Featured Image

 

When COVID-19 rode into town your kids were home all day and you and your family were hanging out at home too. We wish great health for all of you but now that we are settling into our new realities what can you do to keep your family healthy?

it’s time for your friends at Forever Slender MedSpa in Wayland, MA and Norton, MA to check in to help keep you on track! This post builds off of a prior post, which listed three great food choices and have lots of other great posts in our blog.

Three Healthy Foods for Better Health:

Mangoes

The COVID-19 pandemic reminded us of the importance of eating well, which meant getting essential vitamins and fiber. One cup of mango provides 100% of a days recommended daily allowance of ascorbic acid, otherwise known as Vitamin C. Vitamin C is needed for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues and is involved in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Mangoes also offer 1/3 of our daily needs of Vitamin A, Potassium (helps lower blood pressure) and also provides three grams of fiber.

Broccoli

Okay - Not everyone likes Broccoli. Just know broccoli is also a fantastic resource for Vitamin C, Carotenoids, Vitamin K and Folate. Add a little flavor to it with a spritz of lemon juice and sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese.

Carotenoids are beneficial antioxidants which can protect you from disease and enhance your immune system. Provitamin A carotenoids can be converted into Vitamin A, which is essential for growth, immune system functioning and eye health.

Vitamin K refers to a group of fat-soluble vitamins which play a role in blood clotting, bone metabolism and regulating blood calcium levels. The body needs Vitamin K to produce prothrombin, a protein and clotting factor important in blood clotting and bone metabolism.

Folate is one of the B Vitamins and is needed to make red (oxygen carrying) and white (infection fighting) blood cells in the bone marrow. It also converts carbohydrates to energy and produces DNA and RNA. Folate intake is extremely important during pregnancy, infancy and adolescence.

Garbanzo Beans (Chickpeas)

Garbanzo beans are rich in protein, fiber, copper folate, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. While all beans have these wonderful and important assets, garbanzo beans as extremely versatile as you can add them in all sorts of dishes. Add them to a salad, to a vegetable or other soups, stews, curries.

Buy the no-salt versions in the cartons to reduce sodium intake.

Eating these quality foods will improve the health of you and your family and your body will thank you for the eating well with better energy, increased infection resistance and even better brain power!
