Take a look at yourself – how do you feel? Are you suffering from any medical issues or are there areas of your body – inside and out – that you think need improvement? We all live hectic lives and it’s understandable that at times keeping track of our health can be difficult.
Regardless to how stressful and chaotic life gets, we all need to eat. But what are we eating? Hopefully foods like fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamins and nutrients.
Women, specifically, are more prone to iron, vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies. While supplements are great, nutrients are the most potent when they come from food. Different foods also provide different health benefits. For instance, “nuts like almonds and pistachios offer heart-healthy fats that help to keep us fuller for longer,” Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, NJ, says, and “eating dark chocolate may help heart health by lowering risk of stroke and heart disease.”
