Low-Carb Superfoods to Add to Your Diet
Another way to help make sure you're getting the right nutrients is by eating plenty of these low-carb superfoods! They have lots of the vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytonutrients our bodies need without adding a bunch of sugar and starch that our bodies do NOT need!
Eggs Really ARE Incredible
Eggs are just packed with nutrients! The white is almost all protein, but the yolk is really where the action is. Its purpose is to provide nutrition for the animal during those first vital phases of development until it is ready to get its own food. Is it any wonder it's so food for us, too?
You might also want to find out what terms like cage free, free range, and pastured eggs really mean (you might be surprised).
Green, Leafy Vegetables are POWERFUL!
They may look flimsy, and we may get tired of them, but there is a reason we are advised again and again to eat those green leaves. It's because they are probably the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, and they help protect us from many diseases and conditions we'd rather avoid.
Hurray! Chocolate is actually good for us! Of course, you don't want to eat the kinds with lots of sugar, so it helps to have some guidance. Find out about all the great things in chocolate, plus how to choose wisely and cook successfully with it.
Almonds, the Low-Carb Friend
Salmon, the Fish for People Who Don't Like Fish
You know it's packed with healthy omega-3 fats. You know eating fatty fish is good for you. But...fish. Lots of people shy away. Here's why you should add more salmon to your diet, how to do it, farmed salmon vs. wild, and more. Even my fish-hating husband likes salmon. I like canned wild salmon instead of tuna to mix with mayo for a salad.
Don't Be Shy! Try Flax Seed!!
Olive Oil is Even Better than You Think
We hear that olive oil is in the famously healthy Mediterranean Diet – and there's actually good reason for imitating the Greeks and pouring olive oil over everything (did you know a typical Greek person consumes 26 liters of olive oil per year?) Olive oil may protect us from cancer and heart disease, and reduce inflammation in our bodies.
