Not all food is created equal, and some ingredients are just a lot more nutritious than others. Packed with nutrients, these are now known in the market as superfoods, and they are said to deliver a whole lot of goodness that your body needs. Though there is no such thing as an actual “superfood”. It is a made-up term used for marketing purposes. However, there are some foods that are nutrient-rich which supposedly affects health positively. A new year is upon us and like what they say, “new year new me”. Let 2022 be the year of eating well! Here are some of the healthiest superfoods out there that anybody eating healthy will want in their diet ASAP!

8 superfoods to help you live healthier

 

1. Dark Green Leafy Vegetables

Dark green leafy vegetables (DGLVs) include healthy greens such as kale, spinach, mustards, cabbages, and even broccoli. These veggies are a good source of iron, vitamins A, C, and K, and fiber. They have high levels of carotenoids which help protect against certain types of cancer, and other nutrients that reduce the chance of having chronic illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes. Although some of these vegetables have a bitter taste that some might not enjoy, you can get creative and incorporate them into all kinds of yummy dishes. As from Chef Rob in his Beauty of the World cooking show, he created a blueberry strawberry jam to add a certain touch to his dark green leafy vegetable salad.

 

2. Blueberries

Blueberries, along with other yummy berries (such as strawberries, cranberries, and raspberries), are full of healthy antioxidants that help fight long-term illnesses. Berries are extremely rich in vitamins, fiber, and healthy phytochemicals (such as flavonoids) that help the body prevent inflammation, heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses. Enjoy them as sweet and tart snacks, or have them for breakfast or dessert in your favorite pancakes and pastries. Delicious!

 

3. Seeds and Nuts

Although nuts and seeds are a little high on calories, they are full of minerals and healthy fats, aside from having good amounts of fiber and protein. When included in a balanced diet, nuts and seeds are probably the healthiest and most nutrient-filled on-the-go snack option. Almonds, cashews, pecans, walnuts, and macadamia nuts, as well as chia seeds, sunflower seeds, and flaxseed, are among the many kinds of nuts and seeds you can incorporate into your diet.

 

4. Yogurt

Yogurt is a tart, fermented food that offers many benefits for your body, as it contains probiotic strains that can help greatly with digestion and cholesterol levels, as well as lowering blood pressure and preventing inflammation. When buying yogurt, it’s good to be mindful of the type of products you choose, especially if you are watching your sugar intake.

5. Salmon

Salmon is a delicious type of fish packed with protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory effects. Having salmon in your diet can help with maintaining a healthy weight, and lowering the risk of heart disease and stroke. With the many ways to enjoy this fish, having this in your diet is an absolute must!

 

6. Turmeric

Turmeric is a spice that is related to ginger that originated from India. It has multiple uses and is also used in curries. Curcumin is the active compound found in turmeric. Curcumin helps in treating and preventing chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. It also has anti-inflammatory effects. However, curcumin is not absorbed by the body but it could be aided by pairing it with black pepper, other spices, and fats.

 

7. Avocado

It turns out, Avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. With the way it’s treated, it feels like a vegetable due to its highly nutritious features. It’s high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fat. Fat is not bad. Unhealthy fat is bad. Avocadoes are high in healthy fats which aid in keeping blood sugars stable. It is rich in vitamins and nutrients such as vitamins C, E, K, and B6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. Avocado is perfect for any occasion, may it be breakfast, lunch, or even dinner. It’s perfect for your well-being too!

 

8. Green Tea

Green tea originated from China and it comes with a wide array of health benefits. Green tea improves blood flow and helps in lowering cholesterol. It is rich in antioxidants and polyphenolic compounds, one of which is epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG. EGCG is one of the main ingredients on why green tea is good for you. And the best part about green tea is, it’s readily available in stores or online. You could also find green tea easily near Crown Asia’s preselling house and lot with the stores nearby.
