5 foods you should eat every day for optimal health…

Due to the corona virus, 42 million people may experience food insecurity in 2021, and the pandemic has only made things worse. Those who are food-insecure often skip meals or eat highly processed and fast foods, which tend to be more affordable, rather than choosing healthful options.

1. Apples-
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away—an axiom apparently supported by evidence. Apples (and berries) are rich in the anthocyanin, Cyanidin 3-O-galactoside (Cy3Gal). “The antioxidant properties and other health effects, including anti-inflammatory, anticancer, anti diabetic, anti-toxicity, cardiovascular, and nervous protective capacities, are highlighted in purified Cy3Gal and in its combination with other polyphenols,” wrote the authors.

2. Mushrooms-
Mushrooms, however, are fungi, and lack roots, seeds, and leaves, and require no sunlight to grow. Whether eaten alone, mixed into food, or served as a salad topping, mushrooms make the perfect everyday addition to the diet.

3. Whole grains-
To meet the daily recommended intake of grains, it’s a good idea to lean heavily toward whole grains. Refined grains are processed to be fully digestible and thus plentiful sources of energy, after being metabolized to monosaccharides like glucose in the small intestine. In addition to glucose, however, whole grains contain indigestible fibers, which further contribute to health. Image Via- IndianExpress.com

4.Nontropical vegetable oils-
With all the oils on the market, it can be difficult to choose the healthiest one. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), it is best to select a nontropical vegetable oil with fewer than 4 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon and devoid of partially hydrogenated oils or trans fats. Examples include canola, corn, olive, peanut, safflower, soybean, and sunflower.

5. Tea-
Across the pond, and in numerous other places around the world, tea time is a daily ritual for many. And with good reason—the daily consumption of tea can be quite healthy, according to research tea intake was a significant protective factor in terms of cognitive health—drinking 1 cup of tea yielded a 6% decrease in the risk of cognitive deficits and deficits.
