5 Superfoods You Should Be Eating Right Now

If you strive to eat healthy and stay fit then you already know what a daunting task this

can be. Let's face it - it's not easy attempting to live a normal life while taking care of

your body. Many of us turn to multi-vitamins as our "go-to" source for optimal nutrition,

simply because the prep time and commitment that is involved in eating well is not

always readily available.

According to the easo.org (The European Association For The Study Of Obesity) 65%

of the world's population live in countries that are affected by obesity and since 1980 the

rate of obesity as has doubled. When you pair that up with all of the junk and fast food

sources that are within an earshot away it can be extremely tempting to put just anything

into your body.

If you want to start eating right, but are short on time; consuming superfoods may be

your answer. But before we begin - what exactly defines a superfood?

There is no guideline or specific classification except for the the fact that some foods

seem to be higher in nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and benefits that protect

our bodies from cell damage.

If you imagine your body as a sort of "engine" then you which would you rather fuel it

with? low grade or high grade octane? That's what some of these special dietary

enhancers do.

Here are 5 superfoods that you should consider putting your focus into.


Powerful superfoods for eating healthy

1. Salmon

The taste of fish does not appeal to everyone, but out of all of the possibilities for

producing a great-tasting dish that serves up a great dose of health - salmon is one of

them. Just one half of a Salmon filet provides a good source of calories that contain a

LOT of B vitamins, potassium and omega-3 fatty acids.

And if you're looking for a reasonable source of selenium, pantothenic acid and protein

then look no further. Also note that the link between consuming omega 3 fatty acid-rich

fish and cardiovascular health is a quite a positive one. Salmon is also good for joint

health too; which is why many people take fish oil capsules as a quick

substitute.

2. Seaweed

The name doesn't sound appetizing, but seaweed-related edibles are extremely powerful

for the body. They typically contain high amounts of iron, zinc, calcium, iodine and

magnesium and are an excellent source of vitamin C and a great source of protein. Kelp

is a really good one to start with, but if you're a fan of Sushi then the Nori that this

Japanese staple is wrapped in will also do.

It is also commonly found as an ingredient in many super food powders that you can

make smoothies from.

3. Kale

Tired of the predictable salad makings? Try kale as a substitute for lettuce. Don't like the

texture of Kale - don't forget to "massage" the leafs first before putting them into your

salad. Yes that is really a thing and will make the tender and pleasant to eat.

According to http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=38, just 1

cup of cooked kale can yield as much as 1180% of your needed daily value of vitamin

K. It's a fantastic source of fiber, vitamin C & A. Pair that up with the fact that kale also

is loaded with copper, phosphorus, potassium and omega-3 fats and you've got yourself

a real winner on your hands.

4. Blueberries

There is nothing that beats the freshness of a handful of blueberries and they are highly

ranked for their antioxidant properties; which can help fight free radicals that target cell

structures. This little, blue fruit is fully loaded with vitamin K, C, manganese and is

thought to help with mental stability, the fight against aging and to be beneficial to heart

health.

Not to mention that there are many, many delicious ways to combine them into

something quite extraordinary.

5. Kefir

Kefir is considered to be one of the best sources of probiotics. In essence it is a type of

fermented milk that is healthy to drink and has a slightly "sour" taste much like yogurt.

It is also very high in certain minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc just to

name a few.

Some of the powerful probiotics that have been identified in Kefir are lactobacillus

acidophilus, lactobacillus rhamnosus, lactobacillus caucasus and lactobacillus

bulgaricus. If leaky guy syndrome or digestive issues is a concern of yours - start with

this ancient drink that you can purchase at most grocery stores.
