Since I am on a Ramadan Prep kick… I thought to include super foods that help us throughout the day even though we are fasting!!!
I have been reading an article from the CDC (during my rabbit hole style internet searching) that ranked the most nutritious foods for us aka ‘super foods’. There are 17 nutrients that place certain foods above the rest: potassium, fibre, protein, calcium, iron, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K. This list of foods keep us energised and helps reduce the risk of chronic disease.
A great way to stay healthy during Ramadan and the rest of the year is to include more of these items into your diet.
Listed here are the foods ranked in order. Score based off of 100 points.
|Item||Nutrient Density Score|
|Winter squash (all varieties)||13.89|
|Grapefruit (pink and red)||11.64|
What recipes would you use these vegetables in?
