2. Whole-grain foods

Whole-grain foods are rich in fiber that helps digestion. The reason why whole grains are healthier alternatives to refined or processed grains is that they comprise bran, endosperm, and germ of a grain. On the other hand, refined grains only have the endosperm left, which offers no to fewer nutritional benefits.

Whole grains also have the essential vitamins and minerals, whereas refined grains only have the starchy part of the grain left. Therefore, always look for 100% whole-grain foods, such as

● Brown rice

● Quinoa

● Crackers

● Popcorn

● Cornmeal

● Pasta

● Oats

● Cereals

● Wheat bread

You can add these foods to your everyday meals or snacks to keep your blood sugar levels regularized.

3. Healthy fats

This is one common misconception that all sources of fat are bad for health. Some people mistakenly associate fat with poor health. However, some types of fat help preserve your health.

You can categorize healthy fats as monounsaturated or polyunsaturated. One example of this fat type is Omega-3 fatty acid that is found in abundance in fish oil. On the other hand, trans and saturated fats do nothing good to your body but increase HDL (bad cholesterol) levels in the blood, which further puts you at risk of developing cardiovascular disease.
