9 Foods YOU should eat every day!



Eating healthy doesn’t have to be difficult.  Just knowing what foods to eat instead of unhealthy ones can jump start your diet and to feel good and feel full.  Here are 9 foods that I think you should eat every day!

Oatmeal is a quick and easy breakfast or snack. It has protein, carbs and fiber and is simple to make and is also inexpensive.  Add some berries or other fruit sources for variety and an even healthier fare.

Apples are quick and easy when you wash and go.   They’re a great source of fiber, inexpensive, loaded with nutrients.

Yogurt has calcium for our bones, as well as being a good source of carbs and protein. It’s filling and versatile to add to a variety of meals.

Berries are perfect to add to yogurt, oatmeal, cereal or eaten alone. Their packed with antioxidants and just need a thorough rinsing to be ready to eat.

Spinach is a super food that’s loaded with minerals, vitamins A and C, fiber, and antioxidants. Have it as a salad or top a sandwich with it for added health benefits.

Beans are a great source of fiber and protein. Add to brown rice makes for a complete low-cost vegetarian protein source.

When water gets boring, it’s tea to the rescue. It’s loaded with antioxidants, calorie-free and can be enjoyed anywhere. Just watch the amount of sugar you add.

Nuts have heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, and studies have shown nuts help to prevent heart disease and cancer. Grabbing a handful of nuts is a great way to snack on the go.

Shakeology is quick and easy and great on the go.  Ready with a full days’ worth of your vegetable servings.
