Everybody learned to make the transition from poultry and ranch meat to veggies and seafoods as you became a health and weight-conscious adult. The foods listed here may sound — and look — sort of odd, but I have faith that you can learn to love these even stranger, but super healthy foods if for no other reason that they will do your body real good! As a semi-vegetarian, here are some of the foods that I started adding to my daily recipes:
Don’t be embarrassed just because it’s found in bird feed. Millet is gluten free, chock full of magnesium, Magnese, fiber and phytic acid and totally safe for humans. Magnese promotes the development of connective tissue, bones and sex hormones in the body. The crop is favored due to its productivity and short growing season under dry, high-temperature conditions.
A superfood typically ground up and consumed in liquid form, Wheatgrass cleans toxins from the body, and it’s considered healthier than almost any other vegetable you could eat. Wheatgrass can be grown indoors or outdoors. A common method for sprout production indoors is often on trays in a growth medium such as a potting mix.
Also spelled kimchee or gimchi, is a traditional fermented Korean side dish made of vegetables with a variety of seasonings. One serving of this fermented cabbage contains a full days worth of Vitamin C, as well as carotene and dietary fiber. But one of the highest benefits could be the healthy bacteria that aid digestion.
A cousin of cabbage and broccoli, this funny looking veggie looks like a turnip and is often a light green or purple color with white stripes. Great in salads or stir-fries, Kohlrabi packs a lot of Vitamin C, potassium and cancer-fighting phytochemicals. The taste and texture of kohlrabi are similar to those of a broccoli stem or cabbage heart, but milder and sweeter, with a higher ratio of flesh to skin. The young stem in particular can be as crisp and juicy as an apple, although much less sweet.
A grain crop grown primarily for its edible seeds and closely related to species such as beetroots, spinach and tumbleweeds. It is high in protein, and is tolerant of dry soil.
Another superfood and also called as leaf cabbage is a group of vegetable cultivars. They have green or purple leaves, in which the central leaves do not form a head (as opposed to headed cabbages). Kales are considered to be closer to wild cabbage. Kale is a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, vitamin E and several dietary minerals, including iron, calcium, potassium, and phosphorus.
