Power Up Your Diet

It can be tiring being a mom. That’s why it’s essential to make sure that the foods we eat pack the biggest nutritional punch possible. Eating right just makes you feel better and gives you a natural energy boost. Here’s a look at nine of the biggest nutritional heavy eaters and why you should include them in your family’s diet.

Blueberries

A Harvard University study found that eating blueberries can delay cognitive decline. They are rich in the flavonoid anthocyanidins, which crosses the blood-brain barrier and enhances the areas of learning and memory. Flavonoids also act as a powerful antioxidant and have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce stress and disease. If you needed another excuse to increase your blueberry intake, these little berries can also reduce your appetite and help you lose weight.
