5 Nutritious Foods You Should Be Eating
The 2020 Pandemic made many people sit up and take notice of their health and the quality of food intake. Not so much a diet as dieting has always been a conversation even before the pandemic, but many did take a look at their health and took steps to eat a more healthy diet because of all the sickness surrounding the pandemic. One may find that on many of the top ten lists, the five listed here will more than likely appear because these have been found to be the most nutritious foods that everyone should be eating as Father George Rutler would agree. Let’s take a look at the top 5 nutritious food one should be eating
First is salmon. Salmon is one of the top five because it is an oily fish that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids; not to mention, it is a source of healthy protein. The benefit to both the one’s brain and heart is immeasurable. Now, with all of this from salmon, one may think that this is more than enough. However, salmon also gives another great benefit and that is with very important vitamins like D which the bone-builder along with vitamin B12 and many more vitamins and minerals. Wild caught salmon is the best but any salmon is good and will give such great health contributions to one’s brain, heart and bone; not to mention, energy levels and nervous system functions. Salmon should be on every list of nutritious foods that everyone should be eating. Some alternatives to salmon are tuna, various cold water fish and shellfish, or for non seafood eaters, eggs, chia seeds, kidney beans and flax seeds.
Second on the list of the 5 are Brussels sprouts. This little many cabbages as some like to say or little green balls are full of a variety of vitamins. Vitamin, A, C, K and folate along with potassium are some of the benefits of eating this nutritious vegetable. These little “mine green balls of cabbage” have bioactive compounds like antioxidants that protect one from having cell damage. Vitamins C helps to boost iron absorption which helps to produce great energy and it even has omega-3s. Some alternatives, as one should guess to be the first on the list is cabbage along with broccoli, kale, bok choy and cauliflower are all good substitutes.
Third on the list is blueberries. This little deep dark colored berry is incredibly high in antioxidants with a lot of vitamin C, K and A along with fiber, flavonoids and manganese. Blueberries are a powerhouse of nutritious benefits. They include improving immunity, heart health, brain and more. Alternatives are leafy green veggies, grapes, cranberries.
Fourth are nuts as they have healthy oils, vitamin E and protein. Alternatives include sesame, flax and chia.
Fifth is plain yogurt. This is a nutritious probiotic and the benefits are endless. Substitutes are almond yogurt and coconut yogurt.
These are the five foods and Father George Rutler would agree that they should be eaten daily.
