I’m not quite sure how I came across Splendora weeks ago
, but it is a brilliant idea. It is a daily blog and weekly newsletter about all things cool before they hit the mainstream. A few weeks ago, I came across one of their postings about 10 Foods Women Should Eat
and thought I would share it with you. Personally, I was surprised at how many of the foods I typically eat and enjoy! My favorite on the list is raw cacao, and yes, they explain the link between our love of chocolate and our craving for it during “that time of the month.” Other items include steel cut oatmeal (no, Quaker Instant Oats does not fit in this category!), avocado, and blueberries. Click on the link to learn about all 10 foods and why they are so important for your health!
By the way, if your first thought when you saw avocado on this list was, “Yum! Guacamole!,” but then gave it a second thought because too much of it is not so good for you, let me share a tip. Make your guacamole with half avocado and half shelled green peas, which makes it richer in healthy proteins and cuts down the fat! Click here for one recipe to try.
