It seems like we are constantly reading more and more about which foods are good for us and which are bad. As we run to and from work every day, we just don’t always have the time to think about maintaining our nutrition levels. Luckily, there are some easy meal solutions for this that you can eat wherever you are or whatever you do. In this section, we will give you a few food tips that can boost both your vitamin levels and your metabolism in the same time.
- If you are gluten or lactose intolerant or have any sort of food allergies, always consult your doctor or special nutrition specialist before following any dietitian tips.
- Don’t overdose! It’s a popular misconception that you can’t overdose on healthy food, but it’s a myth because you can. Beware of the limits because even the best food in the world can harm you if you overconsume it.
- Fruits for your daily vitamin intake:
Citrus Fruits: Several research studies have shown that citrus fruits are some of the best to consume for your daily intake of Vitamin C, Vitamin B (B1, B2), and folic acid that all are so important for a healthy body and soul.
Pineapple: It’s a great fruit if you want to eat more of Vitamin C.
Berries: The latest researches show that berries such as blackcurrants and blueberries are the best when you want to consume antioxidants.
Cherries: are specifically good if you want to consume potassium which is rare in other fruits
Banana: This is a fruit which is especially rich in nutrients. It’s also rich in magnesium, potassium, and dietary fiber.
WARNING: if your stomach is sensitive to folic acid beware of citrus fruits.
- Dark green vegetables
If you want to eat food that is especially rich in minerals and iron, then go for the dark green vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, or Brussel sprouts.
We all know that beans are good for us, and so are lentils and peas. They are high in vitamins, such as vitamin B, zinc, and magnesium. Some also contain rare minerals such as folate and phosphorus. They are especially good antioxidants too. However, overeating legumes may result in bloating and flatulence.
Seafood is especially good for us and those living by the sea all know about this. Consuming fish such as tuna, shellfish, and salmon is especially good for our health. Fish is one of the very few natural sources of iodine; therefore, you should include seafood in your weekly diet at least once, if you can.
If you want to eat something that’s especially rich in minerals, then go for nuts. All nuts are full of vitamins and they are some of the most nutritious food all around. They are especially liked for their content of poly and unsaturated acids. They serve as a great addition to your daily amount of breakfast muesli or sweet corn flakes.
Other foods worth mentioning include: grapeseed, acai fruit, pomegranate, and fat-free meat. Remember to eat as much freshly-made food as possible.
