FOODS FOR A SUPER YOU

5 Nutrition Rich and Delicious Foods

‘You are what you eat’. This saying is not only metaphoric but also very literal. It would be best to include these food types in your meals, because they offer all the essential vitamins and nutrients you and your family need, to live life to the fullest from the moment you wake to the moment you lay.

    1. Brown Rice
      A healthier alternative to white rice, brown rice is a fantastic carbohydrate that is rich in dietary fibre and energy. It is a practical way to bulk up a meal or include with stews and curries. It is rich in slow-release sugar and fibre – keeping you full for longer – and selenium, which fights against some types of cancer.

 

    1. Pineapple
      More for people who love to keep fit! Pineapple is an organic or natural anti-inflammatory (because it contains bromelain) that expedites muscle repair and combats the flu and cancer. It fights back against free radicals in the body, which cause cell damage, protecting you from heart disease, arthritis and other illnesses.

 

    1. Sardines
      Sardines? Yes, surprisingly they are super healthy!! In fact, ounce-for-ounce, they contain the same quantity of heart-healthy Omega 3’s as salmon. They are widely available and easily accessible, eco-friendly, very low in contaminants and consist of fantastic protein. Moreover, if you consume sardine with the bones you increase your calcium intake!

 

    1. Blue Band
      Every knife of Blue Band includes vitamins A, B6, B12 and D, folic acid and niacin. They all work together to keep your body healthy and strong by delivering exactly what you need every time you eat it. Adding them to your dishes enhances the essential vitamins and nutrients in the meal, making each bite that much better.

 

    1. Peanut Butter
      Interesting fact about peanut butter, it doesn’t only have an awesome taste but it is also rich in potassium which lowers the risk of getting hypertension, high blood pressure, heart diseases and strokes. Make sure you are eating a peanut butter which is low in sugar and salt.
