What better season to change diet and to balances nutrients so that you feel fresh and energetic?
I love spring…it’s one of my favorite seasons.
I don’t know why: the flowers, the new energies around me…there is something special about spring.
More than that, I try to welcome spring with a May diet very simple to apply. Basically, after carefully screening the market, I have selected a list of May foods, as I call it.
For the month of May, my menu will comprise the following vegetables and fruits:
- Cherries - fortify the body, boost digestion and have revitalizing effects. Not to mention that they are a great source of vitamins and minerals. Specialists conclude that cherries are benefic in diseases prevention, being in the same time powerful antioxidants.
- Radish - is a powerful antiseptic, successfully used in cancer prevention. It keeps under control bad cholesterol while sugars are rapidly absorbed by our cells. Doctors recommend to use radish for weight lose.
- Spinach – rich in iron, calcium and folic acid, spinach fights not just cancer but also depression and anxiety. Recently, it was discovered that spinach prevents diabetes as well.
- Lettuce – will improve digestion and, due to the high content of fibers and antioxidants, lowers the risk of colon cancer. Low in calories, lettuce will help you lose weight…well, in the right combinations.
- Strawberries – contain 90% water and only 5% sugar, sugar which is slowly absorbed by the body. Provide antioxidants and keep us away from degenerative diseases.
- Spring onion – provides potassium, calcium, magnesium and iron. Consuming it on a regular basis improves mental processes and also memory. In the same time, maintains the health of your bones.
The truth is that the list is not that long. However, it’s wonderful if you follow it. Start the day with a strawberry fresh, continue at lunch with a lettuce cottage cheese and end the day with a plate of spinach. From now on, it is a matter if imagination and creativity.
Is important not to leave any out and combine them later on with other healthy foods.
