Want to eat well with superfoods? You don’t have to trek to a health food store to find these ingredients!
1. Low-fat yogurt
Check your dairy case for low-fat yogurts that are low in sugar, high in protein, and contain live active cultures. Greek varieties are particularly rich and creamy, which can make them more satisfying. Use yogurt in everything from quick breakfasts to sauces.
Full of healthy fats and vitamin E, nuts are a perfect quick snack that will leave you feeling full. Walnuts are extremely rich in Omega-3s, and Brazil nuts have high levels of selenium, which is known to play a role in cancer prevention.
Check out the tea aisle for phytochemicals, found in all types of tea but green tea in particular. These strong antioxidants can help the body fight off free radicals, leading to better longevity and overall health. Just don’t overload your tea with cream and sugar.
Protein sources are often overlooked when it comes to antioxidant content, but beans are absolutely packed with them. Most varieties of beans are also incredibly rich in vitamin C, calcium, zinc, and selenium, and they also contain the fiber and protein you need to feel satisfied after a meal.
