Food that should be eaten at least once a week

If we eat unhealthy and do not enter the necessary nutrients in the body (and in sufficient quantities), various health complications such as cardiac or stroke, diabetes, liver disease, etc. are possible. For their prevention, here is what foods are recommended to be at your table at least once a week:

1. Asparagus

The low level of vitamin B12 is common in patients with depression, and various studies have shown that the lack of these essential nutrients can inhibit the effectiveness of antidepressants.

A mug of asparagus (about 10 stalks) has 50% of the recommended daily dose of B12.

2. Avocado

Avocado is a source of mono and polyunsaturated fats that reduce LDL cholesterol (by 17%) and triglyceride levels (by 20%), and increase healthy HDL cholesterol. Recent studies have shown that avocados are also useful for treating hypertension (high blood pressure)

3. Carrots

The risk of prostate enlargement is reduced by foods rich in beta-carotene, a pigment that is found in carrots and sweet potato that gives orange color. A study found that men who consumed large amounts of foods rich in it had the lowest risk of prostate cancer.

4. Green tea

Green tea is rich in phenolic acids and flavonoids, two antioxidants that protect the body from harmful free radicals and oxidative stress. These antioxidants can reduce the development of breast cancer, colorectal or prostate cancer.

5. Peanut butter

Peanuts have a very low glycemic index and stabilize blood sugar levels in diabetics.

6. Salmon

Full of protein, healthy fat and B vitamins, salmon can reduce the risk of heart disease. Omega-3 fatty acids, in turn, reduce blood clotting, reduce triglyceride levels, and the risk of coronary arterial disease.

7. Tomato sauce

Tomatoes are delicious in summer, but not throughout the year. That’s why the tomato sauce is a great alternative to that. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene that reduces the risk of prostate, colon, or pancreatic cancer.
