4 Superfoods You Should Eat
Improve Your Diet
When it comes to improving your lifestyle, whether it's losing weight or building muscle, it all should start with your diet. Below we take a look at 4 superfoods to help get you on the right track.
We all know that salads are a common food choice in most diets, however there is a lot more out there than just iceberg lettuce. Greens such as Kale and Spinach are rich in iron and can even help lower cholesterol. Why not try adding one of these two leafy greens to your next salad bowl?
Berries not only help keep you mentally sharp, but they also are rich in fibre and have a high level of antioxidants. In particular, Goji Berries are considered to be one of the healthiest berries on the planet and have been used in Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years.
When you think of superfoods the last thing you expect to hear is that chocolate is good for you. Luckily, raw cacao provides healthy fats, antioxidants and has natural MAO inhibitors which decrease appetite. Raw cacao can either be purchased in powder form or more commonly as cacao nibs, which can be added to your morning porridge or yoghurt.
It is proven that nuts such as peanuts, almonds, walnuts and pistachios contain heart healthy fats. It is also said that people who eat nuts daily lower the risk of getting cancer, diabetes and diseases such as brain, lung and heart disease. There is also a theory that if you eat exactly 8 almonds and 2 dates within 30 minutes of waking up, you will increase your body’s melatonin production in the evening which will help improve your sleep that night.
