There’s so much information about what you should and shouldn’t be eating when living a healthy lifestyle that it’s easy to get lost! We want to make it simpler for you, which is why we’ve found the top 5 foods that are surprisingly healthy for you.

Dark Chocolate:

If you’re eating chocolate that contains over 70% cocoa, consider it as healthy! As it’s high in antioxidants, fibre and vitamins and minerals, dark chocolate has a number of health benefits for you.

Popcorn:

Unfortunately, it’s not the same cinema popcorn that’s drowned in butter… but air-popped popcorn is high in fibre and contains multiple vitamins and minerals!

Avocado:

It’s often misunderstood that avocados are actually healthy for you. Although they are high in fat, it is ‘heart-healthy’ fat that is rich in nutrients containing up to 20 vitamins and minerals. It’s important to consume with moderation!

Potatoes:

If you minimise the toppings, potatoes on their own provide are a nutritious, inexpensive food that offers strong sources of potassium and fibre.

Coffee:

You’ll be pleased to know, a coffee a day has been linked to a longer lifespan! It is high in antioxidants that protect you against a variety of diseases and can help prevent diabetes and strokes.

So next time you want a snack that’s healthy, be sure to consider one of the above. Just remember… it’s all about BALANCE!
