Happy Father’s Day to our first heroes and role models - Dad.
Our dads are pillars of the family, always busy and working around the clock to support us. While embracing such a demanding role, they tend to take their health for granted. Here are some excellent food ideas to keep your dad at the top of his health:
Oatmeal falls under the category of high-fibre and low glycaemic index food type, that provides endurance to keep up with the active kids of today.
Helps strengthen the heart and keeps you going a long way with your family. Fish such as salmon, lake trout, herring, sardines and tuna contain large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids that help lower blood pressure and support heart health.
3.Green Leafy Veggies
Green leafy vegetables like asparagus and spinach contain high amounts of folate or folic acid, which studies have associated with helping in reducing anxiety and improving the mood. Folate is also found in many other foods, including almonds, dairy and fortified whole-grain breakfast foods.
Carrots contain beta-carotene, which is important for vision. But it's not the only food that's good for your eyes. According to the National Eye Institute, a wide range of other foods can also help protect your sight, such as spinach, kale, collard greens, and other dark leafy greens, as well as fish that’s high in omega-3 fatty acids.
Nuts are a good source of protein and essential fatty acids. Consuming a handful of mixed nuts helps combat chronic disease while aging.
It would be a great time to get a jump start on eating and living healthier so you can be there for the people who love you. You're already a super dad — make sure you're doing everything you can to be super-healthy as well.
