For many of us, the mental image of healthy and nutritious food is bland and boring. From bitter gourd and neem juice to boiled vegetables. Our firm-held notion that tasty food is always junk food, is a wrong belief to hold. Nature has provided us with food that is both healthy and tasty. Here are five healthy foods that will be loved by your body, health and even taste buds. 

Dark Chocolate 

For many life without chocolate is unimaginable. But do you know that your beloved chocolate is nature’s best source of antioxidants? The fats present in dark chocolate are good for your heart. It also includes fibre, iron, copper, magnesium and manganese in decent amounts. For an extra dose of nutrition add roasted nuts and seeds to your chocolate bar. 

Dairy 

We all have heard the praises dairy receives for healthy teeth and bones. But consuming diary is also helpful to boost our heart health, maintain blood pressure and improve digestive health. Dairy like milk, cheese and ghee, are rich sources of protein that helps you gain muscle mass. 

Peanut Butter 

Consuming 1 to 2 tablespoons of peanut butter every day can lower the risk of heart diseases. It can provide you with oleic acid which is good for your heart, blood pressure and blood sugar. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids. Peanut butter is recommended to those who wish to build muscles. 

Popcorn

Popcorn is the best alternative if you need a healthy snack. It is loaded with fibre and has a low-calorie count. It is filled with Vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin and other essential nutrients. If you reduce salt in your popcorn then it can also be eaten to lower the risk of high blood pressure. 

Hummus 

Hummus is a good source of plant-based protein. It is anti-inflammatory and is a good source of fibre. It has a low glycemic index that is favourable for diabetic people. Hummus can be consumed by both vegetarians and vegans as dips and spreads.

Apart from these foods, fruits like blueberries, bananas, papaya, mangoes have huge health benefits and are extremely delicious. Nuts and dry fruits too have great health benefits along with good taste. Coconut water and lemon water are two drinks that are delicious and nutritious. So include such foods and make your health and taste buds enjoy.
