Health is Wealth
You read the title people, health is wealth! You can't live The Good Life if your body is rotting on the inside. This week we're sharing five foods you MUST incorporate into your diet. Okay, we won't say must, but we strongly encourage you to incorporate these foods, and to eat them regularly. We're just looking out for you, plus...you can't read the blog if you're unwell!
Be sure to follow us on Instagram if you want a sneak peek of what we talk about each week! You can find us at @tgood.life
For our first healthy food, we have oatmeal! Oatmeal is not only one of the healthiest grains, but the fibre in oatmeal helps lower cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and also slows down digestion. Oatmeal is also jam packed with vitamins such as folate and potassium. Throw some berries on top with a drizzle of honey and you have health right there in a bowl my friend.
Now with this superfood, they have to be treated delicately. If you boil the hell out of them, say goodbye to their nutrients. Instead, opt for eating them raw or lightly steamed. Broccoli has many benefits like largely contributing to your vitamin C and calcium intake, all while reducing the possibility of having heart complications later on in life.
We're still researching if you get all of the health benefits if the almond is encased in chocolate. However, we do know they are good for providing your body with iron, magnesium, and vitamin E.
Studies have shown that if you drink tea regularly it is possible to reduce your chances of having cancer, diabetes, and even Alzheimer's. Tea actually also helps your gums and teeth! You're probably wondering, how the heck is tea doing all that? The answer is flavonoids. To get all the flavonoid powers, its recommended to drink your tea freshly brewed!
Greek Yogurt 🍦
We already know what you're thinking...greek yogurt tastes gross. But not all greek yogurt tastes bad! You just have to find a flavour you like! Our personal favourite is french vanilla-extra creamy. Greek yogurt is good for your tummy, and actually contains more protein than regular yogurt. If you really want to bless your body, throw some oats and berries on top!
