There are foods that are healthy and then there are foods that are powerhouses. I've got 10 here that are supersonic super foods that you absolutely should include in your diet if you want to lose weight, get as healthy as you can and look your best!
Here they are:
1â€"Tomatoes. The all-powerful tomato can do all kinds of things, besides make your favorite spaghetti sauce. It's rich in lycopene, an important nutrient that may lower the risk of all kinds of cancer, prostate included. Plus the vitamin C factor is an added bonus!
2â€"Greens. I love braised greens (steam them till bright green, then sautÃ© in olive oil and garlic, put a lid on them and let them finish cooking after I turn off the heat). Any kind of green will do, from Swiss chard, to kale, to collard greens. They're all delicious. I can eat 1/2 a pound in one sitting!
3â€"Almonds. I'm a huge fan of nuts, especially raw almonds (and walnuts, too). I place 10 of them in a ramekin and munch them at my desk, lingeringly (it's too easy to eat too many, so I measure them out). I take my time and they seem to last. I also make up little zip lock bags of almonds to have on hand. One bag of these nuts is always in purse for an emergency snack!
4â€"Salmon. I absolutely adore grilled salmon. It's gotta be WILD though, if you want the benefit of the omega 3 fatty acids (farm-raised salmon doesn't cut it). My absolute fave is wild Alaskan Sockeye. I just had it for dinner tonight (with some braised greens) and I'm in love. I heat up the barby (I have a gas one), throw the frozen salmon on, skin side down, sprinkle some salmon seasoning from Paul Prudhomme (generously, I might add) and that's it! EASY BUTTON and absolutely delicious; no planning necessary!
5â€"Frozen berries. I make my smoothies ... Continue
