Is enjoying a few of these treats in moderation going to be earth shattering to our health? For most healthy individuals, no it will not. However, to balance out the bad, let’s focus on some positive, healthy food and drinks we should be consuming not only during the holiday season but all year long.
Here’s a list of just a few of my favorites:
It’s loaded with vitamin C, vitamin B, and calcium.
Nutrient dense, and helps the body better absorb nutrients from other foods that are eaten with it.
Broccoli and Cabbage
These vegetables neutralize toxins in your liver.
A great source of folate and vitamin B6.
One of nature’s best sources of beta-carotene, full of fiber, protein, vitamin A & C.
Wild Alaskan Salmon
Excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids, high quality protein, essential amino acids, Vitamns A, D, B6, B and E as well as calcium, iron, zinc and magnesium.
Very rich in health-promoting flavonoids, including catechins and their derivatives.
They contain some of the highest levels of protein of all beans.
Raw seeds contain a large percent of the RDA for vitamin E.
Almonds are good for heart health and loaded with vitamin E.
Organic, Pastuerized Eggs
Wonderful source of high-quality nutrients, especially fat and protein.
Wishing you an inspired and empowered holiday season.
