Who eats the best diet? Chances are that your nutritionist is a solid candidate for the healthiest eater because nutrition experts tend to have one of the most nutritious diets. The question is, what exactly does he or she eat every day?
Check out some of the healthiest foods that nutritionists eat – and recommend eating – every day:
Despite the bad reputation that avocado occasionally gets for being fatty, it’s actually really good for you and offers a ton of benefits. Avocado does contain fat, but it’s a good kind: monounsaturated. Further, this unique, flavorful fruit provides your body with nutrients that:
- Keep you feeling full
- Boost your metabolism
- Improve your blood pressure and cholesterol
- Enhance your brain
- Keep you regular
- Offer anti-oxidants that prevent diseases like cancer
With so many benefits, it’s no surprise that nutrition experts keep avocados handy and incorporate them into their diet as a snack or a part of a meal.
You probably know that soup is supposed to be great for your body when you are sick. The ingredient in soup with the most healing power is the broth. Low calorie and yet packed with nutrients, broth (especially chicken broth) is a great way to help support your immune system and consume nutrients without all of the fat or density of solid food.
Some people drink broth by itself as a healthy component of their diet. Others find ways to use in meal planning as a more subtle secret-health weapon.
It’s true: an apple a day can help keep the doctor away. That’s why many nutrition experts eat apples regularly. One of the most popular “superfoods,” apples help the body by:
- Fighting and prevent a number of diseases
- Maintaining digestive health and consequently preventing gallstones and other related issues
- Reducing cholesterol
- Improving dental health
Apples are commonly enjoyed by healthy eaters as daily snacks. The fruit can also be added to most meals of the day seamlessly.
Although most people simply associate beans with flatulence, they are actually considered a superfood just like apples are. Small and easily overlooked as a simple side dish, beans are staples in many cultures because of all of the nutrients inside that seriously improve health.
Full of potassium, folate, calcium, and different forms of vitamin B, beans provide the protein you need and many other nutrients to boot. Generally not enjoyed as a breakfast food, beans are often incorporated into lunch or dinner by those with the healthiest diets.
A well-balanced diet, which nutrition experts promote- does contain some carbohydrates. The trick to maintaining a healthy weight and physical person through eating well is simply to choose the right carbs and portions.
Oats are a carbohydrate, but unlike many highly processed carbs, they keep you feeling full and provide you with energy that doesn’t just burn right off. Plus, oats are fiber-rich.
Local honey specifically has nutrients gleaned from pollen in your area, which means that it is tailor-made to fight off infections and germs found in your region. By eating local honey, you help to ensure that you don’t get sick with whatever everyone else around you seems to have. Honey also helps to prevent your seasonal allergies.
Further, honey will offer you important, everyday nutrients like calcium, iron, and magnesium. You can also use the sweet, natural treat as a salve that soothes the throat and the insides, including the digestive tract.
Pour some honey over your oatmeal for a nutritious breakfast or dip your apple in it for a nutritionist-worthy snack.
Any time you can get protein and other essential nutrients without eating a dense, fatty, meat-loaded meals, do it. That’s what nutritionists tend to aim for, too. Nuts come in handy here.
Of the many varieties of nuts available, choose these types that offer the best nutrients:
- Brazil nuts
Pack nuts like these as snacks for while you are on the go. Learn to add them to different recipes as well because nuts tend to enhance the flavor of many types of dishes, including dishes that aren’t packed with fatty meats and consequently need an extra bit of protein.
Much like birds, nutritionists thrive on seeds. You can too! Choose to start incorporating healthy, super powerful seeds into your diet, like:
- Sesame seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Chia seeds
- Hemp seeds
Complete with nutrients like vital fatty acids, protein, and more, seeds are perfect for munching on daily to ensure that the body is getting the best nutrients that you can provide. Although not as commonly found in the ingredient list for your main course, seeds make for a great snack and even a delicious topping for salad, ice cream, and more.
