Our Top 15 Healthy Foods

Nutrition is a highly personal thing, just like one’s parking spot or desk at work; naturally, this means that you can do whatever you want with it. You can literally bathe in gravy and eat nothing but ribs – hell, it’s your choice.

Unfortunately, this nutritional misbehavior will finally reach up to you. If you need reasons to start eating healthy, there’s plenty. However, by reading this, you might not even need them. Here are the 15 healthiest foods you can eat.

Avocado

Avocado has a high concentration of fat (the good kind), carotenoids, omega fatty acids, pantothenic acid, copper, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin E, folate and other nutrients that are crucial for the well-functioning of your body.

Bananas

We think of vitamin C as the most trivial of all the vitamins, but its implications for our overall health are tremendous.  The same thing goes for potassium, manganese, and sugars (that are devoid of cholesterol).

Kidney Beans

There are bodybuilders who become real-life Hulks with the help of kidney business. The secret? They’re packed with protein, as well as with phosphorus, fiber, and iron.

Broccoli

Broccoli’s got vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, and calcium. Your nervous system and bones will enjoy it even if you don’t.

Spinach

Ever wonder why exactly Popeye got his ludicrous forearms pumping by eating spinach and not grass? It’s full of vitamins, it detoxifies the body, boosts the immune system and also contributes to the health of your hair.

Lemons

Believe it or not, 1 single lemon can provide the entire intake of vitamin C you need on a daily basis. That’s enough said…

Dark Chocolate

Not only it has a huge concentration of antioxidants, but it’s also been shown to help in decreasing high blood pressure.

Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibacterial agent and is your most faithful aid when you’re fighting an infection. This is merely the tip of the iceberg, as garlic is as much of a panacea as a plant can be.

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes contain protein (although in a small percentage), fiber potassium and an extremely high concentration of vitamin A. One single sweet potato grants all the vitamin A you need for almost 2 weeks.

Spirulina

Spirulina is a seaweed that’s in a class in itself. It contains no less than 60% protein. Instead of bombarding your body with all sorts of idiotic protein powders, get some spirulina and you’ll see the difference.

Pomegranates

Not everybody likes pomegranates, but those who do get a pretty decent amount of protein, antioxidants, and fiber in one serving.

Tuna

Tuna is packed with omega-3 fatty acid, iron, magnesium, vitamin B12, selenium, vitamin B6, and potassium.

Hummus

Get your proteins, good fats and fiber by hummus. I’ve never liked it, but I still eat a few scoops a few.

Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is legendary for having a ton of probiotics that contribute to your gastrointestinal health.

Onions

Onions lower cholesterol and keep your arteries healthy. The great thing about them is that they’re used in pretty much any dish you can think of provided that it’s no for dessert.

Conclusion

Some of us, especially the ones who’d rather cook than go out, eat many of the foods in this list on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many people don’t. If you want to avoid the doctor, you should incorporate these foods into your diet.

You’ll see what a difference they make right away, and you’ll never go back to the fast food and snacks that destroy your body.
