Wild Salmon: Packed with omega-3 fats, wild salmon can help reduce the risk of sudden-death heart attacks and contains lots of vitamin D and selenium for healthy hair, skin, nails and bones. Always opt for wild in place of farmed.
Barley: This low-glycemic grain is high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, which help the body metabolize fats and promote a healthy digestive tract. Eating hulled barley on a regular basis is said to lower blood cholesterol levels and protect against cancer. Barley is rich in niacin, vitamin E, lignans and phytochemicals that function as antioxidants.
Sweet potatoes: Carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium and fiber are just a few of the benefits of eating this savory-sweet veggie, which is ranked among the highest vegetables on the nutrition scale. Sweet potatoes can help stabilize blood sugar, making them a great choice for diabetics, and are relatively low in calories. Try them baked in the oven or diced into breakfast potatoes with a hint of maple syrup, onions & peppers!
Kale: Contains high amounts of beta carotene, iron and folate. It's also a low-calorie, low-carb source of protein that's packed with fiber, which improves digestive health and helps you feel full.
