A healthy diet is an important part of the weight loss process. But when you are first learning your way around a nutritious meal, it may seem hard to find the best foods to fit your needs as well as your tastes. But with some variety and experimentation you can find ways to fit these ultra-healthy foods into your daily diet.
These sweet little fruits are packed with antioxidants and very little calories. They have also been shown to help as an anti-inflammatory. Cherries are also surprisingly easy to fit into your diet. They go great when dried in a trail mix and are even a nice treat on salads.
These fruits have been shown to help with heart health, which is something that all of us could use a little more. Blueberries are great when mixed in with whole grain cereal or you could even make your own jam to put over whole grain breads.
Everyone has seen these strange looking fruit at the market, but a lot of people have never tasted them. Kiwis are soft, sweet and chock full of vitamin C. A single small kiwi without the skin can actually give you over 100% of the daily requirement of vitamin C that you need.
Grass Fed Meats
More specifically, grass fed beef. This beef is allowed to free roam, which means that it does not encounter the same amount of chemicals and antibiotics that traditional meats do. This type of beef is also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and can be used in place of traditional beef in any recipe that calls for beef.
These seeds have been shown to be absolute powerhouses of Omega-3 fatty acids which are great for brain health and mood boosting. These flax seeds are also a great source of fiber in your diet. They can be mixed into smoothies or cereals, and also used in baking.
A leafy green similar to cabbage, Kale has actually been shown to be something of a cancer fighter. It is also rich in calcium, iron and several different essential vitamins that your body needs. Kale can easily be added into your diet by using it as a replacement for lettuce or cabbage in recipes. Kale is also a great base for smoothies as it is packed with nutrients but does not have a strong taste so it can be mixed with fruits easily.
