Food and gastronomy
There are many factors that contribute to your health, but diet may be the most important.
Food is fundamental to your health and well-being. Paris Match Belgium has selected for you foods full of nutrients that could help you add years to your life and protect your health.
First, legumes. Beans, lentils, peanuts and peas are excellent sources of fiber. They can also preserve your intestines. Experts suggest 5 meals of legumes per week. But protein is also very important. Eggs are high in fat, but research shows their impact on cholesterol is reduced. Studies suggest that those who eat a lot of eggs are less likely to have heart attacks.
Of course, we know the benefits of green vegetables. Like spinach and kale, they are rich in B9 vitamins which aid in cell growth and the formation of red blood cells. Green vegetables also help improve vision, bones and skin.
Finally, there are cruciferous vegetables. They help to naturally support the body’s detoxification process. Vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower help keep the intestines healthy.
