We have been bringing up the subject of superfoods many times in our blog posts recently, as they are very much the big talking point in food circles, from quinoa to kale to chia seeds etc. There is no doubt that adding some superfoods to your daily diet can be a terrific help in keeping you fit and healthy but this is only one piece of the jigsaw.
It is no good adding a few blueberries and spinach to your diet and thinking that by adding these superfoods you are going to suddenly become immortal, there is a great deal more to health and fitness than this.
Good Variety Of Foods
You need to look at your diet as a whole. Are you consuming enough fruit and vegetables each day, are you getting a good variety of foods and food colours, are you getting the right balance of proteins and carbohydrates, are you eating healthy fats rather than unhealthy ones, are you getting a mix of nutrients, vitamins and minerals? The list can go on.
The key to health is to get the right balance in your diet. Eat regularly but lightly, incorporate a variety of healthy foods including the so-called superfoods, ensure you eat a good quantity of fruit and vegetables each day and lastly enjoy your food, choose a good variety of foods that are healthy but that you love to eat.
Nutritionally Dense Superfoods
Superfoods are basically nutritionally dense foods that help you get your daily dose of essential minerals and vitamins, so if you combine some of these with a good balanced diet this will stand you in very good stead. Some superfoods that were recognised at Harvard University recently as ones that should be consumed on a regular basis include salmon, beans, Greek yoghurt, blueberries, eggs, walnuts, quinoa, dark chocolate, oatmeal, eggs, olive oil and tea.
And don`t forget that as well as the food and drink you consume other essential elements of a healthy body include taking regular exercise each day and also look after your mind by practicing relaxation techniques, be it through yoga, meditation or mindfullness etc. A healthy body and a healthy mind go hand in glove.
