You Really Are What You Eat

Recent dietary research has uncovered 14  different nutrient-dense foods that time and  again promote good overall health. 
Coined  “superfoods,” they tend to have fewer calories,  higher levels of vitamins and minerals, and many  free radial fighting antioxidants. 
Beans (legumes), berries (especially blueberries),  broccoli, green tea, nuts (especially walnuts),  oranges, pumpkin, salmon. 
soy, spinach, tomatoes, turkey, whole grains and  oats, and yogurt can all help maintain a healthy lifestyle. 
And where one might  have an effect on a certain part of the body, it can also affect the health of other  body functions and performance, since the whole body is connected. 
With these  14 foods as the base of a balanced, solid diet, weight loss gimmicks and other  fly-by-night programs can become a thing of the past in your life. 
Conversely, the ill-effects of an unbalanced diet are several and varied. 
Low  energy levels, mood swings, tired all the time, weight change, uncomfortable  with body are just a few signs that your diet is unbalanced. 
An unbalanced diet  can cause problems with maintenance of body tissues, growth and development,  brain and nervous system function, as well as problems with bone and muscle  systems. 
Symptoms of malnutrition include lack of energy, irritability, a weakened immune  system leading to frequent colds or allergies, and mineral depletion that can  trigger a variety of health concerns including anemia. 
And since the body is connected, realizing that an unhealthy body will result in  an unhealthy spirit only makes sense. 
When we nourish our body with these  superfoods and complement them with other nutrient-dense and healthy fresh  foods, our spirit will be vitalized and healthy as a direct result. 
Many modern diets based on prepackaged convenience foods are sorely lacking  in many vitamins and minerals, which can affect our mental capacities as well,  and cause irritability, confusion, and the feeling of ‘being in a fog’ all the time. 
Superfoods can be the basis of a sound, healthy, nutritious solution to curing  many of these ailments and more.
