The Best Foods for Men to Eat
As men get older, work-related stress and anxiety often pile-up and along with a sedentary lifestyle, can take a toll on wellbeing. Here are some good-for-men foods to maintain optimal health.
Colorful berries: The perfect snack, colorful berries are another ideal food which includes strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and cranberries. The main nutrients are antioxidant phytonutrients, anthocyanin, vitamin C, vitamin E, and potassium.
Power packed foods: There is no such thing as a magical food, but there certainly are foods which are super-rich in nutrients. One group includes walnuts as well as almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, macadamia nuts, pine nuts and hazelnuts which contain omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, protein, magnesium, fiber, potassium, and folate.
Plant based proteins: Another super food is beans, from red kidney beans to chick peas and are packed with protein, complex carbohydrates, fiber, B vitamins, iron, potassium, magnesium, and folate.
Lycopene containing foods: Including certain plant based foods, especially foods rich in phytochemical lycopene, are strongly associated with reduced risk of disease. Eat three to four or more servings of tomatoes a week and choose the reddest tomatoes you can find as vine-ripened tomatoes contain more vitamin C than most ordinary tomatoes.
Fiber containing foods: Oats and whole grains are another whose main nutrients are insoluble and soluble fiber, complex carbohydrates, iron, zinc, vitamin E, and selenium.
