Superfoods for your diet!
Are you aware of these superfoods?
While dieticians and experts may say that the term ‘Superfood’ is just a marketing gimmick, the fact of the matter is that there are food items that are extremely healthy for your body. And when you add them to your exercise routine and daily diet, they can prove beneficial on many levels. Here are 4 superfoods that you can incorporate in your lifestyle:
Cinnamon: You may find this spice in most Indian homes but very few people know how high it is in antioxidants. It also helps in lowering blood sugar level and cholesterol. Apart from adding it to some of your meal recipes, you can even sprinkle it over your smoothie, oatmeal, and yogurt.
Avocado: This superfood can be your heart’s best friend as it is rich in monounsaturated fats, folic acid, vitamin K, and vitamin C. It is jam-packed with potassium and can be your partner if you are trying to lose weight. You can add this creamy fruit to your salad, spread it over your toast, or eat it with a sprinkle of salt.
Kale: This dark green leafy vegetable has almost become synonymous with the term superfood. It is rich in calcium, manganese, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K. Very low on calories; you can incorporate Kale in your diet by adding it to your salads and shakes. If you want a savoury snack, you can opt for kale chips.
Flaxseeds: These seeds are full of omega-3 fatty acids, thiamine, phosphorus, magnesium, and manganese. Not just that, they have a good amount of fibre and protein in them. Whether it is oatmeal, hummus or granola, you can incorporate flaxseeds in it. You can also consume flaxseed oil in capsule or liquid form.
When it comes to maintaining your overall health, there are no quick fixes or shortcuts. However, these superfoods can give you that much-needed boost in enhancing your overall wellbeing.
