The old saying goes ‘you are what you eat’, and it couldn’t preach much more of the truth. Eating a well balanced diet, full of healthy foods is the best for making you feel good. Our team is made up of the best chiropractors Westminster has and understands why you should take nutrition, exercise, and chiropractic seriously.
So here are some of the most recognisable foods to give you that feel-good factor:
What was once considered only good for cattle is now a go-to healthy food for many. The leafy green is an all year round vegetable and is so cheap to stock up on. It is recognised for being high in fibre, low in calories and has no fat. Additionally, it is high in iron, vitamin K, antioxidants, vitamin A and C, calcium and is fantastic as an anti-inflammatory.
The Brazil nut can definitely be considered as a wonder nut. It is a great anti-oxidant and is very high in selenium (approximately 2,000 times more than other nuts). Not only this, but it is known to seriously boost your mental performance. Just make sure to get hold of some that don’t contain any extra salt.
Every part of a tomato has something different that is healthy. The skin has phytonutrients also known as lycopene, a fat that can help to prevent depression. It also has an impressive number of vitamin C, A and K along with folate, thiamine, magnesium, manganese and potassium. In abundance this is also great for those who require more iron in their diet, all the while being a strong antioxidant.
Fortunately, this is only scratching the surface of a plethora of healthy foods available. Others which are proven to be beneficial not just for your physical health, but mental as well are anything like avocado, broccoli, oranges, oily fish, blueberries, garlic and beetroot. One rule you perhaps could follow is to ensure you eat the rainbow in fruits and vegetables everyday; along with following the national guidelines of a minimum of 5-a-day.
