Everyday Superfoods That'll Make Eating Healthy Simple
27 April 2017
Eating healthy is in fact a habit that can and should be easily adopted and we are here to show you just how easy it can be.
More often than not, people nurture unhealthy eating habits simply due to a preconceived notion, and a misguided one at that, that eating healthy takes a toll on their time and their wallets. When they think of ‘healthy foods’, their minds instantly go to expensive exotic ingredients they hear about on cooking channels, but the truth could not be further from that. Everything you need is already waiting for you at your local farmer's’ market or looking at you from supermarket aisles. Eating healthy is in fact a habit that can and should be easily adopted and we are here to show you just how easy it can be.
The greens of life
Green vegetables are absolutely on the top of the list when it comes to superfoods. From spinach to broccoli and kale, all greens are good for you. This is because green vegetables are brimming with fiber, along with vitamins, minerals, and plant-based substances that help protect you from heart disease, diabetes, and perhaps even cancer, and that is more than enough reason to incorporate them into your daily diet. You can make a kale and egg breakfast combination by following this quick and easy recipe and start the day off feeling strong, and an intake of only two hundred calories. If you practice yoga, a smoothie that incorporates cucumber or celery is the perfect pre-workout option. Smoothies are very popular because they are easy to digest, and you certainly do not want to overwhelm your body with heavy food before a workout. The advice given by nutritionists is to keep the smoothie simple and with only a few ingredients, and one of the best ones entails one celery or cucumber, one carb-loaded fruit of your choice, one tbsp. of chia seeds and a cup of water. Make sure you finish your smoothie at least twenty minutes before you hit the mat, and you will have an amazing and energized session.
The amazing avocado
There are not one, not two but at least ten health benefits of avocado, so it is no wonder why all the restaurants are going out of their way to incorporate them in so many items on their menus and why people just cannot seem to get enough of this superfruit. One avocado contains approximately 1/3 of the daily requirement of vitamin K and folate, vitamin B6 and C, not to mention the abundance of vitamin E, niacin, and riboflavin. It is also on the EWG's Clean 15 list, (which is a list of produce least likely to contain pesticide residues), so you can pick up a conventional avocado instead of an organic one because it is just as safe. When it comes to ways in which you can incorporate this amazing fruit into your daily diet, they range from simply eating it alone as you would any other fruit, to creating smoothies and great vegetarian and vegan dishes with the greatest of ease. One of the most popular (and might we say yummiest) vegetarian pizza recipes includes avocado, and here is how you make it: you will need a pocketless pita, or any kind of flat bread, lemon, ripe avocado, an egg and sea salt, pepper, chili flakes, cumin, cumin seed and extra virgin olive oil. Toast the pita until it is crisp, mash the avocado and spread on pita, drizzle with hint of lemon, olive oil and spices. Place the sunny-side up fried egg on top and serve. This meal is best served for breakfast because it provides you with the energy boost for a successful and active day, and if you love avocado as much as we do, you will love these other vegetarian recipes with avocado as the guest star.
Blueberries, goji berries and berries as a family are also proud members of the superfood super-family. According to WebMD, berries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, high in potassium and vitamin C, which makes them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. Aside from the numerous health benefits, these little fruits are a great substitute for sugary foods. You can eat them alone or make smoothies in combination with other fruits or seeds, and you can also make delicious and healthy meals and desserts.
Last, but still first
Before you can adopt all these healthy and delicious eating habits, your body and bowels need to be cleansed and prepared, so they are able to properly process and get the best out of the new and improved meals your system is about to experience. This is why a regular intake of good bacteria found in powerful probiotics such as Biocare is the absolute first step you must take on your journey to a healthier lifestyle. The toxins in your body need to be flushed out of your system in order to make room for your new and healthy choices.
