If you think about food, the ideal thought that comes to mind is pizza, fries, or that scrumptious burger. Let’s face it, you were not just thinking about carrots… Nor anything green, and that’s just cause you’re human. Be honest, no one in the history of mankind could possibly say, I feel like a carrot… or some broccoli. Not if they had the choice to eat anything they like that is.
Although these foods sound good, if you’re looking at your health, you might want to rethink them. See, this is where the carrot comes into play. It’s not like you can say that fried anything is going to up your eyesight.
It’s been established that in most cases, people eat healthy because they have to. Some find it rather unpleasant and tend to think sometimes, why bother if you don’t like it?
While it might be more difficult to make the switch to a healthy lifestyle, it’s a choice that you won’t regret along the line. When looking at what junk food does to your body, in comparison to what certain healthy foods can add to your body, you’ll soon find and experience the effects that eating healthy has on your body.
See, unlike junk food, each and every ingredient, when it comes to healthy eating, has some sort of magic or per say… special power, that allows you to feel your ultimate best and add to your health. Overall, it prevents diseases, keeps your weight in check, protects your heart and organs, makes your skin glow and boosts your energy.
The top 10 healthiest foods to incorporate into your diet
- Try a lemon – One lemon adds up to 100% of the daily recommended intake of Vitamin C. In addition, this also increases HDS cholesterol and assists in strengthening your bones. The substance of citrus flavonoid, found in these superfoods, will assist in inhibiting the growth of potential cancer cells and acts as an inflammatory.
- Broccoli – Eating only one medium broccoli contains 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin K and 200% of the necessary vitamin C. Both are considered bone-building nutrients which is essential for your bone health. Broccoli also protects your body against many different cancers.
- Dark Chocolate – Now this one might interest you more… Though it’s not as sweet, dark chocolate can be just as good. It’s health benefits most definitely are. It lowers your blood pressure and contains a lot of antioxidants that reduce LDL cholesterol and increases HDL cholesterol. The cocoa mass in dark chocolate also contains flavonoids and is the main source of nutrients in dark chocolate. The bigger percentage of cocoa mass, the healthier the chocolate.
- Potatoes – As a vegetable, potatoes have been thought to be the black sheep of the family. This, however, is false. The starchy potato (not the fry version) contains 66 micrograms of cell-building folate. It has the same amount of nutrients as a cup of spinach or broccoli.
The sweet potato version also contains a lot of benefits with eight times more cancer-fighting and immune boosting qualities than almost any other vegetable.
Whether you like them, or not, introducing these healthy foods into your diet will spur a major change in your health and protect you against radicals and illness.
At least it includes chocolate!
