It’s a new year! New year, new you? We say, why not? With these fitness superfoods you’ll be able to stay fuller longer, perform better and get to your goal weight without craving bad foods. Well, almost, these are super foods but… they don’t have super powers.
Eggs are a no brainer, right? But they also carry a lot of myths around when it comes to when and how to eat them. Yet they come with a long list of health benefits and make a perfect snack ( keep hard boiled eggs in your fridge), or a post workout bite.
Steel cut oats
Oatmeal is so good for you and it fills you up for hours! To make it easier on you, prep some overnight oats in a jar that you can seal and keep for at least a week! In the morning, you can microwave with a little bit of water and you have a fitness super food that will pump you up to start your day and fill you up all morning.
Salmon is full of the omega 3 you need in a day with just 3 oz! And it’s versalite! Add it to a green salad, a toast, or pair it up with some veggies, a sweet potato or some quinoa.
It contains omega 3 and it’s very good for your intestinal health. Add it to salads, or to your overnight oats!
Greek yogurt is an amazing fitness super food because it’s something that comes as an easy grab on the go snack that you can “dress up” with a ton of other super foods like fruits, flax seed, or nuts!
Many weight loss programs will tell you to avoid avocados, but if you’re eating right, avocados add a good source of healthy fat, and it helps you absorb other nutrients. To keep track of your calorie intake, limit yourself to a small one a day, adding it to salads, smoothie or spread on a toast in lieu of butter.
Apples are in season this time of year and they’re great for gut health since they have so much fiber. Reportedly, an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
Nut butter is a great source of healthy fat and protein and it fills you up longer as well and you can explore and be adventurous (peanut, almond, cashew). Make a toast, add it to oatmeal or make apple sandwiches with this fitness superfood!
