FOOD 101: Everyday Nutritious Foods

Here’s great advice about what you should be eating: what nutritionists eat. The original article, from Redbook magazine, was published on Yahoo.

  • Dark berries, especially blueberries (high in antioxidants, low in calories)
  • Almond milk (high in the antioxidant vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol)
  • Cinnamon (a “superspice,” 1/s teaspoon of cassia cinnamon daily can help regulate blood sugar [a drop in blood sugar creates feelings of hunger] and may lower blood sugar, which causes diabetes)
  • Avocados (an anti-inflammatory; the high calories are from heart-healthy avocado oil)
  • Greek yogurt (straining removes much of the whey and lactose [milk sugar], providing double the protein and half the sugar content for roughly the same calories))
  •

  • Eggs (inexpensive protein with 13 vitamins and minerals and the anti-inflammatory nutrient choline; the cholesterol scare of the past is now being modified)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (heart healthy monounsaturated fat, packed with antioxidants)
  • Hummus (portable, high in fiber, protein and healthy fat from the olive oil)
  • Nuts, especially almonds and walnuts (fiber-rich, the fat is monounsaturated (heart healthy), protein, antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins and minerals (see the health benefits of nuts)
  • Kale (the “queen of greens” packed with calcium and the antioxidant vitamins A, C and K—snack on kale chips made by tearing kale into pieces, coating with a little olive oil and baking at 375°F for 10 to 15 minutes)
  • Water with lemon (hydration with the antioxidant vitamin C—a good way to start the day)
  • Quinoa (the supergrain that’s a complete protein [more protein than milk] plus fiber and omega 3s)
  •
