Make Good Food Choices Daily to Enjoy Good Health
Knowing how to choose foods for your best health every day can be rather confusing!
Did you hear–eggs are bad for you! Wait, now they’re good for you! Sound familiar? With all the reports in the news day to day and week to week, figuring out what to eat if you want to eat healthy can be challenging. Some foods are good for you, but aren’t necessarily great to eat daily. Balance is key when it comes to your diet, so let’s look at some of the great foods that you can eat every day as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Add it to your breakfast, use it as a dessert – there are plenty of ways you can get some yogurt into your diet every day. Like anything, it’s important not to eat too much of it, as excessive dairy products can cause constipation, bloating and skin problems in some people. A small portion of probiotic yogurt every day can help your gut and stomach to stay healthier.
Spinach is full of iron and other nutrients, and it’s safe to eat every day. You can eat spinach raw in salads, add it to your smoothies with different fruits, or steam it and add to your dinner as a side..
Berries are often labeled as superfoods–that’s gotta be good, right? 🙂 Since there are so many different kinds of berries, it’s easy to find ones to fit easily into your diet. You can experiment with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, using them as snacks throughout the day, breakfast foods in a smoothie or with yogurt, or even as a healthy dessert in the evening.
Unless you’re allergic to nuts, a small handful of them every day can help to boost your overall wellbeing. Almonds, walnuts and peanuts are some of the most common nuts, and are full of goodness. Nuts are a great option for vegans who sometimes struggle otherwise to get good fats in their diet. Nuts–in moderation- can help you to lose weight, maintain a healthy weight, and lower your risk of heart disease.
Some people avoid this as it is high in calories compared to other fruits. However, half an avocado a day will help you feel fuller longer as it’s a great source of fiber. Always wash avocados before cutting into them or peeling them. This fruit has plenty of Vitamin K, which helps to promote better bone health.
Mushrooms are a great addition to any healthful diet. There are a wide variety of options to choose offering different health benefits as well as different flavors. Generally speaking, they offer anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Mushrooms taste great on salads or in sauces and soups. If you are not a fan of the flavor, you might consider a daily supplement.
