Eat Up For Better Health

Most people want to be healthy. But between hectic schedules, crunched mealtimes, and needing a little time to unwind, prioritizing general wellness can be difficult. People generally understand that eating well, getting enough exercise, and avoiding questionable behaviors like using tobacco products or excessive drinking, are important to preserve overall health. But not all people are aware that boosting daily intake of supercharged healthy foods can also aid in better wellbeing.

1. The incredible edible egg

Eggs are often overlooked in the general population as a basic food item. Consider that learning to boil eggs without a dreaded green ring around the yolks is considered a baseline benchmark for learning to cook. But eggs are packed full of nutrients that provide a wide host of benefits throughout the human body. Along with being packed full of protein, eggs contain lutein, antioxidants, vitamin D, and even zeaxanthin. Besides being a great source of fuel, eggs can boost eye health and even increase a person’s HDL, or good, cholesterol which can help reduce the risk of developing heart disease.

2. Enjoy dark leafy greens

For years parents have been cajoling children to eat green leafy vegetables to boost overall health. And according to research, dark green leafy vegetables are high in critical nutrients including folate, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, fiber, zinc, and iron. More importantly, some of the most well-known greens contain anti-inflammatory compounds that are known as carotenoids. The compound is considered vital in protecting people from developing some types of cancer. To boost leafy green intake, consider focusing on popular options like Swiss chard, kale, collard greens, spinach, or even turnip greens.

3. Yogurt to maintain healthy bacteria in the gut

Any individual who’s ever suffered from stomach flu knows that a side effect can be continued loose or runny stool for a few days after recovery. Even if a person isn’t battling a stomach bug, incorporating more yogurt into a daily diet can help to ensure that the gut has the right balance of good bacteria and maintain a more harmonious digestive tract. But not all yogurt is created equal. For the most benefit, look for options that contain live active cultures. The most common strains included in yogurt are Lactobacillus, L. acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, and S. thermophilus. Need more encouragement? Yogurt is a great source of calcium and can also help to protect against the onset of osteoporosis.

The link between diet and overall health

While frequently used in pop culture, the term superfood isn’t a scientific term. However, research does support that certain foods are more beneficial for targeting specific health concerns or supporting overall health and wellness. Although the three foods mentioned above are effective at boosting wellness, people shouldn’t assume that no other superfood options are needed. For best results, aim for a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains and lean protein-rich meats. When in doubt, consider speaking with a physician or registered dietician who can aid in creating a healthy diet plan.
