FIVE BADASS FOODS WITH BENEFITS:

 

Eat better, eat cleaner and reap all the free benefits.

Haven’t you realized that if you simply ate cleaner, made better lifestyle choices and made less dumb unhealthy ones, you may just be cleaner, better and smarter? Let’s not lose touch with what “food” truly is here. Good, clean, un-processed, real, sexy foods. Allow me to introduce to you my top FIVE BADASS FOODS WITH BENEFITS. They will pay you back in dividends.

1- Arugula: Let me give you a style update here. Iceberg and Romane are so last year! Change up that pantry and opt for darker colors this season. The darker the leaf the more nutrient dense s0 in regards to greenery, dark is in, light is out.

2- Rainbow Swiss Chard: Besides being stylishly colorful and delicious, Swiss chard packs on mega amounts of Vitamins A, C, and K, along with copious amounts of manganese, magnesium, and iron. Worried you don’t know how to cook the darn stuff? Well, click here for a video that aims to please: How to Cook with Swiss chard?

3- Sardines: Dr. Oz once explained to me what “leptin” levels were- levels that control your FAT.  Keep them in check with more omega rich foods, like sardines! Plus they are SO frickin’ delicious, sustainable and cheap. Get smart(er). Consume more sardines.

4- Berries: Blueberries, cranberries, blackberries, currants, strawberries, raspberries! And no, I’m not talking about Captain Crunch Berries either. Berries are a spark of delight from childhood: handfuls, bowls with yogurt and a sprinkle of granola- sounds delightful! The most fantastic part about consuming these little bits of heaven? They contain plenty of vitamin C, E, and antioxidants. and can also help in keeping your skin smooth and sexy by assisting your body with the natural manufacturing of collagen.

5- Quinoa: If you really want to fill up on one of the world’s perfect foods, this complete protein is the Inca’s secret to life longevity. With amino acids, protein and it’s gluten free! You’ll be swapping from wasted couscous in no time.
