Add these 3 super foods to your diet

By  |  0 Comments

When we talk about eating a variety of foods, it looks as though it is a recommendation for a recipe for weight gain. Yet, it actually helps you lose pounds, even as it gives your body the nutrients it needs to burn fat. Some foods are so strongly connected with disease prevention – as well as being rich in nutrients – that it makes 100% sense to eat them every day.

So, add these three super foods to your daily diet and reap the benefits

1. Yogurt (low-fat, with live cultures)
Supplies calcium to prevent osteoporosis, boosts immune function, fights bacteria, has anticancer properties, may prevent yeast infections.

Make fruit and yogurt smoothies, top vanilla yogurt with fresh fruit and granola, use on baked potatoes instead of sour cream.

2. Green Tea
Mounting evidence supports green tea’s cancer-fighting properties, most likely due to its antioxidant content. Boosts metabolism and aids in weight loss or maintenance.

Drink your green tea with or without caffeine, hot or iced. Most studies showing the weight-loss benefits of green tea were designed with green tea being consumed with meals.

3. Bran Cereal (or other rich source of wheat bran)
Prevents constipation, is a potent anticancer agent, prevents polyps and may fight breast cancer by diminishing estrogen supplies.

Mix it in with your other cereals, make bran muffins, sprinkle on salads, mix into casseroles or even eat it out of hand with raisins and nuts.

Let's connect!

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I write to collect smiles and donate to charities. I share stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
