The following foods are able to contribute to your body’s well-being, such as boosting your heart, muscle, metabolism and immunity.
[Muscle + Metabolism] Bison
Beef’s leaner cousin has less than half the total fat while still packing essential nutrients – like zinc, selenium and B vitamins – needed for optimal testosterone production, immune function and energy.
[Heart + Immunity] Kefir
This fermented milk packs a 2:3 ratio of protein to carbohydrates. Once in your digestive tract, it acts as a fertiliser, dumping billions of bacteria that benefit your heart, digestion and immune system.
[Heart + Metabolism] Kamut
This heart-healthy, nutty-tasting wholegrain yields almost double the nutrients of wheat, with 10g of protein and 7g of fibre in each cup. It’s rich in potassium, zinc and antioxidants.
[Metabolism + Immunity] Cauliflower
Although it’s in the cabbage family, think of it as “white broccoli” – nutritionally, that is. Cauliflower contains indole-3-carbinol, a compound that may help thwart cancer and repair your DNA.
[Metabolism + Immunity] Sauerkraut
The fermentation concentrates the anticancer compounds found in cabbage, such as ascorbigen. Fermented foods are also rich in good bacteria that help your digestive tract function optimally.
