Want to live a long and healthy life? Try eating these 6 healthy foods and see what happens.

fb315ab5509bc0f66ffeae651208e897?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720We eat many kinds of food and fruits every day to sustain our body and improve our health. We eat so we would have strength to carry out our daily activities and also to prevent us from getting sick. This means that we eat so would be normal and would be able to do the normal things that people do.

5bb485e4f779a68a1ac734b34d82f5ca?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720There are different kinds of food and different places where food is gotten from. Many people consume any food that is available to them provided that it tastes good and would fill their bellies. However, there are many poisonous foods out there that can make a person weak, sick and even die. It’s also unfortunate that these foods are out there in abundance while the ones that will do us a lot of good are really scarce.9f1409e06a016ae6dece33686e93fa33?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720This has made food poisoning one of the leading causes of premature death all over the world. 

There are certain foods, however, that are touted to be the best foods to eat to live a longer life. Many of these foods are scarce but it’s better to go far and wide to get these very healthy foods than to sit there and keep eating the not-so-healthy ones. 

ffb81fc1182b2850779c18a31ef512a5?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720One of the reasons these foods are said to be healthy is that they have extremely low side effects compared to other foods. They can boost your health and make sure that your body’s immune system is strong and also make sure your skin is glowing. Do note that they cannot stop physical occurrences like accidents but as far as health is concerned, they are the best foods to eat.   

Without further ado, i give to you seven foods and fruits that can make sure that you live long and healthy. 

1. Apples 

02e93dd2407add74a3ca5046c7d30eda?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Apples are very vital in improvement of physical appearance and are well-known natural ingredients in the prevention of early aging.19b1ca4f2f91dfe74b7befe3eea959c1?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720They are packed with anti-oxidants which help fight against free radicals- body aging substances produced by the body itself.0ac07c846ffad629d7bc34c6cca70291?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Rubbing blended apple peels can remove blemishes and make your skin smooth and fine.572e1255a8fc7604626f38be284a84f3?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720

2. Blueberries

Blueberries are one of the healthiest foods in the world because of the number of nutrients they pack.c89fdf3733242d1bde0ed4c055e93668?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720The same is true for most berries around the world due to the high concentration of polyphenols – a micronutrient shown to prevent degenerative diseases which is very much abundant in berries.74b9318e26db41360eca885ead59a62d?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Blueberries also contain many healthy substances which can help reduce the risks of heart diseases and many other sicknesses that affect adults.

3. Fishes

If you eat enough fish instead of meat, then you are already on the road to living a long, healthy life.

27ae40863979cfb955d106cae3d85c72?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Fishes like salmon, mackerel and sardine are very healthy fishes which contain omega-3 fatty acids that are very important in combatting heart diseases, brain damage and stroke.d8930e4f38aa6b90c30635913677383c?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720They also contain immune system-boosting vitamins like vitamin A and D. Replacing fish with meat will go a long way in ensuring that you are healthier and live longer.bd89ba5f3744632147bbb12cc0bbb0d9?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720

4. Olive oil

Vegetable oil, groundnut oil and palm oil will not guarantee that you live very healthy or live a long life.42e5eaabc11368f7044c6bff67104967?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720

Though palm oil is more helpful, it has high cholesterol levels which when coupled with other factors can affect the heart. 

592f3ea251f618a1a12a2f8e3ea30ab6?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Olive oils are the best oils to put in your food whether cooked or not. They have a high content of micronutrients called phenols which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which are vital in helping your body stay strong and healthy for longer. ead7f6b51ce144ad3b571fd8b2db5aa9?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720 

5. Dark-green vegetables48531ffd2c9558afc3ed776ec654038b?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720

Eating a meal that is high in leafy green vegetables will not only improve your life expectancy, it will also increase your brain capacity which can help you remember things easily. Vegetables can add a significant amount of years to your life due to the many number of nutrients they contain.45d500788fdd8894bbd1832c8c8acb94?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720Nutrients like vitamins A, B-6, C, E, and K, selenium, niacin, zinc, phosphorus, potassium, calcium and iron will go a long way in reducing various health risks.

6. Foods that contain fiber

bb59f5feb8b0a7d55008cb2d701774c2?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720If you want to live longer, you should eat more green plantains, green bananas, oatmeal and other foods that are high in fiber. Fiber aids in digestion and help regulate body sugar level.b42b30a90a4921233c5fce0fb18dc881?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720They also reduce the number of times you eat a day thereby curbing over-eating – a dangerous life-shortening habit.

7. Eat more nutsf24bbb552895791cadbeb080d4faae26?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720

Almond nuts, walnuts and other nuts help reduce blood sugar level in the body by reducing our craving for food. They fill up the belly and stay there for a while so that we won’t feel hungry all the time.d7e3ee52aaf88b6e88d6e68393575046?quality=uhq&format=webp&resize=720They are also good for reducing blood sugar level which is a major threat to the life expectancy of many adults.

Finally, remember to eat well and eat all in moderation. Don’t take junk foods and stick to what is in this article because they are verified methods to live long and healthy.
