular medication, contact your medical doctor before consuming any of these superfoods.
