Food We Should Ideally Eat Daily

  Black Bean     Blueberries             Carrot        Walnuts         Oats

Black Beans:
Black beans boost brain power because they’re full of anthocyanins, which are antioxidants that improve brain function. One 1/2-cup daily serving provides 8 grams of protein and 7 1/2 grams of fiber. Beans in general are low-calorie and free of artery-clogging, heart-disease- promoting saturated fat.

Blueberries:
Blueberries  more antioxidants than any other well-known fruit. They also help prevent cancer, diabetes and age-related memory loss. Because they’re rich in antioxidant vitamins A and C, blueberries also boost cardiovascular health.

Carrots:
Carrots are a great source of the fat-soluble phytochemicals beta-carotene and vitamin A, which help protect you against cancer and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and asthma.

Walnuts:
Walnuts are richer in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than salmon. They’re also loaded with more anti-inflammatory phytochemicals (polyphenols) than red wine and contain half as much muscle-building protein as chicken. Consume daily about seven nuts, to enjoy the benefits of walnuts.

Oats for Better Abs:
Oats contain soluble fiber, which protects against heart disease by making your arteries suppler and lowering your blood cholesterol level. Oats are complex carbs, which means that through their protein content (10 grams of protein per serving), they slow down the release of sugar to the blood stream, making it possible for you to use the fuel as energy and to build muscle. Building muscle helps you burn calories more efficiently, even at rest.
