1 | 6   Clear complexion: For the healthiest most radiant skin, start from the inside. Fatty fish like salmon or mackerel have omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight inflammation in the body. The anti-inflammatory abilities of omega-3s translate to younger, glowing skin. In addition to chowing down on foods high in omega-3s, be sure to eat your veggies and drink plenty of water for a fresh, clear complexion.
2 | 6   Weight loss: While there are plenty of foods that help aid weight loss, eggs come in at the top of the list. Eggs are great if you’re looking to lose weight because they’re high in healthy fats, protein and will make you feel full and satisfied with a low number of calories. Eggs are nutrient dense too – just don’t skip the yolk!
3 | 6   Energy: If you crave a pick-me-up to help get you through your day, try incorporating a banana with a tablespoon of nut butter into your diet. Filled with potassium, bananas are a good carbohydrate that are loaded with vitamin B6; the key ingredient to help you feel energized. The nut butter will introduce some healthy fat, which will help reduce an energy crash – this classic snack combo is a far better choice than a caffeinated drink.
4 | 6   Mental health: There’s an important connection between nutrition and mental health. Eating for mental health is simple – you want to ditch the processed food in favour of whole, real foods. That being said, leafy greens are particularly great for your brain! Spinach, kale, collard greens and broccoli are all high in potassium, folate and have a lot of fibre. These are great for your gut too – which is known to be linked to the mind.
5 | 6   Luscious hair: Nuts are high in protein and zinc, which help promote healthy hair. Walnuts in particular are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which make your hair strong and shiny.
6 | 6   Eyesight: Orange coloured fruits and veggies such as carrots, sweet potatoes and oranges are high in beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is a form of vitamin A, which helps with your vision and your eyes’ ability to adjust to darkness. Be sure to incorporate the colour orange into your diet and your peepers will thank you!

There are a few little things that you can do that will greatly improve your health.
