Superfoods to Get Healthy
Author: Heather Slee
If you're planning on a pregnancy in the near future, it's a perfect time to get your body loaded with healthy food. It's a time to build up your immune system, to set good eating habits, and to give you the energy you need during this sometimes stressful time. One way to enhance your normal meal routine is to add more superfoods.
Superfoods are foods that are exceedingly rich in antioxidants, fiber, omega 3, calcium, or other important nutritional needs that fuel our bodies and make them healthy. These foods are linked to the reduction and prevention of disease. Also, eating a diet rich in superfoods will help you maintain your weight and mood.
So what foods should we be looking for?
- Dark chocolate
- Green tea
Also, fill up your grocery cart with dark greens (romaine, Swiss cheese, hard, kale, etc.), which are loaded with vitamins A, D, E, and K, not to mention iron and calcium.
