Fred’s Health Tip of the Day

Eating healthy and staying on budget!

We all know that we should eat healthy and exercise in order to live a balanced life. The problem is that it is not cost effective to eat healthy every day. Here are a few foods that will help you stay on the right path without you having to spend your whole salary on it.

Whole grains

Whole grains are beneficial to your diet. According to http://www.wholegrainscouncil.org, studies have shown that whole grains decrease the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, as well as heart diseases. 

Other benefits of consuming whole grains include a healthier blood pressure and a reduced risk of asthma. Excellent examples of very nutritious whole grains are:

  • Whole wheat
  • Whole oats/oatmeal
  • Whole-grain corn
  • Popcorn
  • Brown rice
  • Whole rye
  • Wild rice

Fruit

Different types of fruits are important for different reasons. There are, however, a few fruits that are beneficial in more than one way. They happen to be cheap too.

Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C, A, B6, B1, potassium and magnesium. These are great sources of antioxidants which boost the immune system. Vitamins B6 and B1 are important sources of energy production and will help fight fatigue. Vitamin C is known for its anti-ageing properties. Plus since there’s so much water in Watermelon, it helps to hydrate your skin.

Put these to tips to good use people!
