My Thoughts:

Eating healthy is such a difficult thing to do when we hardly have time in our lives to go grocery shopping or to experiment with recipes. However, I didn’t know that there were so many power foods that are so simple to prepare that could add a daily boost to my energy and immune system. Foods such as oatmeal and Greek yogurt are both delicious, but also easy to make. Instead of snacking on processed snacks, I’ll try picking up some edamame or putting spinach in a fruit smoothie. Even more surprising is that dark chocolate is on the list! Of course, I don’t plan on replacing my fruits and veggies with chocolate, but at least I’ll know I’m consuming healthy antioxidants when I eat dark chocolate. These foods don’t have to be boring—if you can spare several minutes out of your day, you could make a meal that is both delicious and healthy.

My Thoughts,

I knew the majority of these healthy foods, but I did learn a few new fruits that I did not know went under the healthy catagory. Lychee, asian Pears, and figs are considered to be ridiculously healthy and I'm going to have to give these a try. If only more people were to slowly change their eatting habits and incorporate these foods in their daily lifestyle then everyone will be a winner.

I've always been interested on which base foods I could use to mix with others in order to make a tasty meal. I usually don't eat straight healthy foods by themselves; I like to mix them. But I didn't know which are healthy choices to mix before reading this article. After reading this article, I've began incorporating eggs into my diet. I used to only eat them by themselves, but now have been making healthy omlettes with other healthy ingredients, which makes eggs more fun to eat. They're healthier than I originally thought they were; they provide cancer-fighting antioxidants and have a lot of protein. I also started buying Greek yogurt. Before, I had used yoplait because of its variety of tastes but Greek yogurt has twice the protein of regular yogurt. Salmon is another healthy source of vitamin D and the best omega-3s you can find. Because salmon is the best in Seattle, I decided to try our state's local favorite while keeping healthy. At restaurants, I order salmon versus the deep-fried fish sticks.

My Thoughts:

We all admit to skipping breakfast at some time in our life. Sometimes breakfast is the last thing on our mind—no one wants to spend the time in the morning cooking an extravagant meal. Instead, most of us choose to skip breakfast or find something quick and easy to prepare, but these are often unhealthy choices. Coffee is hardly a meal—it doesn’t contain the proteins or carbohydrates needed to boost your metabolism in preparation for the long day ahead. The other choice, grabbing something from the pantry, is also a bad idea because you will only get whatever may be readily available, whether it is healthy or not. I admit to snacking on chips in the morning because it was the only thing I could grab on the way out of the house. By waking up five minutes earlier to make a home-cooked breakfast, I’ve been noticing that my ability to pay attention in class and absorb information has increased significantly. A healthy breakfast is truly the key to having a good day as well as increasing your health and mood.

How to choose a healthy diet without consulting a nutritionist - Just for Hearts

Depending upon your specific condition which diet are right for you called a healthy diet. A healthy diet for an athlete must not be the same as for a housewife.

My Thoughts:

Not only is it important to eat healthy, but it’s important to eat the right balance of healthy foods. If someone only ate omega-3-rich fish, of course they’d be getting their fatty acids. However, they wouldn’t be reaping the benefits of antioxidants they could have gotten from blueberries or spinach. They wouldn’t have received a healthy level of calcium for bone strength, or found a source of proteins, iron, or zinc. I make sure that my diet consists of all the food groups in order to maintain a healthy intake of all the vitamins and minerals my body needs. Creating a grocery list helps tremendously in that I’m not constantly wondering what to buy while I’m shopping. Often, that leads to buying less than what I need. Eating healthy may be a small effort, but it is worth it in the end to have a strong body.
