Intuitively, we all know that eating healthy is good for us.
But with so much noise and contradicting advice out there, it’s easy to get confused and wind up overwhelmed.
Today, we’ll take a look at three incredibly healthy foods you should add to your diet.
Salmon and other fatty fish are incredibly good for us. They are loaded with high-quality protein, various minerals, and healthy fats.
Salmon is also filled with omega 3 fatty acids which have been shown to deliver numerous incredible benefits ranging from improved insulin sensitivity and antidepressant qualities to improved brain health and reduced risk of heart disease.
2. Beans and Legumes
All varieties of beans and legumes such as lentils and chickpeas deliver high-quality protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals.
The carbohydrates we find in these foods are starchy, meaning they digest more slowly and lead to a gradual release of insulin from the pancreas.
All in all, these benefits make beans and legumes incredibly healthy for us on multiple fronts.
Contrary to popular belief, nuts are not inherently fattening. This misunderstanding probably stems from the fact that nuts are high in fat. But despite their high-calorie content, nuts are one of the healthiest foods out there.
They are loaded with healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and, of course, lots of high-quality protein.
Research seems to suggest that regular nut consumption can improve metabolic health and even lead to weight loss. In fact, some studies also finds a correlation between daily nut consumption, good health, and leanness.
