Healthy Food You Should Be EatingIt is not always easy to eat healthy. There are a lot of unhealthy options grabbing for your attention at every turn. The obesity rate in adults and children is consistently on the rise. Dr. Phil Pinsker, foot specialist in Washington, PA sees the affect that extra weight has on feet and ankles on a regular basis. It is more important than ever to educate on the importance of eating right.

If you are going to start making better choices, why not choose foods that pack the most punch? You need to choose foods that have the vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are going to help you function at your best. Here are some great super foods:

Broccoli

It may not be the easiest food to convince kids to eat but this super veggie is rich in fiber and can help lower cholesterol and the risk of cancer.

Tomatoes

This juicy red food is packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants and also has cancer-fighting properties.

Salmon

It is a fish that fights for life and can bring more fight to your life as well. It helps reduce cholesterol, high blood pressure and the risk of cardiovascular disease. Studies have also shown it to protect against Alzheimer’s.

Berries

Who doesn’t love berries? This yummy snack is low in calorie and full of fiber and antioxidants that ward against cancer. Berries have also been shown to decrease the risk of heart attacks.

Sweet potatoes

They are not just for Thanksgiving! They are rich in fiber and can help regulate blood sugar if you have type 2 diabetes. The beta-carotene inside a sweet potato also helps your vision.

If some extra weight has taken a toll on your feet and ankles, make an appointment to see Dr. Pinsker. With the right tools and treatment, you get back on track with being healthier and without foot pain! Call our podiatric office at (724) 225-7410.
