With a new year just around the corner, we usually take this time time to reflect on the year just past. And, boy, is there quite a lot to reflect about this year!
If, like me, you have allowed your inner foodie free rein this year with no exercise to counterbalance the intake of food, then you might be thinking of living a healthier lifestyle from the new year onwards.
Food will undoubtedly comprise a large part of your new lifestyle, and not just what you restrict yourself from gorging on, but, more importantly, what you choose to nourish yourself. It is important to keep in mind that while you shy away from food that do not significantly benefit your well-being, you should ensure that you consume more of those that do such as superfood.
If you haven’t been consciously incorporating superfood in your diet, now is the best time to do so. Here are three reasons why:
1) Superfood are highly nutritious.
Being whole or unprocessed ingredients, superfood are known for having high nutrient density which help in keeping you healthy and in warding off diseases.
Chia seeds, for example, are rich in fiber and energy, have anti-oxidant properties and help in maintaining heart health.
Himalayan salt, on the other hand, is also rich in energy, helps promote brain health and manage the effects of aging.
If you’re looking for food with lots of protein, fiber and omega 3 nutrients, golden flax seeds are among your best bets.
Meanwhile, if you want something to help with your digestion and heart health, you might want to check out sunflower seeds, which are also great sources for Vitamin E and magnesium.
Cacao nibs, on the other hand, can help in improving your mood, have antioxidant properties and are good sources of fiber, iron and magnesium.
2) Superfood can easily be integrated in your favorite dishes.
I used to think that healthy food is bland or tasteless but -surprise! surprise! – superfood happen to be among those things that are not just good for you but tastes good, too!
Himalayan salt can help in flavoring your grilled steaks and other savory dishes.
Chia seeds, golden flax seeds and sunflower seeds, on the other hand, can be blended into your favorite juices, smoothies and mocktails.
Lastly, cacao nibs can be enjoyed on their own – I munch on them as I watch my favorite stand up comedy shows on Netflix – or be added to dessert recipes.
3) Superfood are now more readily available.
