National Nutrition Month - Six super-foods to include in your diet


These days, many people stick to fasting or fad diet plans in order to 'stay healthy' or to lose weight.

But the truth is- you need a filling and balanced diet to stay healthy.

So, this National Nutrition Month, which is observed every September and is aimed at promoting the importance of healthy eating, make sure to include these six super-foods in your diet.



#1 Eggs: A super-food for your physical and mental health

Eggs are a powerhouse of nutrients essential for your physical and mental health.

They are packed with protein, important vitamins like A,E,D, and B16, sodium, iron, magnesium, and potassium, and other nutrients.

Among other health benefits, eggs are great for your heart health, can help manage obesity, strengthen your bones, and improve overall brain function.

A weekly intake of 3-4 eggs is recommended.



#2 Yogurt: Refreshing, versatile, and healthy

Refreshing and versatile, yogurt is the go-to super-food for most of your health needs, as it supplies you with plenty of protein, keeps you full, and saves you from unwanted calories.

Furthermore, the presence of live bacteria makes it a boon for digestive health.

Additionally, loaded with essential vitamins and minerals, it can help boost immunity, improve bone health, and boost up mood.



#3 Dark leafy greens: Add them to your smoothies and sandwiches

Loaded with powerful antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, leafy greens, such as spinach, kale and collard greens have many amazing health benefits to offer.

These include improved brain function, reduced belly bloat, better skin glow, stress relief, stronger bones, healthy aging, and greater immunity.

You can include more leafy greens in your diet by adding them to your smoothies, sandwiches, and other dishes.



#4 Nuts: Munch on some regularly to reduce unhealthy snacking

Nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews, etc.) are handy, quick, and readily available.

Packed with healthy (monounsaturated) fats, fiber, and protein, nuts can help reduce risk of high blood pressure, cholesterol, and heart disease.

Further, loaded with Omega-6 and Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, they are great for improving your brain function.

So, munch on some on a daily basis to reduce chances of unhealthy snacking.



#5,6 Ginger and Turmeric: Reap on goodness of these powerful ingredients

Ginger: Packed with essential antioxidants, ginger has great anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improve appetite, and enhances digestion by fighting intestinal pain, gas, and bloating.

Turmeric: With powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities, turmeric can effectively treat skin problems, and is good for detox. It is an amazing solution for diabetics, as it reduces blood-sugar levels. No wonder, turmeric milk has become a world-renowned super-food lately.
