Magnificent Magnesium: The Best Food for Magnesium Intake

A very happy Saturday to you all!  The sun is shining and we’re mid packing but I’m taking a short break to write up my daily blog post and enjoy a cup of coffee.  Whilst NYC is flippin’ hot during the Summer, the sun shines almost every day in this wonderful city and I think that is so important for general wellbeing and positivity (mine is definitely good today:).

I’m writing this post about Magnesium and why it’s important to eat sources of it for our health.  It’s very popular reading in food and nutrition news and I saw this article on rebootwithjoe.com yesterday about why we should be including this crucial nutrient in our regular diet.  Do take a look at the link because it’s really helpful reading.

What I really like about the sources of Magnesium is that many, many of them are plant-based ones which is great for those of us who eat a mainly plant-based diet (or are switching to less meat).

Here’s a quick list of some of the best ways to take in Magnesium:

  • Leafy vegetables such spinach
  • Other veggies rich in Magnesium include tomatoes, artichokes & sweet potatoes
  • Legumes such as black beans 
  • Bananas
  • Buckwheat flour, oats, barley & cornmeal
  • Pumpkin seeds, almonds and cashew nuts
  • Dairy products such as milk and yogurt
  • Fish such as salmon, halibut and mackerel

Have a great day! 😀
