National Nutrition Month reminds us all about the importance of eating healthy on a regular basis. If you’re having trouble eating healthy, you can try adding certain ingredients to your meals that taste great and will give you a nutritional boost.
Here are four ingredients that you can try adding more of this National Nutrition Month.
Nuts can be eaten whole or added to certain foods to give you more of the healthy fats and antioxidants that are needed to help your body function its best. Brazil nuts, walnuts and cashews are among the healthiest nuts that can be added to breakfast foods and certain chicken dishes. You can also try making some cookies with macadamia nuts for a more nutritious dessert.
Whether you want to eat just a bowl full of rice or use it as an ingredient in some of your meals, rice can help boost your energy and promote better heart health. Rice often works well when combined with chicken or pork and vegetables for a delicious and nutritious meal. You can also try making rice and bean burritos for some extra spice and nutrition.
Classified as a fruit, the avocado has long been touted for its healthy fats and carbs that it contains. Avocados are also high in vitamins C and K. You can use avocados to make guacamole to use as a dip or spread. Avocado slices even work great as burger or sandwich toppings. Avocado is also a popular addition to salads.
If you want something sweet but don’t want to indulge in candy, peaches can be the perfect food. When you eat more peaches, you’ll be giving your body some extra potassium along with more vitamins A and C without the added refined sugar. Peaches also work well for making pies and goat cheese salad. It’s even possible to use peaches as an ingredient for salsa.
These ingredients can be great additions to many of your meals and desserts. Visit Famous Foods or our Famous Foods Bulk page and you’ll be able to celebrate National Nutrition Month the right way by including more of these ingredients in your foods.
