doctor with fruitMany families today are short on time, making processed and packaged foods an easy choice at the grocery store. However, these foods often lack the nutrition your body needs to function properly and stay healthy. Try adding the following eight foods, along with other healthy options, to your diet for improved wellness.
  1. Broccoli: Did you know that broccoli contains twice the amount of protein as steak? Add in the vitamins and nutrients that it also contains and this is one veggie that’s great for every diet, including vegetarians who need a good protein source.

  2. Watermelon: Even though the weather is cooling, you can still find this summer favorite in many grocery stores. And it’s a good thing because watermelon is one of richest sources of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps boost your immune system. It also has a very high water content so you can rehydrate while enjoying each juicy bite.

  3. Cherries: With antiviral and antibacterial properties, these tiny fruits are fantastic for your immune system. Plus, they’re also packed with various vitamins and nutrients that aid with inflammation and minor pain relief.

  4. Onions: Even though you may cry while cutting onions, they are a natural antihistamine that can help relieve watery eyes and other allergy symptoms. They are also full of vitamin C, which can help relieve cold and flu symptoms as well.

  5. Honey: Like cherries, honey also contains antiviral and antibacterial properties, which makes it great for boosting your immunity and fighting off infection. Honey is also a great way to sweeten tea and baked goods in place of sugar.

  6. Spinach: Full of vitamin K, vitamin E, fiber, potassium, lutein and folate, spinach packs some serious health benefits. These nutrients can help protect against age-related macular degeneration, strengthen bones and clear artery walls of cholesterol buildup.

  7. Kiwi: The fiber, potassium and other nutrients found in kiwis help boost your heart and vascular health, along with lowering cholesterol. Plus, kiwis provide powerful immune support with twice the amount of vitamin C as an orange.

  8. Yogurt: This morning staple is loaded with probiotics, which are the good bacteria that improve gut and digestive health. However, you must choose a fat-free, low-sugar yogurt for the best health benefits.
