5 healthy foods that should be on your grocery list

More than any other factor, what you eat will impact your mental and physical health.

Your body is constantly regenerating cells (skin, blood, hair), and it has to get those building blocks from somewhere. Your body relies on your food intake for that. So, what have you been eating? Is it offering all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs?

When you don't take in the right foods, you become deficient and prone to disease. You can prevent much of that by adding certain foods to your grocery cart on a routine basis.

5 healthy foods that should be on your grocery list

Eggs: These nutrient-packed gems are one of the most perfect foods for humans. They have an ideal amino acid profile, which means the bits that make up protein are provided in just the right ratios for humans to absorb and use.

Salmon: This fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids. not only is that important for combating inflammation, it also boosts your mood. How much omega-3 you need depends on how much omega-6 and omega-9 you are taking in because these need to balance in a certain ratio in your body. Omega-6 and 9 fatty acids generally come from things like baked goods, and most people are getting too many, making them particularly deficient in omega-3.

Lemon: This citrus can be added to your water or as flavor for your food. It's an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants, and as such it provides heart health benefits, aids in weight loss, and boosts digestive health.

Broccoli: This cruciferous vegetable helps prevent cancer. It is packed with vitamins, minerals, and bioactive compounds. It's also low in calories, so together this makes broccoli a very nutrient dense food.

Blueberries: These berries contain antioxidants and phytonutrients. They are especially important for your brain health, and they are potent free-radical-fighting powerhouses. Blueberries prevent cancer and aid heart health. They are also an excellent source of prebiotics, which are necessary for maintaining a healthy gut microbiome.

Try incorporating these five healthy foods into your everyday eating. They should make an appearance on your shopping list as much as possible.
