We’re still celebrating the New Year over here at Nuts.com, and we want to make sure we’re helping you fulfill your healthy eating resolutions. If you’re making an effort to cook more healthy foods this year, here are a few metabolism-boosting foods for you to try.
Surprised that nuts are number one on our list? Nuts are a nutrition powerhouse, especially when it comes to boosting your metabolism. For example, almonds have magnesium, a mineral that’s important for a healthy metabolism. Cashews, walnuts, and macadamia nuts are just a few more examples of nuts that will keep you feeling full and energized.
2. Garcinia Cambogia
This is a new product we have that’ll help you knock off that holiday weight. Garcinia cambogia is a powder that’s derived from the rind of a small, pumpkin shaped fruit of the same name. This extract works by promoting thermogenesis to help block fat and suppress your appetite. Add this extract to water, juice, or a smoothie and take it 30 minutes before each meal.
Beans are another super-nutritious food that are easy to incorporate into your diet. They’re high in protein, fiber, and iron, nutrients that will optimize your metabolic rate. You can add them to soups, stews, or just spice them up and eat them as a super-nutritious side dish. Try our organic red lentils, organic green lentils, organic pinto beans, and organic black beans.
4. Hemp Seeds
Here’s another superfood to jump-start your metabolism. Hemp seeds have all of the essential amino acids and fatty acids the body needs. You can snack on these throughout the day, toss them into a salad, blend them into a smoothie, or even incorporate them into your favorite baking recipe. It’s winning combination of iron, magnesium, zinc, and protein will keep you energetic.
5. Rolled Oats
Start each morning the right way with a bowl of our rolled oats. They contain a significant amount of fiber and magnesium, which will keep you full until lunchtime. Eating a bowl of oatmeal in the morning can also help you lower your cholesterol, prevent heart failure, and stabilize your blood sugar. Plus, it’s delicious!
Just because you’re trying to eat cleaner and healthier doesn’t mean you have to skimp on the sweets. Organic cacao nibs are the original unsweetened chocolate chip. They’re made from crushed beans and are packed with powerful nutrients. You can sweeten a smoothie, put them in a trail mix, or even eat them raw. Put those antioxidants to work while you enjoy a truly healthy chocolate treat!
