    10 Stay-Healthy Superfoods

    10 Stay-Healthy Superfoods

    34 Stay-Healthy Superfoods
    What if keeping a wisely stocked kitchen meant that you’d have to worry less about what’s in your medicine cabinet? Even though there are no “magic” foods that can take the place of say, aspirin or a decongestant, eating well can protect against a surprising number of ailments. “Every time you choose a healthy food, you’re making the decision to care for yourself, and warding off disease, premature aging, and physical and mental decline,” says Elizabeth Somer, RD, author of Age-Proof Your Body. “If you regularly load your plate with colorful produce, whole grains and other healthy foods, you stack the deck in favor of living long, happy and well.” These healthy picks can help you do just that.

    Beat Stress with...Sunflower Seeds
    A good source of folate, which helps your body produce a pleasure-inducing brain chemical called dopamine.

    Beat Stress with... Spinach
    Studies show that magnesium, which you’ll find in leafy greens like spinach, improves your body’s response to stress.
    Try A nutrient-packed spinach salad for lunch when you’re on a tight deadline.

    Beat Stress with... Blueberries
    Their antioxidants counteract the effects of stress hormones like cortisol on your body.
    Try ½ cup with your morning cereal or as a snack anytime.

    Get Energized with... Almonds or Almond Butter
    They help stabilize energy levels thanks to a mix of protein and healthy fat.
    Try A small handful of almonds (or 1 Tbsp almond butter) with apple slices or whole-grain crackers for a midafternoon boost.

    Get Energized with... Eggs
    ll-carb breakfasts (like a bagel or muffin) can make you sluggish by boosting levels of serotonin, a calming hormone. Fight fatigue by adding some lean protein—like eggs—to your morning meal.
    Try 2 eggs (or 1 egg and 2 egg whites) on whole-wheat toast for an energizing breakfast.

    Get Energized with... Coffee
    Studies show that a cup of joe may be even better than a power nap for a quick shot of get-up-and-go.
    Try One or two 8-oz cups a day (more than that can cause the jitters).

    Fight Insomnia with... Lowfat Yogurt
    Calcium-rich foods boost levels of serotonin, a calming hormone that promotes sleep.
    Try A 6- to 8-oz serving of skim milk or lowfat yogurt two hours before bedtime.

    Fight Insomnia with... Bananas
    They’re packed with B6, a vitamin that helps keep your internal clock ticking normally, signaling when to fall asleep and when to wake up.
    Try A small banana every day.

    Fight Insomnia with...Potatoes
    Research shows that high glycemic index foods like potatoes have a sedative effect.
    Try Half a potato within four hours of bedtime.

    Keep Your Memory Sharp with... Salmon
    The omega-3s in fatty fish can reduce inflammation, which may lower your risk of developing dementia as you age.
    Try Two to three 4-oz servings every week.
