Foods That You Should be Eating More Of

We all try to do our best with eating healthy every day. Locating the right foods, reading the right articles, having the time and energy to prepare the meals and even being able to afford the ingredients, all play major parts in deciding what we should be eating.

Many of us get suggestions from doctors and health professionals to eat certain foods that will put us in optimal shape, but implementing those things into our diets can be a task. We often use food for different reasons besides getting our nutrients. Many of us use it to celebrate special occasions, to make us feel better when we have a bad day, or just to socialize and make the most of our time with our family and friends. Learning what we should be eating and trying to add those choices into our daily meals can make a big difference in our wellbeing. For a complete list of foods, you can visit this website.


Kale - Kale is a superfood that is good for fighting cancer. It is good for eye and skin health and has the same amount of vitamin C as an orange. The easiest way to use kale is to put it in a salad with a bunch of other mixed greens. Some people like to saute it in olive oil or coconut oil along with almonds or other super foods. The quickest way to consume kale is to put it into a healthy smoothie with other fruits and vegetables to fill your body with antioxidants.


Sardines - These are full of heart healthy omega three vitamins that help elevate mood and they also have a lot of vitamin D. The best thing about sardines is that they are very convenient and can be bought in several varieties in a can or package. You can have them with crackers at lunch, put them into a salad, slice them and saute with vegetables or just eat them out of the can while camping or on a trip. You will be satisfied and feel a lot better after eating this fish. You might even want to try to put it on a pizza.


Oatmeal - Oatmeal has four grams of soluble fiber per cup. This is a slow release carbohydrate that releases the nutrients over time. Studies have shown that eating a slow release carbohydrate three hours before your workout can help you burn more fat. Oatmeal can be made at home, it can be bought at some fast food restaurants, such as McDonalds, and it can be enjoyed with your favorite splurge at Starbucks. Some gas stations that serve hot foods also have the option of oatmeal on their daily menu.


Kefir - This is literally drinkable yogurt. It contains fermented milk and probiotics that will strengthen your immune system and give you more energy. This can be enjoyed in a plain version that has less sugar, or you can choose to have a little more flavor by choosing a peach or strawberry flavor with just a little sugar. You can also choose the option with less sugar and add your own fruit, like blueberries, to really give you a nutritious drink that will make you feel good throughout the day.
