The -ber months are here, which only means one thing — HOLIDAY FOOD! Office parties, family gatherings, and barkada reunions are aplenty, and it will be hard to say no to everyone. Eating healthy could definitely be a challenge, so here’s a list of top 3 superfoods that you should make sure to include in your diet especially this holiday season:
1. Dark green leafy vegetables
Leafy vegetables like spinach and kale are excellent sources of calcium, zinc, folate, magnesium, fiber, and vitamin C. They can reduce your risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. They can even protect you against certain types of cancer due to their high levels of anti-inflammatory carotenoids. Although some have a bitter taste that not everyone may like, mixing them with your soups or salads can help make them easier to enjoy.
Eating carrots can help more than just improve your eyesight. In addition to antioxidants, carrots also contain beta-carotene which reduces the risk of certain cancers. They are also believed to help flush toxins out of the body and reduce fat and bile in the liver. It also aids in the lowering of blood pressure by reducing the amount of cholesterol in your blood, while the high fiber content cleans your gastrointestinal tract. And because carrots can be eaten raw or cooked, it is very easy to incorporate this into your daily diet.
Although mainly used as a flavor enhancer, ginger actually has a number of potential medicinal effects. It contains antioxidants that are responsible for certain health benefits such as managing nausea and reducing pain caused by acute inflammatory conditions. Ginger is also known to be effective in reducing the risk of dementia, heart disease, and certain cancers. You can eat them fresh which you can add to your soup, tea, or sauces.
But what if you don’t have time to cook and prepare full meals? Or maybe, you simply don’t know your way around the kitchen at all? Well, there is an effortless way to include these superfoods into your diet and that’s by simply juicing them instead. Not only is it easy to do, but it lets you consume vegetables in a form that can be easily absorbed by the body.
