At the turn of the new year, many people are looking to make drastic changes to help make 2015 a better year than 2014. Some like to change how they spend their money, some like to change their work out regiment, and others change their diet. People are always looking to fix the way they look. While many turn to working out more, a lot can be accomplished as well with a change in diet. You don’t always have to have a full turnover in diet. By eliminating a few bad foods and adding a few healthy foods, you can begin to make a slow but subtle change in your diet. Lets take a look at some of the healthiest foods on the planet that you can begin to slowly incorporate into your diet.
Obviously you would not want to have a whole lemon by itself, but did you know a lemon has more than 100% of your daily intake of vitamin C? If you could somehow find a way to work in just a half a lemon into your diet a day and come up with another way to incorporate vitamin C, you could make big strides.
I know what you’re thinking, duh of course I know broccoli is good for me but do you know how good? One medium stalk of broccoli has over 100% of your necessary daily vitamin K intake. It even has close to 200% of your daily dose of vitamin C. I can see it now, a slice of lemon and some broccoli on your dinner plate.
I know what your thinking, chocolate? Can’t be. If you have the right kind of chocolate, dark, it is in fact good for you. Just a quarter ounce a day can help reduce blood pressure. Its also rich in antioxidants which helps keep cholesterol levels down.
Want a way to avoid broccoli or spinach? One red potato has 66 micrograms of cell building folate, which is essentially the same amount found in one cup of either broccoli or spinach.
