TOP 5 SUPER FOODS
Forget basic broccoli, these foods are far more interesting and the great thing is you can buy them all from your local supermarket.
Salmon is one of the tastiest, richest sources of omega 3 fatty acids; these are essential fatty acids which are important for your overall health. Helping to ward off diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease. Unlike omega 6 which is found naturally in our bodies, omega 3 is only found in certain foods and salmon is a perfect example. Eat two to three times per week.
Blueberries are high in antioxidants and phytoflavinoids; they are also high in potassium and vitamin C, making them the top choice of doctors and nutritionists. Not only can they lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, they are also anti-inflammatory. Aim for 1 cup a day.
Walnuts are one of the best sources of plant protein. They are rich in B vitamins, magnesium, fiber and antioxidants. Compared to other nuts walnuts have higher amounts of omega 3 fatty acids. So get cracking today (couldn’t help myself), eat around 8 halves a day.
Pomegranates have become one of the most talked about super foods over the past couple of years. Both the fruit and the juice are full of antioxidants, helping to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol.
5. Dark Chocolate
Yes, you read it right chocolate, but always go for the dark variety with at least 70% cocoa content, which contains less sugar and less fat. It is packed full of antioxidants and can even help lower blood pressure. Aim for no more than 100 calories per day.
