Growing up, I was never one to try new foods. I was the kid that stuck to the same few meals over and over because that’s what I enjoyed. So when I started eating the foods that we will cover today… It was a bit shocking even for myself.
However, after doing much research and testing on these foods, it was clear to me that I needed them for my health.
Although my wife hates all three of these, I can’t seem to get enough. I guess that shows you everyone is different, right?
If you want a simple way to boost your health and energy, start incorporating these foods a few times per week (or even everyday!).
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
I stumbled across ACV one day when I was sick with the flu. I was very nauseous and read online that ACV could help. So I tried it… Within 15-minutes my nausea was gone and I started feeling 10X better.
That day, I dug a little deeper into ACV and that’s when I learned exactly how powerful this stuff is.
ACV has been shown to be an immense healer in a variety of ways, however it’s also been shown to help with digestion, aid in fat loss, and help make us more sensitive to insulin.
Each morning when I wake up, I make a concoction that consist of 2 tablespoons of ACV, half a lemon, and ice-cold water. I find this to be the perfect way to start my day for immense energy and health.
What’s also great about this stuff is you can find a bottle for around 4 dollars and it will last you an entire month.
I used to HATE this stuff when I was younger…
It wasn’t until a few years ago when I was in New York City at Cat’s Deli that I discovered the deliciousness of sauerkraut.
This is now something I eat almost every single day because of the immense health benefits that it brings.
Sauerkraut is a fermented food that is filed with probiotics and lactic acid, both of which promote a healthy gut and provide your body with GOOD bacteria.
I like to enjoy sauerkraut with my eggs in the morning or mixed in with my grass fed beef. I’ve even grown accustom to eating it by itself with a little mustard.
Start out small, eating this 2-3 days per week then build up from there. Eating too much, too fast may give you some stomach discomfort.
The one that my wife hates the most, mainly because it sticks up the house a bit… A small price to pay for great health, right?
I have a pack of sardines at least three times per week, if not more. Sardines are a nutritional powerhouse. They are packed with calcium, phosphorus, iron (even more than spinach), potassium, and protein.
In fact, just 3 ounces of this stuff has over 30 grams of protein. Plus, sardines are packed with Omega 3’s which have been shown to boost fat burning, aid in brain health, and support the nervous system.
These things are a true SUPERfood if there ever as one.
Just by adding these three foods to your daily diet will drastically help improve your health, fat burning, joints, and more.
