A healthy diet doesn’t just consist of the standard variety of vegetables, grains, beans, fruit and lean meats. One of the most important aspects of eating well is to eat a variety of food! Humans are naturally creatures of habit and it can be easy to fall into a routine of eating the same foods. Break this habit and you will notice better health and improved vitality. It may even help you push through a weight loss plateau you’ve hit.
Here are 7 foods that are not only delicious but also healthy.
The average person is likely familiar with seaweed in two ways: the green stuff in the ocean and the nori sheets used for sushi. Seaweed may not be very popular in traditional Western cuisine but it would be very much worth it to pick up a bag at your local Asian market or health food store. Some major grocery stores also sell the dried, roasted kind as a snack in sheets. Very tasty…kinda like potato chips.
Seaweed is packed with nutrients, vitamins and minerals but one particular mineral is the reason why you need to try this food: Iodine! Seaweed is a natural source of iodine, something majority of foods do not have. By eating seaweed, the iodine you consume will help you maintain proper thyroid health.
