10 Foods That Will Change Your Life

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

After all the excitement and over-indulging during the Fourth of July weekend, it's time to get healthy!

An article in the NY Times opened our eyes to foods we should not only be eating, but also feeding our families. Dr. Bowden, author of The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth, gives his advice for the 10 foods you should be consuming on a regular basis to help with our body image.

Beets
Not always a favorite with kids, but it's the best one for you. Beets are a rich source of folate and a natural red pigment that is known to be a cancer fighter.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Eat beets roasted, raw, or in a salad.
Cabbage
It's packed with nutrients such as sulforaphane, a chemical that boosts cancer-fighting enzymes.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Eat it in a slaw, or top off your burger or sandwich with it.
Swiss Chard
This leafy vegetable is loaded with caroteniods, which strengthen eyesight over time.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Chop and saute in olive oil. You can also incorporate other vegetables into your saute.
Cinnamon
For people with high cholesterol or problems with their blood sugar, cinnamon may help control it.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Cinnamon can be sprinkled on coffee, oatmeal, cereal or baked goods.
Pomegranate Juice
Pomegranate juice is delicious, packed with antioxidants, and appears to lower blood sugar.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Drink it! Simple as that.
Dried Plums
These are actually prunes, but some get turned off just by that word, so dried plums it is. Prunes contains cancer-fighting antioxidants.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Wrap the dried plums in prosciutto and bake.
Pumpkin Seeds
You don't need to wait until Halloween to get your kids to eat these. Pumpkin seeds are packed with magnesium and the high levels of mineral are associated with a lower chance for early death.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Roast these with your kids or sprinkle on a salad.
Sardines
You may think "yuck," but sardines are full of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, and vitamin B that your body needs.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Buy sardines packed in olive or sardine oil. If you're gutsy, attempt to eat them plain, on a salad, or on toast.
Turmeric
Dr. Bowden refers to this as the "superstar of spices." It contains anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Spice up your scrambled eggs or any vegetable dish with turmeric.
Frozen Blueberries
It's possible that blueberries can strengthen your memory, or so says a round of animal tests. You can find frozen blueberries all year round.
Dr. Bowden suggests: Blend with yogurt or soymilk to make a tasty smoothie.

I’m impressed, I must say. Actually not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the difficulty is something that not enough people are talking intelligently about. I am very completely satisfied that I stumbled throughout this in my search for something relating to this.

Hey, just looking around some blogs, seems a pretty nice platform you are using. I’m currently using Wordpress for a few of my sites but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

As far as me being a member here, I am glad though that I am a member. When the article was published I received a username and password, so that I could participate in Comments, so perhaps that is it. But we’re certainly all intellectuals.

Excuse my stupidity, but I can’t seem to find your sites rss feeds. Mind directing me to it? Thanks.

Let me start by saying nice post. Im not sure if it has been talked about, but when using Chrome I can never get the entire site to load without refreshing many times. Could just be my computer. Thanks.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

I was just seeking this information for a while. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative web sites in top of the list. Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
