5 superfoods, our plant-based selection

Diet plays a crucial part in the pursuit of a healthy life and a strong health. Thus, people often advise to consume fruits and vegetables on a regular basis, for their nutriments and vitamins inputs. However, some foods have more benefits than others. They are what we call superfoods. We find a huge number of them, so we would like to introduce to you our small plant selection.

 

1 / Avocado, champion of good fats

 

super foods

 

Very popular these past years, this fruit does not demerit its belonging into the Super foods family. It is a true source of monounsaturated fats. Fulfilling more than 20% of the daily needs in folic acid, its fat inputs protect the heart while fighting against bad cholesterol.

The avocado, thanks to its richness of oleic acid (monounsaturated fats), transmit to the brain the feeling of satiety. Thus, an American study has showed its effects after consuming half an avocado in the morning. It would reduce the feeling of hunger for a long time (between 3 and 6 hours). Be careful, do not over eat it, especially if you are trying to lose weight, because it is still quite fat.

 

Tip:
A good alternative to replace butter in your sandwiches is to use a crushed avocado. It will bring you just as much fat as butter while remaining healthy.
