Fresh Start Magnificent 7 Super Food List

1. VegetableSweet potatoes. Full of vitamin A, Fibre and vitamin C, these little beauties are lower on the glycaemic index which means you are less likely to get a sugar spike and is better at warding of the silent killer, Diabetes. I often swap white potatoes for sweet ones, they taste great with a little low fat butter.
2. Broccoli. At the top of the list of super foods, full of vitamins and a great source of calcium. Broccoli also contains the cancer fighting chemical, sulforaphane.
3. Apples. A great source of fibre and disease fighting flavonoids. These little wonders can reduce heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.
4. Bananas. The potassium in bananas helps maintain the body’s sodium levels and combats high blood pressure. I love to make my kids banana and strawberry smoothies as a healthy alternative to sweets and chocolate. They are also said to help overcome depression due to their high levels of tryptoplan, which is converted into serotonin, the happy mood brain neurotransmitters. They are also great at protecting you against post exercise leg cramps and due to their high levels of the Vitamin B12 reduce swelling and aid production of white blood cells. Why not take a look at some of the other amazing banana facts.
5. Red onions. These little red wonders have high levels of quercetin, which in recent studies suggest has potent anti-inflammatory properties. According to another recent study, eating just half a red onion a day can reduce your chances of stomach cancer by 50%.
6. Lentils. A versatile meal addition and full of protein, fibre and iron. Lentils add a variety of textures to make your dinner a lot more interesting. Lentils also help to lower your cholesterol as it contains high levels of soluble fibre which lower the risk of heart disease and stroke by cleaning out your arteries. At the Fresh Start boot camp we give you delicious lentil soup, actually tastes like beef, I love it!
Spinach7. Spinach. Provides around twice as much iron as other green vegetables and is also rich in vitamin K, which helps maintain healthy bones. Iron in your diet is essential in the development and growth of muscles and builds a strong immune system. Vitamin K is essential for strong bones and preventing heart disease, some say that it is as important as Vitamin D and that they both complement each other in working to build strong bones.
