Healthy Food #6 – Cinnamon
Surprisingly cinnamon is a great addition to our diet and many of us don’t get enough. You can add it to many recipes. It is a great way to help reduce your blood sugar and the risk of heart disease. You can just sprinkle it on oatmeal or even in your coffee depending on what you like most.
Healthy Food #7 – Oatmeal
Most of us think of oatmeal as only some mush in a bowl, perhaps with milk or cinnamon. But oatmeal can be added to other things like hamburger patties or breads too. Personally, the bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and brown sugar is great, while other people add cream and strawberries or other fresh fruits – even strawberry milk or other things.
Healthy Food #8 – Salmon and Tuna
Fish from cold waters contain nutrients that other fish dont, especially omega-3 fatty acids. Tuna is not expensive and has a great protein profile, and can be used in sandwiches, salads, casseroles, etc. Salmon is more expensive, but a single filet can be quickly cooked and used as a main course or added to rice dishes, etc.
Healthy Food #9 – Refried Beans
We normally associate refried beans with Mexican food, but they can be eaten anytime with rice, or scrambled eggs, or anything. Refried beans have no fat and great protein.
Healthy Food #10 – Plums
Plums, especially dried plums which are prunes are another healthy source of food. Prunes offer chlorogenic acid, and antioxidants that are able to reduce the risk of cancer. You will find that prunes are also a great help in regulating the body if you suffer from constipation. You can eat the prunes by themselves or sprinkle them over a prosciutto and back for a few minutes.
Healthy Food #11 – Asparagus
Asparagus is a fantastic food, high in fiber, the highest source of folic acid, B vitamins, potassium, glutathione to protect cells from fee radical, and rutin which strengthens capillary walls.
These are ten suggestions – but the world is filled with great foods that we can add to our diet.
