Do you have a healthy shopping list? Are there items that you just won't buy? Could there be additional benefits about those items that you are missing out on? Most people are stuck in some sort of comfort zone in terms of their diet. When preparing your next healthy shopping list, here are some items that you should not exclude again.
1. Pumpkin Seeds
Do pumpkins only pop in your mind during Halloween? Well, you may need to consider pumpkin seeds as a great source of nutrients. They contain antioxidants as well as magnesium. They help to significantly reduce the risk of cancer since they help your cells to get more oxygen. They also aid in reducing damage to your body cells. Pumpkin seeds are commonly found near the almonds or peanuts in most stores.
Plums also need to feature in our healthy shopping list, especially dried plums. They offer antioxidants and chlorogenic acid. They are also able to significantly reduce your risks of getting cancer. Additionally, they help a lot in treatment of constipation.
Are you looking for a healthy juice to purchase? Consider purchasing pomegranate juice. This juice increases your energy and also helps in the reduction of blood pressure. Just by taking 4 ounces of pomegranate juice, you'll get half your daily vitamin C recommended intake.
Cinnamon is loved in most parts of the world but there are still many who brush it off. It will greatly help in reducing your blood sugar and risk of cardiovascular disease. Other benefits of cinnamon include lowering cholesterol, help with yeast infection, arthritis relief and provision of anti bacterial effects.
These are among the great super fruits that you need to be eating. They have the highest antioxidant capacity when compared to all fresh fruits. They are great immune builders and people who eat them frequently have less instances of cold, flu and many other bacterial and viral diseases. Blueberries also aid in reducing belly fat, promoting urinary tract health, preserving vision, preventing heart disease and promoting brain health. Now, that's one fruit that you should never leave out of your healthy shopping list.
