As men we all want to be super. Super to our partners, super to our kids, super on the job. So what happens when we start to lose a little of that edge? As a man I know I’m always looking for an edge to get me through my day, to feel better, and to improve my health. One of the best ways to get that edge is through nutrition. What we eat can make or break our day. It can make the difference in our performance on the job and our happiness in our lives. So what are you doing to keep that edge? Here are a few foods that will help you keep that edge and have you feeling healthy and happy as you take on the challenges of daily life. Add these to your diet and your friends and family will be wondering “Who is this super man?”
Blueberries-As we age, free radicals increase in number. They damage cells, promote diseases and cause premature aging. The anti oxidants in blueberries knock the free radicals out of service. Getting a little forgetful? Those same anti oxidants keep your brain and nervous system healthy ensuring clearer thinking and focus for the best memory possible.
Broccoli-Rich with a healthy supply of iron, calcium, fiber and vitamin C, it’s good for the circulatory system, and strengthening your bones. Did I mention the anti oxidants? There they are again. Broccoli is the top vegetable for men.
Quinoa-Never heard of it? This amazing whole grain superfood from the Andes packs a healthy dose of protein and unsaturated fats plus lots of vitamins. Use it as a replacement for rice or pasta and serve it with your favorite meat dish. It also tastes great!
Almonds-I can go on all day about nuts. Especially almonds. They are packed with protein and unsaturated fats and are great for the heart and digestive system. I like them as a healthy snack or even a meal replacement. Carry a bag or raw organic almonds with you throughout your day. They will keep you full and your mind off hunger. Eat them instead of a trip to the candy machine. Also try them in the form of almond milk or almond butter.
Turkey-Were you beginning to think I was going all vegetarian on you? Nah! Turkey is a very versatile cut of meat so you can eat it throughout the week without really having the same meal twice. It contains muscle building protein, it’s high in vitamin B and amino acids and contains the cancer fighter Selenium. Just leave out the mashed potatoes and candied yams and you’ll be fine.
Green Tea-It’s good for weight loss, it fights cancer and is known to slow the development of Alzheimers. Need I say more? Drink it hot or cold and get used to carrying it with you everyday.
Ok, after reading this article if you’re not feeling super, I’ll bet your super hungry. Why don’t you grab one of these super foods and do your mind and body a favor. You will be feeling super in no time.
