3 Foods To Eat Everyday For Better Overall Health


Whether you’re trying to lose weight, or you’ve simply decided to start taking better care of yourself, a healthy and balanced diet is essential. Picking and choosing foods that are actually good for you and will probably aid your weight loss can be tricky. How do you know what to eat and what not to, when you’re also trying to ensure that you get enough vitamins, fibre, protein and other nutrients that will help keep your system running smoothly? We’re here to help. If you’re trying to shed some extra kilos, there are some foods that can help while also providing you with a balance of nutrients as needed by your body.

Here are a few foods to eat at least once a day, whether you want glowing skin or just a healthy digestive system.

1. Leafy Greens

Leafy greens such as spinach, kale, fresh lettuce and others, are a great way to increase the portion size of your meal, without actually increasing the calories that you consume. These greens are full of antioxidants, as well as vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy immune system and good hair and skin. They are also high in fibre and will keep you feeling full for longer.

2. Eggs

Eggs are high in protein as well as in healthy fats. Eating eggs consistently leads to elevated levels of HDL or “good” cholesterol, which is linked to a lower risk of many diseases. A study also showed that eating eggs for breakfast can increase weight loss on a calorie restricted diet.

3. Nuts

Nuts are high in healthy fats and antioxidants, including omega-3 fatty acids, which support brain function and protect against heart disease. Nuts such as almonds, cashews, pistachios, hazelnuts, etc are a good source of many nutrients when consumed in their natural form. Nuts are considered a great snacking option on low-carb diets.
