Make sure to include these on your daily diet!
Living healthy is our goal and making sure our diet complete with all the nutrients we need should be on our top priority. Over all health always starts with what we eat as no matter how many hours you spent in the gym for you to lose that excess fat if you are still on unhealthy and poor diet, it will be just be a waste of time.
On the other hand, we sometimes thought that if we eat our greens and go vegan will make sure we got all the food nutrients and vitamins we need, but these are all lies. We found this list of healthy food you should always include in your diet and you will notice how it will change your body in a good way.
- Kale. The beautiful dark green leaves of a kale plant provide more nutritional value, with fewer calories than any veggie out there. It’s packed with vitamins A, C and K, iron, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. New kids on the kale block should try this recipe for Southern Kale or this out-of-the-box recipe for Kale with Apples & Mustard. Sautéed kale will bring out its bold flavor.
- Seaweed. The sea’s most precious vegetable jewels have a number of overlooked health properties. Studies have shown that seaweed may combat weight gain and fight off cancer. Edible seaweeds are loaded with calcium and potassium. High potassium intake is a great way to keep sodium levels low: Try grinding dried seaweed into a powder and sprinkle it on salads and soups as a salt substitute.
- Lentils. Lentil beans are popular around the world, but haven’t really become a staple of American cuisine. Our loss: after soybeans and hemp, lentils have the highest protein levels of any plant-based food. They’re also chalk full of amino acids, iron and lysine and quick and easy to prepare, seamlessly absorbing wonderful flavors from other foods and seasonings. This recipe for Lemony Lentil Salad with Salmon will make you a believer.
- Dried plums. Prunes were your grandmother’s best friend. That’s why marketers have changed the name of these highly nutritious fruits to “dried plums.” These wrinkled power snacks fight off DNA-damaging free radicals, aid digestion and lower cholesterol. High in potassium, they’re also great for cardiovascular health. Plus, they actually do taste pretty good. Here’s a saucy recipe for Drunken Prunes.
