Healthy FoodsWho doesn’t love a good dose of energy to keep themselves going throughout the day? Unfortunately, most of that comes from high cholesterol/sugary meals that are very unhealthy. Nature has provided us with an alternative solution which not only offers energy, but also great health benefits. Here are 7 superfoods that you can eat every day!

  • Berries
    Berries are excellent source of fiber which helps in the overall digestive process. They also produce an acid that can be used to counter cancer. To top it up, they contain high amounts of vitamin C, an excellent choice for healthy skin.
  • Eggs
    Eggs are a huge source of protein, and can prevent untimely hunger pangs as well. They also offer antioxidants that keep the eyes sharp and healthy.
  • Beans
    When it comes to supplying iron, beans are the number one choice. Iron helps the body transport oxygen into the cells. They also contain high amounts of fiber and minerals.
  • Nuts
    Nuts are pretty much the best source for healthy unsaturated fats. These specific fats are good for the cardiovascular system due to the presence of Alpha Linolenic Acid.
  • Oranges
    One large orange might contain enough vitamin C to last you for the whole day! Vitamin C is extremely important for the production of antibodies and white blood cells.
  • Sweet potato
    Sweet potatoes are an excellent indirect source of vitamin A in the form of alpha and beta carotene. Vitamin A keeps the eyes and bones in good shape. Sweet potatoes are also rich in good carbohydrates and can fuel your body for a longer time.
  • Broccoli
    Probably the best natural multivitamin, broccoli contains high amounts of vitamin C, A, K and folate. It also contains a compound called sulforaphane, which helps prevent (and possibly cure, according to studies) cancer.
