AVOCADOS- THE BEST FAT

Avocados are a super healthy fat that our body needs. It is also known as butter fruit because it provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids. They contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals. It has been known that eating avocados can help reduce obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. It helps with keeping a beautiful complexion and increased energy. They are best mixed in a morning smoothie or even topped on a rice cake for a quick, and healthy breakfast.

KALE- THE BEST GREEN

Kale is an ultimate superfood in my opinion. Kale is high in fiber and water. It helps to prevent indigestion and helps to prevent constipation. It contains many B vitamins, and C vitamins which helps with iron absorption. It is very nutrient dense, and has a low calorie content. Kale is very heart protective and very anti-inflammatory. It helps to prevent inflammation in the body. I love using Kale in smoothies mixed with avocados and a banana. It’s a daily staple in my diet.

PEPPERS-THE BEST CARB

Bell Peppers and Jalapeno Peppers are the bomb. Who doesnt love eating them on a nice summer night? Peppers are low in calories and very high in Vitamin C. They come in various colors, and each one has a significant taste. They are loaded up with many vitamins and minerals and are amazing added to salads and also great for eating on their own. I love cutting them up and eating with a good hummus. They are good for eye health and help with anemia prevention.

These are just a few of the array of vegetables that should be added to your daily diet. Vegetables are so important in keeping your body healthy and your mind happy. The importance of vegetables should be in every persons diet on a daily basis. There is many ways to incorporate them into your diet.
