You Can Call Them Your Go-To's for Safety!
We love the fitness and health philosophy, "sweat and eat clean". If you keep both simple, you're good to go.
Here are 7 foods that are healthy, yet adaptable to most people's preferences. Try adding one or two this week!
1. A Green Smoothie
Healthy, quick, delicious, nutrient-dense, and easily digestible. Check this link out for our personal favorite recipes!
Loaded with high-quality proteins, vitamins, minerals, good fasts and various trace nutrients. A large egg contrains 77 calories, 5 grams of fat, 6 grams of protein, and includes all 9 essential amino acids! Rich in iron, phosphorous, selenium, and vitamins A,B12,B2,B5, and others.
3. Seasonal Fruits & Veggies
Besides the obvious reasons why fruits and vegetables are healthy, eating more seasonal produce/crops can have up to three times more nutrients when grown in season. They don't have to endure as much travel, so they don't lose those vital nutrients!
4. Goat's Milk
Typically fine for all lactose-intolerant people out there & contains more than 40 beneficial nutrients, fatty acids, and amino acids all in one cup. Give it a try!
Hydrating to the body unlike its counterpart, Coffee, the antioxidants in tea might help protect against free radicals and cancers. It's also shown to help improve digestion before sleep, increase bone density and strength, and even fuel muscular endurance!
Besides their higher caloric intake, almonds are deemed one of the healthiest foods in the world due to their nutrient profile. In fact, almonds are among the world's best sources of Vitamin E which protects against Alzheimer's and heart disease. Grab 1 oz. a day and you're already there!
7. Wild-Caught Salmon
There aren't many foods that are as great for you like the benefits wild salmon brings to your diet. Wild salmon is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids which are necessary for optimum maternal and infant health. Omega-3's improve blood vessel functions, lipid patterns, reduce risk of stroke, depression, and Alzheimer's. Can't find any or stand the taste? The Omega's are always available in pill form, but eating the food is always the preferred way!
