Not only is cinnamon delicious, but it’s also loaded with antioxidants, helps cut down inflammation, and helps improve sensitivity to insulin. Here’s the catch: The cheap cinnamon you find most often in the supermarket isn’t the best. You’ll want to find Ceylon, which of course is more expensive, and then get used to sprinkling it in your everyday cooking.
Next up in our “delicious and nutritious” list are blueberries, the antioxidant-packed superfood that features phytochemicals and vitamins C, K, and manganese. They taste amazing on cereal, in baked goods, or frozen.
Oh, avocados. What did we put on toast before we met you? Avocados can be a bit pricy in most stores, but worth it—after all, they’re packed with healthy fats, folate, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Turn avocados into guacamole, put them on toast, or just put some Himalayan pink salt and Olive oil on them and eat them whole.
Salmon is a staple in our house. So full of flavor and can be cooked in multiple ways. Salmon has so many benefits. Besides omega-3 fatty acids, it has protein, B vitamins, potassium, selenium, and antioxidants.
5. Sweet potatoes
There are many ways to enjoy this delicious food. Have it baked (or mashed) as a side dish or add sweet potato to salads, stews, or burritos. Have you had sweet potato fries yet? If not, you can make some. The kids really love it! And while you’re happily chewing those delicious sweet potato fries, know that you’re also putting vitamins and minerals into your body, especially vitamins A and vitamin C.
Remember to have fun, be grateful and you'll be on your way to living your most optimal life!
