How These 3 Foods -- Oatmeal, Pumpkin Seeds, And Sprouted Grains -- Boosting Your Nutrition
If you’re looking for some foods that are not only healthy but also tasty and calorie-rich to support your body, you are in the right place. Most people consume the bulk of calories mainly from meat. When we want to switch to a plant-based diet or for whatever reasons that we need to remove the meat from our diet, it’s crucial to fill your calorie needs with foods that are rich in protein and healthy fats.
These 3 foods are high in nutrition and will be a great choice to include when you are turning into a plant-based diet.
Oatmeal is, perhaps, the king of breakfasts. Vegan or not, it’s beneficial to include oatmeal in your nutrition program. Oatmeal contains a very wide spectrum of amino acids, fiber (both soluble and insoluble), and provides a complex source of carbohydrates.
Oatmeal will help you feel full and refreshed all day long while being super nutritious.
Hands down, pumpkin seeds are the most underrated and underutilized food source for anyone looking to grow stronger. Not only are pumpkin seeds super healthy because they’re loaded with good fats and are high in fiber, but they also contain a very impressive spectrum of amino acids.
Pumpkin seeds are especially rich in an amino acid called leucine, which is crucially important in protein signaling after a workout. Pumpkin seeds are nearly 50% protein by weight and 50g/day would provide you with a great source of post-workout protein.
Traditional bread is made from processed flour and processed wheat. To support your health, consider using sprouted grains, instead.
Sprouted grains are unique in the sense that they undergo very little processing and are very dense in calories.
Sprouted grains are created by germinating the plant and consuming it very early on. This leads to a very dense and nutritious punch that also contains a very low glycemic index and better bioavailability.
Include sprouted grains in your grocery list if you are a fan of whole-grain bread and nutritious foods.
If you are still actively seeking variability in your food choices, you will notice that there is still a huge array of foods you can eat for optimal performance, health, and longevity.
In order to thrive on a plant-based diet, eat these three foods and continue to actively seek other nutrient-rich sources of protein, carbohydrates, and fats.
