One amidst the “Worlds healthiest foods” (this should already make you happy), walnuts are packed with goodness.Walnuts are responsible for enhancing brain health and inducing weight loss. But what really helps to calm you down is the lowered cholesterol levels that ease out the blood flow. You can feel yourself relaxing within minutes.
GREEN AND WHITE TEA:
These teas increase your metabolism and lower cholesterol levels. And once they do all these things, you automatically feel rejuvenated and fresh. Not to mention these teas do contain caffeine, but with so many benefits, that little bit of caffeine can be forgiven!
The complex carbs that these legumes contain digest slowly, and that helps in weight loss and also regulates the neurotransmitter, serotonin, which is responsible for cheering you up.
And the good news is that apart from being extremely yummy, dark chocolate is quite healthy too. Rich in fiber, iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorous, copper, zinc, potassium and selenium (that is quite a long list already!), chocolate is a powerful antioxidant. It raises the good cholesterol (HDL) and lowers the bad cholesterol (LDL). It helps in lowering blood pressure, and relaxes the arteries.
FISH: Fish does wonders for your skin and hair. It boosts brain development, and is a great sun-less source of vitamin D. It prevents heart diseases and also protects against Alzheimer’s.
The proof is in the pudding – yummy can be healthy too! And nothing like warming up to a scrumptious, nutritious plate of food that will almost instantly make you HAPPIER!
