Trivia Summer Foods

  1. Potatoes

    This starch gets a bad rap, in part because it’s so easy to fatten up with oil, cheese, or creamy sauces. But baked at home, the humble potato is actually nutritious. According to Cooking Light, one 160-calorie medium potato is one of the best sources of heart-healthy potassium and fiber. Just go easy on the toppings.
    Celery

    Celery boasts a surprising array of good-for-you nutrients, including anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe your digestive tract, disease-fighting antioxidants, and vitamins such as folate, vitamin K, and vitamin C. Crunch on that next time you swirl it around your Bloody Mary or use as a vessel for French onion dip.
    Sunflower seeds

    Nuts are a healthy snack favorite among nutritionists and other health experts. But don’t forget the sunflower seeds. According to the Please or Register to view links, they’re a terrific source of vitamin E—a quarter cup provides more than 90 percent of your daily need. They also offer a healthy dose of such key minerals as manganese, magnesium, and selenium.
    Sauerkraut

    Go ahead, pile it on that hot dog. Fermented foods like sauerkraut are a unique source of probiotics, which help maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut. “These healthy microbes help with digestion and nutrient absorption,” writes Darya Pino Rose, PhD, in her new book Foodist. “Without them our gut health deteriorates substantially, setting the stage for many chronic diseases.” Many new studies are fingering gut bacteria as a key player in many health conditions, from obesity to allergies.
    Mushrooms

    Please or Register to view links notes that mushrooms are the only vegetable source of vitamin D; and “many compounds have been identified in mushrooms that show potential for boosting immunity and possibly protecting against cancer,” says Pino Rose in Foodist.
