The Top Surprisingly Healthy Foods For Seniors

Let's face it - there are a ton of unhealthy food choices out there. Some of them, such as russet potatoes, or an overabundance of red meat, aren't as obvious as ice cream and fried food, but can be unhealthy in a variety of ways. Luckily, there are also many healthy options out there - some of them you might not expect. Here are some foods that may surprise you with their health value:

  • Sweet potatoes - We're always told to stay away from starchy foods. Yet sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins A, C, E, fiber, and Beta-carotene.
  • Oranges - Yes, fruit has a substantial amount of sugar, but oranges and orange juice pack a nutritional punch with vitamin C and potassium in a way like no other. There are juice options that are light in sugar, so choose wisely.
  • Dark chocolate - What? How did chocolate make this list? The truth is that dark chocolate that is 70% cocoa or higher is actually quite healthy. It's a great solution to high blood pressure.
  • Red wine - First, chocolate and now wine? No, this isn't a list for Valentine's Day dinner. Red wine has been known to improve HDL cholesterol as well as offering similar flavonoids as dark chocolate.
  • Black beans - These beans are good for more than just fiber. You'll find b-complex omega-3, calcium, and much more.
  • Tea - One of the world's favorite drinks, tea contains antioxidants, an immune system boost, and could even assist in weight loss efforts. There are so many various forms of tea; you will be sure to find the perfect flavor for you.
  • Cheese - Okay, we're not saying you should go and eat a ton of mozzarella sticks, but a moderate amount of cheese can contribute a hefty amount of calcium and vitamin B12 to your diet.
  • Coffee - It seems that a majority of us can't wake up without the help of our friend, the coffee bean. But besides the much-needed caffeine intake, coffee also gives us magnesium, potassium, and niacin.

Next time you're at the grocery store, don't forget to stop by the wine, chocolate, and cheese aisle. You might find the health benefits you're looking for! As always, consult a physician when adding new foods into your diet.
