Magnesium is one of the most important minerals in your body, but unfortunately, studies suggest about 50% of the popultation aren’t getting nearly enough magnesium in their diets.
Magnesium-rich foods include dark chocolate, yuuuummy, avocados, nuts, legumes, tofu, seeds (meh), whole grains, fatty fish, bananas and leafy greens.
Quick run down of some of my staples
Dark Chocolate- 64 mg in a 1-ounce (28 gram) serving- 16% of the RDI-also beneficial for gut health and heart health, and is loaded with antioxidants.
Avocadoes-medium avocado provides 15% of the RDI for magnesium. Avocados fight inflammation, improve cholesterol levels, increase fullness and are packed with several other nutrients.
Nuts-Cashews, almonds and Brazil nuts are high in magnesium. A single serving of cashews provides 20% of the RDI. (handful a day at most)
Leafy Greens- A 1-cup serving of cooked spinach provides 39% of the RDI.
