As you already know, there are so many varieties of food in our world that it’s easy to confuse what is the most beneficial to our bodies. Luckily, I’ve compiled a list of the best food and drinks that will benefit your health.
Starting off with something that counts as a food and a drink, smoothies. They are an excellent way of cramming in loads of fruit and vegetables into your diet. You simply pick the combination you desire and blend them together to drink. To make your smoothie a bit more substantial, adding milk or yogurt into it will make it creamier and fill your stomach enough to last until your next meal.
Fish is a brilliant way of getting your body the essential omega-3 fats that your body needs. If you’re not keen on the taste of fish, you could always try taking omega-3 supplements, but eating the fish is what is going to benefit you the most.
Green teas are amazing at detoxing the body and bringing other health benefits too. Skinny tea promotes weight loss, reduces bloating, and even gives you a clearer and healthier mind. Giving your body a well-deserved detox every now and then will do your skin and general health the world of favors.
Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of the vitamins and minerals that your skin needs to stay clear and healthy. There are so many different things that you can create with sweet potatoes like oven fries, roast potatoes, mashed potato, and you could even replace spaghetti with it by slicing it thin enough to look like spaghetti. One bonus too, is those sweet potatoes are better for you in general than regular red or white potatoes that you can get from the grocery store. Incorporating these into your diet will improve your health. Plus, they’re really tasty!
Giving up soda will change so many aspects of your life. At first, you will crave the caffeine that you’re missing out on, but if you can get through that, your skin will dramatically improve, you will lose weight, your teeth will recover and you will have more energy. Consider quitting soda for your health!
Whenever possible, try to buy produce that is organic, as they will be better for you than cage-fed animals and insecticide grown vegetables. The closer to nature that you can create your food from, the more benefits you will reap from it. For example, eating an egg from a free range chicken will provide you with much more protein because they are generally larger, and the chicken has led a healthy life. The same goes with tomatoes, if they are home grown and not sprayed with pesticides, they tend to be larger, firmer and tastier because it’s had the chance to grow naturally.
One key thing to remember, is to use your common sense! We should all know by now what isn’t good for our bodies. Treat your body well, and you will live a long, healthy and happy life!
