Foods that are ‘gold’ for your body

We’re inspired by all things gold this April with our Golden Box, where one lucky WOOPer will win a foodie experience each week.

On the theme of gold, and of course, food, we present 5 of the healthiest foods that are ‘gold’ for your body!


1. Apples

Not only are apples delicious and abundant, but they’re also good for you! They are an excellent source of antioxidants which clear the body of free radicals and may even help you live longer. Recent studies also suggest that an apple a day not only keeps the doctor away, but it helps to reduce cholesterol!

2. Almonds

Almonds are rich in nutrients, including magnesium, vitamin E, iron and calcium. They also have the most fiber of any nut, keeping you fuller for longer which make them an excellent snack.

3. Broccoli

A single 100 gram serving of broccoli can provide you with over 150 percent of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C, and can help to shorten the common cold. It also has anti-cancer as well as anti-inflammatory qualities. However, overcooking can destroy these benefits.

 

4. Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in fiber and antioxidants and may help prevent disease and keep the body working properly. Studies also show that those who eat blueberries are less likely to suffer from cognitive decline, and also that they reduce the development of fat cells.

 

5. Oily fish

Examples of oily fish include salmon, trout, mackerel, herring, sardines and anchovies. Their fillets contain omega-3 fatty acids which provide benefits for the heart, as well as the nervous system. Oily fish are also known to provide benefits for patients with inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
