Superfoods And How To Incorporate Them! Dieting is one way to try and get your health in order. But, I feel like it’s more important to change your eating and lifestyle forever, not count on changing your diet to lose and can’t wait to get back to eating the way you always did.
When I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and decided to get rid of it. I knew I had to change my diet and lifestyle, so I looked for a change I could live with for the rest of my life. For me, that didn’t include exercise – I know myself well enough to know I would not do it for the rest of my life and if I lost the weight that way it would come right back when I quit. I ended up changing my lifestyle and losing over 100 lbs and have kept off off over 5 years now.
I found what worked for me, and I encourage anyone that asks me how they can lose their excess weight to look at themselves and their life and decide how they could change and not go back.
Once avenue you could explore is nutrient rich superfoods. It’s hard to escape the buzz about superfoods. By now, you’re probably aware of their health benefits and may even have a list of superfoods you want to try. Eating more of these uber ingredients, which pack high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, makes a lot of sense, but where to start?
Superfoods And How To Incorporate Them!
1. Make a Superfood Salad
Perhaps one of the simplest superfood recipes is a tasty superfood salad. Begin with a base of spinach, an excellent source of vitamin K, then toss in chia seeds, raspberries, broccoli, and avocado. Top it off with some grilled salmon and a dressing made with heart-healthy olive oil for a powerhouse lunch or dinner.
2. Snack on Atkins Superfood Bars
Sometimes whipping up a superfood recipe from scratch just isn’t feasible. Atkins’ new superfood bars provide a shot of superfoods in a pinch. Stash them in your purse or desk for a healthy, on-the-go snack. Available in tasty raspberry-chia, almond-
3. Whip Up a Smoothie
A smoothie makes an easy, nutritious breakfast when you add superfoods. Start with yogurt and/or milk (you can use non-dairy versions if you prefer) for creaminess and protein, and then whip in a mix of your favorite superfoods. Blueberries and pomegranate seeds add color and sweetness, while flax seeds, coconut oil, and avocado provide healthy fats. For a burst of vitamins and minerals, toss in spirulina or kale.
4. Stir into Soups
Kale has become one of the most widely touted superfoods, but the fibrous leaves and stalks that make kale so good for you also make it a little tough to cook with and chew. Here’s an easy hack: take your favorite homemade or store-bought soup, toss in some chopped kale, and let simmer. The leaves will become more tender and bulk up your soup without a lot of calories.
5. Get Sneaky
Rich in carotenoids, spaghetti squash offers a tasty, low carb alternative to pasta. So does spiralized zucchini. Get creative and swap superfoods in for traditional ingredients—you’ll add vitamins and cut carbs. Here’s another pro tip: grated cauliflower can substitute for flour in pizza dough.
