Foods for spring to help you feel fresh
Rather than worry about what you should eliminate from your diet this spring, focus on nutrient-rich foods that contain Ubiquinol to boost your energy levels and immunity.
Pistachios, peanuts and sesame seeds contain ubiquinol, plus they’re extra healthy for you. Add to salads, make your own crackers, or top your breakfast muesli or yoghurt with these to ensure you’re adding as much Ubiquinol-rich foods as possible to your diet. Plus, they’re a great snack to have to hand for when you’re hungry.
Meat has the highest levels of ubiquinol of all foods. Load up your spring barbeques with meat, poultry and fish, and choose organic where possible.
’Ave an avocado
Use this wonderfully versatile and Ubiquinol-rich foods in different, but healthy ways. Substitute it for butter and use it on bread, topped with chicken and salad for a tasty and nutritious lunch. It’s also ideal for salads, or as a side to poached eggs. The limit is only your imagination!
Love your greens
Broccoli contains Ubiquinol, although you’ll need a good serving in order to substantially increase your levels. A good way to do so is through antioxidant-heavy broccoli soup or serve as a side to your Ubiquinol-rich meat portion.
Citrus fruits are a good source of antioxidants, so add oranges or strawberries to your breakfasts or even salads.
Fish are one of the best sources of Ubiquinol, so aim for at least three servings of seafood a week for overall good health. Trout and herring are particularly good sources, so why not try some new recipes for your spring menu.
Don’t forget herbs
While the addition of some herbs may hold minimal Ubiquinol benefits, every little helps. Parsley and sorrel herbs can be sprinkled onto salads or used in marinades for your meat or dressing.
While you can absorb Ubiquinol through the foods you eat, you’ll need to eat large portions to match the levels you’ll gain from a daily supplement. Taking a supplement is an efficient way to help restore healthy levels of Ubiquinol in the body and support optimal energy levels, and help to reduce levels of oxidative stress.
