4 "Super Foods" You Need In Your Diet #WellnessWednesday

August 23, 2017 by Stephanie Melia
shefinds | beauty

What are super foods? They’re foods that are extremely rich in nutrients. Eating them not only means you have a better diet, but can help you achieve a better lifestyle, too.

Want to start incorporating more of these super foods into your daily meals? Start with these four. They’re not only easily accessible, but they all taste great and can be used lots of different ways.

Sweet potatoes are not only yummy, but they are also a super food. Why? Although they’re sweet, they boost your immune system and are packed with anti-inflammatory nutrients, Vitamins A and C. If you suffer from arthritis or asthma, this is the perfect food for you. Oh, and it can prevent or control diabetes because it is low on the glycemic index.

I’m not going to lie, spinach is a major part of my diet and I’ll tell you why. For one, I am iron-deficient and spinach contains so much iron to help me control my anemia. If you’re not a big meat eater like me, spinach will still help get you your daily intake of iron. Spinach also contains tons of vitamin A (hello good immune system!) and calcium for healthy bones. And spinach doesn’t have to be thought of as a boring, bland vegetable. It’s easy to cook and there are so many ways to make it yummy to eat.

Greek yogurt has been trending in health for a while now, and for good reason! Greek yogurt is full of probiotics which majorly improves digestion. Plus, it is chock full of calcium, protein, zinc, and vitamins B6 and B12 and creamier than regular yogurt. That’s a win!

What is an essential food for your diet, but also won’t break the bank? That’s right. Beans. Beans are easily accessible (and inexpensive!) at any grocery store and they’re jam packed with health benefits. They contain tons of fiber, protein, iron and you really can find so many ways to make them.

Hopefully, these 4 foods become a major part of your diet. Let us know your fave super foods!
