5 nutrition rich and delicious foods
Your diet can make or break you on any day of the year. You should make sure you include the below foods that are packed full of nutrients. They offer all the essentials vitamins and nutrients you and your family need to be full of life from the moment you wake up, until you fall asleep at the end of the day.
1. Brown Rice
The healthy alternative to white rice, brown rice is a fantastic carbohydrate that is high in dietary fibre and energy. It is a great way to bulk up a meal or use in stews and curries. It’s rich in slow-release sugar and fibre – keeping you full for longer – and selenium, which fights against some types of cancer.
This may be a little bit of a shock for some, but sardines are super good for you! In fact, once-for-ounce, they contain the same amount of heart-healthy Omega 3’s as salmon. They are widely available, eco-friendly, extremely low in contaminants and packed full of fantastic protein. Plus, if you buy canned sardines with the bones you can increase your calcium intake too. We highly recommend them.
More for people who love to exercise, pineapple is a natural anti-inflammatory (because it contains bromelain) that accelerates muscle repair and fights back against the flu and cancer. It fights back against free radicals in the body, which cause cell damage, protecting you from heart disease, arthritis and other illnesses.
4. Peanut Butter
A true treat, peanut butter doesn’t just taste incredible, it’s also packed with protein and healthy fats! It offers all who eat it a healthy serving of potassium, which lowers your risk of getting high blood pressure, having a stroke and suffering from heart disease – as long as you eat peanut butter that’s low in sugar and salt.
5. Blue Band
Every knife of Blue Band includes vitamins A, B6, B12 and D, folic acid and niacin. All of which contribute to keeping your body healthy and strong by delivering exactly what you need every time you eat it. Even cooking with it includes these essential vitamins and nutrients into a meal, making each mouthful that much better for you.
