Wellness Wednesday: 7 Foods for a Flat Belly

With so many diets out there it’s hard to pin-point which one is right for you. One thing remains consistent: we all want a flat belly.

Here are seven foods for a flat belly.

Eggs

Simple, I know. But eggs are a food that should be a staple in your everyday diet, and here’s why.

Firstly, in one large-sized egg, you will find around 7 grams of protein, with 6 grams of fat and minimal carbohydrates.

Not only does an egg contain a lot of protein, but it also contains high-quality protein.

This is measured by the different types of amino-acid chains found in the protein source.

Sweet Potatoes

If you’re looking for a healthy carbohydrate source, look no further than the sweet potato.

In just one potato, it contains 400% of your daily recommended vitamin A, making it very nutrient-dense whilst containing fewer calories than a regular, white potato.

Spinach / Kale

Yes, these leafy greens should be a staple of your healthy diet.

I know it is not something that many look forward to eating or would like to eat every day.

But the health benefits are amazing!

So, if you can find a way to fit them in, you definitely should.

Chia Seeds

Packed with fiber, these healthy little seeds should become part of your everyday diet.

Their fiber content will make sure your digestive tract will run smoothly and will also increase your satiety when you consume them.

However, despite containing all this fiber, it’s the antioxidant qualities of chia seeds that is what makes this healthy food popular and recommended by experts.

These antioxidants fight molecules that damage your cells and increase your risk of cancer as well as also helping with anti-aging.

Almonds

Many are aware they should eat nuts for a healthy, balanced diet.

However, they are unsure which ones they should eat, and the quantities in which they should eat them.

By far the best nut to consume for a healthy diet are almonds.

Berries

Berries are very good for you, and not only because they’re one of your five a day.

They are high in antioxidants and help to fight chronic diseases.

Not to mention the fact that, unlike some of the above healthy foods, these are very tasty and appealing to the palate.

Oats

This basic breakfast has become a staple in the diets of fitness fanatics.

Plain and simple, yet packed with health benefits.

This carbohydrate source is possibly the healthiest grain on the planet.

I’m going to incorporate more of these in my diet in hopes to get a flatter stomach!
