Top ten tips

Ten foods with great health benefits to include in your

diet this year, by Cheryl Lythgoe.

New research from

Benenden Health has

found that almost half

of adults in the UK

believe that they have an unhealthy

relationship with food, with the

youngest generations telling us that

they are most unhappy with their

eating habits.

Whether you are trying to

improve your physical health or

just change your eating habits, the

best way to approach your diet is

to ensure you are getting a good

balance of food groups, vitamins and

minerals and to aim for a rainbow of

colours on your plate.

The challenge and burden of

constantly assessing our eating

habits can have a significant impact

on our mental wellbeing, with the

pressure of following diets and

calorie counting often making us feel

worse. By removing these targets

and looking at making some simple

lifestyle changes we can all live a

healthy life and promote positive

wellbeing.

To help us do this, here are ten

foods that are great for our physical

and mental health and well worth

adding to our diets in 2022, if you

don't eat them already.

1. Yoghurt

Live yoghurt has an excellent source

of so-called friendly bacteria, also

known as probiotics. Probiotics can

help to strengthen the digestive

tract, which is perfect for the gut and

help to support our immune system.

Along with this, new research

has found that there may be an

emerging link between lactobacillus

and reduced levels of depression.

Yoghurt can be enjoyed in many

ways, including as a yoghurt drink or

mixed in with fruit, nuts or grains;

however, when buying yoghurt,

consider the sugar content as some

yoghurts can contain significantly

more than others.

2. Aubergines

Aubergines are a tasty vegetable

which can easily be added to a lot of

our favourite dishes. The vegetable

has an antioxidant that may help to

lower "bad" cholesterol. Along with

this, it is a great source of fibre and

has various important nutrients

which can support the immune

system and brain function.

3. Almonds

Almonds have a multitude of health

benefits and are a protein rich, tasty

snack that is also great for curbing

the appetite. Research has shown

that almonds can help to improve

our sleep and regulate blood sugar

as they contain high amounts

of muscle-relaxing magnesium.

Magnesium helps the body to switch

from its adrenaline cycle to what is

known as the 'rest and digest cycle'.

4. Ginger

Fresh ginger can help produce

stomach acid as it stimulates the

digestive system to keep food moving

through the gut, helping to support

digestion. Along with this, studies

have recently been looking into how

ginger may affect serotonin levels

and may help to reduce anxiety. The

best way to incorporate ginger into

your diet is by adding it into soups,

stews, smoothies or stir-fries. You

can add grated ginger to boiling

water to make a refreshing tea, and

even add a slice of lemon.
