Being happy and being healthy pretty much go hand in hand, so we’ve compiled a list of five of our favourite healthy foods to keep you going!
The hassle of dealing with sopping tea bags and carrying around a thermos full of hot water is definitely worth it for the health benefits that come with drinking tea. It is full of antioxidants and can help increase metabolism, decrease appetite and stabilize blood sugar. Plus, it counts toward the eight glasses of water per day that we all know we need.
Fresh or frozen, blueberries have reached superstar status with the health freaks. They help protect the digestive tract, can help improve memory and are easy to incorporate into other foods like yogurt and salad.
Raw, grilled, baked or broiled, salmon is an amazing addition to anyone’s diet. It strengthens heart muscles, can help lower cholesterol and can improve the look of your hair and skin. Best served on a bed of arugula and doused in lemon juice.
Almonds Almonds contain the most nutrients in comparison to all other tree nuts. They also help build strong bones and teeth, and are a good source of iron and fibre. Try a few raw almonds sprinkled with Stevia and cinnamon.
Don’t be scared off if you can’t make a perfect omelet. Eggs taste good, and good for you, even if they come out scrambled every time. They lower the risk of developing cataracts, are a perfect source of high-quality protein and are one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring vitamin D.
