Tofu

  • An excellent food from a nutritional and health perspective. Tofu is considered to be a “complete food” because it contains all essential amino acids for protein synthesis.

  • Tofu is known to be high in calcium. In fact, a 4oz serving of tofu contains about as much calcium as a full 8oz glass of cow’s milk.

  • It contains no saturated fat. Saturated fat is one of the worst kinds of fat and can contribute to heart disease, hypertension, and other diseases.

  • Contains a good amount of iron, copper, and manganese. These nutrients work to help the body absorb each other and all three are essential for a healthy diet but can also help boost energy.

Peanuts

  • Peanuts sometimes get a bad rap because of their high fat content. However, the types of fats in peanuts are actually the heart-healthy variety, predominantly monounsaturated fats, which have been associated with lower cardiovascular risk. Getting plenty of monounsaturated fats in your diet promotes the artery-clearing process that keeps your blood flowing well and lowers your risk of heart attack or stroke.

  • Peanuts have more protein than any nut (7g per serving), containing more than 30 essential vitamins and minerals, and are a good source of fibre.

Kale

  • All hale the kale! It is definitely one of the healthiest and most nutritious plant foods in existence.

  • Kale contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat is an omega-3 fatty acid essential for brain health called alpha linolenic-acid (ALA).

  • As for minerals, kale contains most of the everyday minerals we need, including potassium, which supports effective heart function; calcium, for strong bones and teeth; magnesium, for good hormone health, and selenium, which supports the immune system.
