Nowadays, there’s always a new superfood on the spotlight. They come around like trends, expensive fruits that promise to boost your metabolism, help you lose weight and stay young forever. Today, I want to give you a list of foods that you’ve probably known all your life and that will actually provide you with amazing health benefits.
We start off with the infamous oatmeal, deeply hated by kids everywhere, the unpopular cereal has a lot to offer and is not nearly appreciated enough. Oatmeal has been known to be a great food to use while targeting weight loss, helps with cardiovascular health and is a healthy source of energy, fats, vitamins and minerals. Go give your oatmeal box a hug, mister, it deserves it.
Let’s move on to berries. You might have heard before that berries are a great source of antioxidants. However that’s not all these wonderful fruits have to offer, research has shown that eating berries regularly helps keeping mental activity at optimum levels, helps with blood pressure, manage diabetes and weight loss.
Pineapple has high levels of Vitamin C which is great to boost your metabolism and is a healthy source of minerals, manganese, fibers and antioxidants. However these benefits come from eating the raw fruit not the canned and processed pineapple sold in stores. The only cut back is that you should control the amount of pineapple you eat as exceeding can result in diarrhea, vomits, rash, tenderness in your mouth, and heartburn. Other than that, Pineapple will help your bones, your digestion and your immune system overall. It is also a great sweetener for green juices.
Olive oil is the next superstar in this post. Olive oil is a healthy source of Omega-3 fatty acids and has been known to help reduce obesity, bad cholesterol, high blood pressure, and is also a great source of antioxidants. The only catch is that you shouldn’t burn it or use it for cooking as the compound that forms from heating olive oil is not healthy at all.
Add these foods and remove enriched carbs, sugary meals, drinks and snacks and foods with saturated fats or containing trans-fat. Not only will you see the benefits but you will also unlock the door to a healthy and long-lasting life.
These superfoods do make a big difference
