My husband and I used to have “Superfood Monday“. When I say we used to, I think we did it like once. Maybe twice. But it was a great idea! For dinner on Mondays our whole meal consisted of superfoods. So we are bringing it back. This inspired me to google what are the healthiest foods on the planet. You will find a lot of differing opinions in the search results but I liked this list from Fitness Magazine. There’s nothing crazy, everything is accessible to everyone, and the items all seem to be pretty tasty and satisfying.
So..stock your fridge and pantry and have these items around you all the time. It’s sort of a no brainer.
Lemons– according to Fitness Magazine just one lemon has 100% of your daily Vitamin C requirement. Squeeze some in your smoothie, enjoy with warm water first thing in the morning, and add to your homemade salad dressing at dinner.
Broccoli– There is a massive amount of Vitamin K up in those stalks! Enjoy it steamed, make a broccoli salad, or roast them with EVOO and salt and pepper.
Dark Chocolate– You’re welcome. Great for reducing blood pressure and loaded with antioxidants. I have a piece after dinner, add some to my smoothie bowls, and put bits of dark chocolate in my oatmeal in the mornings.
Avocados– I eat an avocado almost every day. Loaded with healthy fats, fiber, and folate…it’s a superfood powerhouse. Make guacamole (duh), avocado toast, or just add a little pink salt and eat the delicious meat straight from it’s own jacket.
Salmon– Right, we all know salmon is soooo good for us. So eat more of it. Wild caught is best and loaded with Omega 3s which we want and need. Grill it, steam it, eat it raw at a great sushi place, whatever. Up your intake of salmon ASAP.
