Superfoods which you miss to include in your menu

Everyone knows that fruits are full of antioxidants that fight with free radicals. Most people are aware of the fact that milk is one of the most ideal source of proteins. But eating and drinking the same food every day becomes boring menu and less varied than on nutritional values​​.

However, it is never too late to bring small "fixes" in your diet by including new healthy foods to which you have not ever killed on store shelves (or have done extremely rare).



Beet
In addition to the antioxidants found in red beets, it boasts a high content of folic acid, a form of vitamin B, which occurs naturally in certain foods. Beets are often known for their attractive looks and red colour. However, do not ignore it. You can eat salads, or to express it raw juice in combination with carrots and celery.

 
Kiwi
These bright green fruits are rich in vitamin C, which helps the stimulation of the immune system. This vitamin is also plays an important role in the generation of muscle and collagen fibers in the absorption of iron. Eat
the kiwi raw or make a smoothie with yogurt / milk.

Figs 

They are a source of simple carbohydrates that provide a quick energy boost by a rapid entrance into the bloodstream. Eating only 10 dried figs provides 61 grams of simple carbohydrates. But eat them wisely. Simple carbohydrates have a short life if not spent immediately as energy (in practice, for example), they are likely to become fat.

Chickpea

It is rich in vital nutrients. One cup of chickpeas (chickpeas) or 200 g equals 45 grams of simple carbohydrates and 269 calories, which gives you a boost of energy. A glass also gave 12.5 mg of iron, 202 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, and 39 of protein. Chickpea is low in saturated fat, sodium and cholesterol.


Pumpkin

It is rich in fiber and vitamin A, with low fat content. They are more delicious to eat roasted pumpkin with butter and cinnamon, sweetened with sugar or honey, but then it becomes quite calorific. Do not forget to eat its seeds. They are one of the most useful part of it, since they are filled with magnesium. Sprinkle them on your salad or eat them roasted. 


Cinnamon and Turmeric

These herbs are very useful, but very disregarded. Cinnamon helps control blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and the turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anticancer properties. Cinnamon is a perfect spice for sweets and turmeric - to vegetables.

In fact, 1 teaspoon cloves contains nearly the same amount of antioxidants as 1/2 cup fruit. In addition, the cloves can alleviate the flatulence and bloating. Seeds of clove can be chewed whole or ground.


Anchovy

You know that the fish is good source of protein, but maybe you're tired of eating the same species. Try anchovies. Adding 30 g of these small fish to your diet will give you 5.8 grams of protein for only 37 calories. They have a low fat content - '30 contain only 1.5 g of fat.

Linseed

Just one tablespoon of flaxseed provides 2.3 g fiber body - these are nutrients that promote the work of the intestine, lower cholesterol and control blood sugar levels. Flaxseed has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help in conditions such as acne and asthma. Add flaxseed to your breakfast cereal, yoghurt or her apple puree.
