We’ve picked out some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can get your hands on and want to share them with you. So in alphabetical order, let’s take a look at A through B:
💠 Almonds - They’re portable and loaded with antioxidants, fiber, vitamin E, and magnesium.
💠 Amaranth - This ancient grain (technically considered a pseudocereal) is kind of like quinoa’s cousin and provides protein, fiber, calcium, iron, manganese, and selenium. It’s also gluten-free.
💠 Artichokes - They may not look like much, but artichokes (technically not a vegetable, but a type of thistle) are a good source of fiber, vitamins C and K, and folate. They also bring iron, potassium, and magnesium. One serving also contains 4g of protein with only 60 calories.
💠 Asparagus - Low in calories, but huge on nutrition, asparagus has lots to offer including folate, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A, C, E, and K. There’s also some protein and fiber in there.
💠 Avocado - Loaded with healthy fats and fiber, avocados also contain vitamin C and potassium among over 20 other vitamins and minerals. They’re also low in carbs and keto friendly.
💠 Beets - We recently had an entire post about beets, but the short version is: they’re low in calories but high in nutrition. Bringing folate, manganese, and copper, beets can help with everything from heart health to growth and even athletic performance.
💠 Bell Peppers - While they’re composed of mostly water and some carbs, bell peppers have around 160% of your daily vitamin C needs as well as vitamins K1, E, A, folate, and potassium. This combo can help with blood and bone health, nerve and muscle development, and eye health.
💠 Berries - Whether you go for blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries, you can’t lose. They pack high amounts of polyphenols (plant antioxidants) that can help avoid several chronic health conditions. They also contain vitamins C and K, manganese, and a variety of minerals and phytochemicals.
