Fresh Foods Are the Key To Clean Eating

Though a shortcut to incorporating super foods into your diet would be to get fresh FKLA meals delivered, we’ve compiled a list of excellent super foods to incorporate in your daily diet for you to cook at home, to detox and jumpstart your journey to clean eating.

 

– Avocados. One of the most well-known and widely loved superfoods is the trusty avocado. A delicious and versatile fruit, avocados are highly nutritious and is jam-packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.

Sweet Potatoes. Another go-to for many, sweet potatoes are another popular favorite when looking for filling, nutrient rich vegetables that go with just about anything. Not only are they delicious, but sweet potatoes are loaded with nutrients like potassium, fiber, and vitamins A &

-Mushrooms. Though not as popular as avocados or sweet potatoes, mushrooms are also a widely-chosen option when people are looking to make their dishes a little healthier. There are many types of mushrooms with varying nutrients in each, but all contain potassium, fiber, vitamin A, and a variety of antioxidants.

-Seaweed. Though already used widely overseas, seaweed in cuisine is growing in popularity in the U.S. due to its great taste and nutritional benefits. Whether eaten in packs as a snack, or incorporated in broths, used as wraps in dishes, or eaten alone, seaweed has a wide array of nutrients, including vitamin K, iodine, and fiber, which cements its superfood status.

– Salmon. A very popular go-to when looking for a delicious fish to use in a fish, salmon is more than its wonderful flavor. Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, vitamin B, and potassium.

– Ginger. Whether used fresh, dried, powdered, or as an oil, ginger can do a lot more in a dish than enhance and bring out flavors in your dish – it can manage nausea, reduce inflammation, and reduce risk of many chronic illnesses.

– Garlic. Already a staple in most people’s kitchens, garlic also historically has many nutritional and medicinal benefits beyond it’s delicious taste. Garlic is an excellent source of manganese, vitamin C, vitamin B6, and fiber, which is just another excuse to throw some extra into your next dish.
