Food you should eat must be packed with nutrients like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytochemicals, enzymes are powerful in terms of creating optimal health and it is these types of foods that will take you to living a vibrant quality life full of energy and lack of symptoms, illness and disease – optimal health.
Majority of food that people consumes are densely filled with ingredients that cause poor health. These foods are basically processed foods which are not good for health.
Here are some of the food which you should have everyday.
Green Tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants. The catechins contained in the leaves of the tea plant. Catechins are a group of antioxidants that are powerful in their protective ability against illness and disease. Green tea is also beneficial as an adjunct to any weight loss program. The catechin EGCG contained in it ramps up metabolism as well.
Carrots are known for their high beta-carotene content. Beta-carotene is a natural antioxidant that transforms into vitamin A within our body. But it’s not absorbed all that well when you eat the carrot raw. It needs a bit of fat for better absorption. So sauteing them in very little olive oil or coconut oil can help your cause.
Spinach holds much goodness in its dark green leaves. When you cook this veggie, it wilts and shrinks considerably. This means that 1 cup of cooked spinach will technically hold more spinach (and nutrients) than 1 cup raw. But spinach also contains oxalic acid, which hinders the absorption of certain minerals like calcium and iron in your body and may even form kidney stones. There is an easy fix for this.
Eggs are not only low in calories, they are a powerhouse of protein, vital nutrients, and healthy fat. Research has shown that people who replaced carbohydrates with eggs for breakfast lost 65% more weight, and egg eaters benefit greatly with more added nutrients to their diet. The high protein content in eggs not only balances blood sugar, keeping you from being tempted by junk food, it helps to build muscle as well.
Almonds are high in fiber and protein and because they are so crunchy, just 1 oz will go a long way compared to other nuts. Almonds are high in the heart-healthy oleic acid that is responsible for many health benefits including a better memory.
