As part of a healthy diet, whole foods play a significant role in helping our bodies function optimally. There are hundreds of extremely nutritious whole foods, but the dozen on this list do more than contribute healthy nutrients—they help you heal. In fact, every food on this list boasts multiple healing effects, from fighting cancer to reducing cholesterol, guarding against heart disease, and more. Eat these super-healing picks and start feeling pretty super yourself.
- For Good Skin – Drink Berry Smoothie. Weather can cause your skin to get all dry and blotchy, and downing caffeinated drinks dehydrates you even more. Swap your latte for a smoothie made with skim milk and strawberries or blueberries – both fruits are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants that keep your face smooth and moisturised (kind of the drinkable lotion).
- For Running Nose – Eat pasta with tomato sauce. It might feel good to dig into a big cheesy, melty bowl, like mac and cheese but all that super rich food actually makes you more susceptible to colds. Saturated fat stresses you immune system. Instead, go for whole wheat pasta slathered in tomato sauce, which has a massive dose of vitamin C that may spare you from getting sick.
- For Low Energy – Eat wheat toast with peanut butter and banana. If you’re sleepy by midday, blame your bagel. Its refined carbs cause your energy levels to spike and then take a nosedive. Replace it with whole wheat toast. Your body processes whole grains slower, so you won’t crash. Add peanut butter for protein and banana for a natural sugar boost.
- For Mood Swings – Eat turkey chilli. A pizza slice smells amazing, but the grease and carbs make you sluggish and bloated, which affects your mood. But when you dive into a warm bowl of turkey chilli, the lean protein actually switches on feel good chemicals in your brain.
