Chilly winter days are the best time to enjoy the creamy fruit avocado.
Avocados have a lot to offer – vitamins A, C and E as well as folic acid, magnesium and potassium. In fact, the heart-healthy monounsaturated fats in them allow you to absorb more nutrients from other foods.
The monounsaturated fats also help the epidermal layer of your skin retain moisture, thus preventing dry skin. Eating this fruit also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improves your skin tone. It also improves the production of collagen, which maintains your skin’s elasticity and firmness.
Replace the cheese and mayo in your sandwich with slices of avocado.
You can use also avocado oil to massage your body before taking a bath. This will moisturize your dull, dehydrated and itchy winter skin.
This beautiful vegetable is exceptionally high in antioxidants as well as a number of vitamins and minerals.
Broccoli is particularly high in vitamin C, fiber, beta-carotene, folate and potassium.
It also benefits your dry and flaky winter skin. The vitamin C stimulates collagen production to keep the skin healthy, while the vitamin A protects the skin cell membranes and prevents skin damage due to sun exposure.
Plus, with just 15 to 25 calories per serving, you do not have to worry about increasing your waistline during the winter months.
Add broccoli to as many vegetable dishes and stir fries as you can. For some extra flavor, try steamed or baked broccoli. Broccoli soup is also liked by many.
Along with these 10 winter superfoods, you must also include dark chocolate, green tea, sweet potatoes, chia seeds, winter squash, jaggery, pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, honey, oatmeal and grapefruit in your diet.
