It’s all well and good having a little bit of decadence in your diet – especially on special occasions – however, it’s not a habit that we should get into on a regular basis. Too much junk can really impact our health and you should always revert back to eating healthy food as regularly as possible. Here are a few foods that you should try and get into your diet as much as possible.
Fish is often considered one of the healthiest foods and for good reason! Fish is packed full of protein whilst also being lean and it’s a crucial source of omega-3 fatty acids. Fish contains many of the essential vitamins you need to be healthy and can reduce the likelihood of heart disease in later life.
Most fruits are naturally low in fats and calories which make them a great snack in between meals and an essential element of a balanced diet. Eating a lot of fruit every day can help to minimise heart disease and will provide you with many of the nutrients you need to live a healthy lifestyle.
Like fruit, we’re taught to understand that plenty of veg is important within our diet. Vegetables contain fibre and are naturally low in both fats and calories which will help to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure.
Berries, specifically, are a great fruit to consume as much as possible. They are high in antioxidants, contain barely any calories and help to fight inflammation.
Finally, dark, leafy greens like spinach and kale are essential for a healthy diet. They contain a huge amount of nutritional value and should be included as much as possible within your diet.
