Christmas and Christmas Eve are two days where people tend to go overboard in terms of food consumption. They spend a ton of time in the kitchen preparing foods that taste great, yet they tend to forget about the repercussions of it all. This Christmas, I want you to take a different approach. Instead of chowing down on delicious desserts and booze, I want you to opt for some superfoods that will leave you feeling good about yourself, your body, and your skin.
Superfoods For A Super Christmas Holiday!
Here are some of the best superfoods that you’ll want to indulge in this Christmas. It wouldn’t be Christmas without cranberries. These are one of the best superfoods that exist, far as I’m concerned at least! This food contains something called anthocyanins which can help you fight off urinary tract infections. The same chemicals that help you fight off the UTIs can also help you lose weight and fight off gum disease as well as stomach ulcers. Don’t be afraid to enjoy a heaping scoop of cranberry sauce this holiday season.
Another superfood that you might want to chow down on is brussel sprouts. Most people either love them or hate them. The biggest nutrients that brussel sprouts contain are called zeaxanthin and lutein. Both of these nutrients protect your body from aging. Oh and if you’re interested in fighting cancer, these brussel sprouts will help!
A superfood that many might not be familiar with are satsumas. This is a fruit within the citrus family that contains a ton of vitamin C. As you know, vitamin C is one of the best immune boosters known to man. It’s also great for collagen production.
Another fantastic superfood is none other than the turkey. It’s probably one of the best foods that you can eat. Why? Well, because it has a lower fat content than chicken and it’s jam packed with protein. It’s great for your nails, skin, and your hair as well.
Last but not least, I had to had nuts on the superfood list. Eating nuts can help keep your heart healthy. What I mean is that they help cut down your chances of getting heart disease by about 15 percent. For example, almonds contain a significant amount of vitamin E, which helps keep your skin young and healthy. If you’re looking to increase your selenium intake, then you can have some Brazilian nuts. Find out what this and other foods can do for your skin by clicking here.
All of these superfoods are very much acceptable at any Christmas occasion. You’ve got plenty of time to still work them into your culinary concoctions this holiday season.
