Superfoods seem to be the new “It” term in the food health world. You can’t go 10 minutes without someone talking about a new superfood and how amazing it’s making them feel. Superfood in general isn’t a new term; it’s just being tossed around so much it’s become part of our lexicon.  

Foods that are classified as super contain high levels of nutrients and antioxidants. These foods help build bones, improve your eyesight, keep your mind quick and prevent chronic illnesses. If that wasn’t enough, scientists now believe that they help with weight loss. As if we needed another reason to love superfoods.

 

Check out my list of the most beneficial superfoods available today.

Coffee

Coffee is my favorite super food and my morning lifeblood. Coffee helps with appetites, wakes you up and is jacked full of antioxidants. Drink it without sugar for optimal results.

 

Avocados

Avocados are my wife’s favorite food and they are just so damn healthy. Avos have that good fat, mono-saturated fats. These healthy fats satiate your stomach and you will feel less hungry. Avocados have long been known to help with weight loss as well as providing good fiber and protein.

 

Eggs

Eggs have a ton of healthy protein that will keep you feeling full long after breakfast is over. Don’t forget about breakfast for dinner, a great twist to revitalize your night.

 

Blueberries

Blueberries have incredible anti-aging properties because they are so rich with antioxidants. The real life fountain of youth must just be filled with blueberry juice. Blueberries make great snacks and pack tons of fiber along with natural sugars.

 

Black Beans

Black beans are an amazing source of protein, packing 15 grams into one serving. These are especially powerful and don’t have any of the bad saturated fats that are present in other proteins like red meat.

 

Oats

Oats are key to a healthy diet since they are full of fiber, which makes your body feel full. These oats are also heavy with resistant starches, which burns fat and speeds up the metabolism.

 

Salmon

Salmon has all the healthy fat your body needs and none of the bad fats like red meat. Fill up on salmon and watch your weight melt away. Salmon has monosaturated fats that help you feel full.

 

Bananas

Eat these little tubes of goodness when they still have a little green on them, bananas are packed with Resistant Starch, which boost your metabolism.

 

Red Wine

Red wine is magical thanks to the skin of the red grapes. Grape skin is full of Resveratrol, which is the antioxidant that basically stops fat from storing in your body. Drinking red wine every night will make you healthier and happier in life.

Dark Chocolate

Oh baby, we’ve been waiting for some deliciousness. Dark Chocolate can slow down your digestion process, making you less hungry for long periods of time.

 

Grapefruit

This wonderful fruit can help with weight loss by blocking sat storage. Grapefruits have a compound in them that lowers insulin levels and stops the body keeping fat around. People who eat a grapefruit daily can burn up to a pound a day by doing nothing else.

 

Almonds

Nuts are an amazing source of healthy fats and fiber, which makes you feel full. Almonds are great snacks that keep you full of energy and protein.

 

Green Tea

Full of antioxidants, green tea is your best weapon against illness. Packing more antioxidants than any other superfood, green tea should be a daily drink for you.

 

Broccoli

Broccoli is a cancer killer and not in a bad way. These green wonders pack so much fiber and antioxidants; one could possibly live off just broccoli and be fine.

 

Lentils

Full of resistant starches, lentils will fill you up with healthy carbs and no waistline adding ones. Lentils are a great meat substitute as well, offering tons of protein.

 

Oranges

Packed with fiber and very low calories, oranges are a great snack and should be a staple of your daily intake.

 

 

There are certainly more superfoods, but these are my favorites. Chow down on these and get the results you are looking for.
