Eating healthy and on time comes with a host of benefits, and can help you stay healthy and disease-free. Many times, we get stuck in a predicament on what we should and shouldn't eat. If you are someone who is struggling to make the right food choices, then today's blog will help you get some much-needed clarity. We shall take a look at the top 5 superfoods that you must include in your diet.
Eggs are one of the healthiest foods that you can include in your diet. Not only are they packed with vitamins, but are rich in omega 3 fatty acids that are heart-healthy and are also a rich source of protein. If you can get your hands on organic eggs, then so much the better, as they tend to have higher Omega 3 fatty acid levels.
Another superfood that you should include in your day-to-day eating is yogurt, as it is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, calcium that's good for your bones, protein that your body needs, and also gut-friendly bacteria that can aid in digestion. Just maintain caution though and stay away from the flavoured, sugary yogurts and always pick the unflavored variant.
Sprouted beans and legumes:
Another superfood that vegetarians and vegans can both benefit from are sprouted beans and legumes. While the non-sprouted variants can be hard to digest for many, myself included, the sprouted variants are loaded with vitamins, minerals, complex carbohydrates, fiber, and a healthy serving of protein in every cup.
Regardless of whether you're on a paleo or a keto diet or if you're just following a normal diet, chicken breast can be consumed by one and all. Chicken breast is extremely lean and is all protein. A 100 gram serving of cooked chicken breast will give you 26 grams of protein and zero carbohydrates and a negligible amount of fat if any.
Green vegetables like broccoli, spinach, lettuce are packed with minerals and vitamins that help boost your body's immune system and can help you lose weight as well. Consuming these vegetables in the form of a salad along with your meals can help you feel satiated, without adding too many calories, and will help you control the amount of food you consume per meal.
