At Thrive Fitness, one of our favorite things to talk about is food. When you fuel your body right, you will get results you didn’t think possible. Nature has ingredients that can help you on your journey to get stronger and healthier.

In our last blog, we examined Brazil nuts and sweet potatoes, noting the nutritional benefits they bring to your fitness and personal training routine. Today, we are going to introduce two more amazing foods for people pursuing wellness.

Tomatoes

Most of us know that tomatoes are full of vitamin C, but their benefits don’t end there! Their red color is caused by the antioxidant lycopene, which helps prevent prostate cancer. They have also been connected to the body’s weight loss hormones – natural chemicals that regulate appetite and metabolic rate.

Bananas

Bananas are fantastic before or after a workout, because they provide carbs and potassium. That means eating a banana fuels your muscles and prevents cramping. If you are going to make a smoothie, we recommend you include the peel, which offers more potassium, serotonin, and lutein. The last two ingredients can boost your mood and protect your vision. There is nothing not to like here!
