If you have a neurological injury and you have difficulty with sleeping, muscle cramps or fatigue, then this blog is for you.  Last week, I spoke about the importance of magnesium in our daily diets. 

Today I wanted to share with you some of the top magnesium-rich foods that you can incorporate into your diet.  If you are already doing this, then I want to say, great job! 

Keep up the good work. Your body will thank you  

  1. Green leafy vegetables (e.g. spinach, swiss chard and kale) 
  2. Fruit (figs, avocado, banana and raspberries)                               ▸ a. Bananas may be better known for being rich in heart-healthy and bone-strengthening potassium, but a medium-size banana also provides 32 mg of magnesium, along with vitamin C and fibre. 
  3. Nuts and seeds (with almonds and pumpkin seeds rating quite high) 
  4. Legumes (black beans, chickpeas and kidney beans)                  ▸  a. Baked beans rated high 
  5. Vegetables (peas, broccoli, cabbage, green beans, artichokes, asparagus, brussels sprouts) 
  6. Seafood (salmon, mackerel, tuna) 
  7. Whole grains (brown rice and oats) 
  8. Raw cacao 
  9. Dark Chocolate 
  10. Tofu 
  11. Chlorella powder 
  12. Spirulina powder 

How many of this list are you incorporating into your daily diet?

If this has helped you, then please know I have so much more to share in my 'Movers And Shakers' facebook group (it's free). I'd love to see you in there.
