Wheat and other whole grains are full of nutrients that may lower the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Wheat also supports healthy digestion.
Bran is a whole grain that is packed with nutrients and fiber. Bran also promotes healthy gut bacteria, heart health, and reduces the risk of certain cancers.
Flax seeds are loaded with nutrients that may help to improve cholesterol, lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and control blood sugar.
Eggs are full of vitamins and nutrients that work to raise good cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. Eggs are also great for eye health!
Almond milk contains staple vitamins such as vitamins E and D, and is a great source of calcium. Almond milk is an excellent milk substitute for our lactose intolerant readers. It is also low in calories and in sugar.
An apple a day keeps the maester away! Apples are an excellent source of nutrients that are great for heart health, can lower the risk of diabetes, lower blood pressure, and are good for your bones. Apples also contain compounds that help to fight asthma!
Food produced locally is more nutritious. This is because food contains the most nutrients around the time it is harvested. The longer food spends traveling, the less nutrition it contains. Less time traveling also means less exposure to harmful chemicals and less production of greenhouse gasses. What a tasteful way to decrease our carbon footprint!
