5 Foods To Boost Your Metabolism

Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. Fish that are high in omega-3s, low in environmental contaminants and eco-friendly include: wild salmon from Alaska (fresh, frozen and canned), Arctic char, Atlantic mackerel, sardines. Eating fatty fish may play a beneficial role in reducing depression, helping maintain cardiovascular health and halting mental decline in older people.

Nuts and seeds such as almonds, walnuts, pistachios, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and peanuts all contain plenty of healthful nutrients. Just a handful provides an effective punch of vitamins, minerals and fats, all of which cooperate to influence your heart, your brain and maintain the normal structure of every cell in your body.

3. Beans

Reach for dried red beans and make your favourite and healthier Mexican meal at home. Kidney beans keep insulin levels in check so you feel full for longer, and also you will be less inclined to snack.

4. Berries

Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and blackberries are a naturally sweet and juicy snack. All berries are rich in micronutrients, polyphenols that reduce the body’s absorption of fats. They are a great source sof fiber, a nutrient important for a healthy digestive system. Eating blueberries may help your memory!
