Bread: Whole Grains, Multigrain, and White

Whole Grain Bread

Whole grain bread is far more nutritious than white bread, and does not cause the large blood suger surge like white bread does.

Many researches indicate that whole grain breads and pastas are beneficial for the body because they are very high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins, especially vitamin E. Because of this, many people assume that multigrain breads are also good for the body. Unfortunately this is not true.

Fruit and Vegetables

Fruit and vegetables are great sources for soluble and insoluble fibers which protect you from various health problems.

We all know that we need to have fiber as part of a healthy diet. It is especially true for many women, as they tend to get constipated and foods with more fiber such as high fiber fruits (see high fiber foods list below) will help to solve the problem. This is especially true for the younger people.

Banana is as good as, if not better, than most of sports drinks.

Many people drink sport drinks while they are working out thinking that they improve their workout intensity. It does, but if you are working out less than an hour, probably simple water is far more beneficial than drinking sport drinks, especially if you are doing weight training.

Blueberries may help to reduce stiffness from workout quicker.

Blueberries are well known to have great health benefits (see I Love Berries). They are high in fiber, vitamin C, and antioxidants. Not like other berries, we can keep them longer without them getting moldy. You can buy blueberries almost all year long at super markets these days. Recent studies have added a couple more reasons that we should eat blueberries regularly.
