There are a number of obvious ways to take care of your health. We all know to get plenty of sleep, work out regularly, and drink lots of water.
Another huge piece to this is making sure you’re eating right. This may seem like a no-brainer. Well how about eating foods that are not only healthy for you, but provide an extra boost that outshine even other fruits and veggies?
Here are 10 superfoods that go above and beyond the call—foods that keep you feeling great from the inside out!
1. Blueberries. Blueberries contain flavanoids, which help memory function. They’re also loaded with water, and we all know how important it is to keep hydrated!
2. Salmon. Not all fats are created equal (or bad). Salmon has omega-3 fat, which is a type of good, heart-healthy fat. And don’t forget the hearty amount of protein to be found in the fish.
3. Spinach. People like to joke about health nuts and their love of kale. But when you know the benefits to leafy greens, it’s hard to put them down! Spinach has a boatload of antioxidants, including vitamin C, vitamin K, beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthi.
4. Pistachios. Once again, fat ain’t so bad. Pistachios are filled with healthy unsaturated fat and compounds that lower bad cholesterol. And they’re the least caloric nut out there!
