“We consume way more protein than our bodies need and get less than half the vegetables and fruits we should,” says Marissa Lippert, a registered dietitian and the author of The Cheater’s Diet.

So what should you be eating and buying???

Real Simple put together a list of the 30 Healthiest Foods.

  • Mushrooms
  • Barley
  • Walnuts
  • All-Natural butters
  • Avocados
  • Quinoa
  • Almonds
  • Blueberries
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Eggs
  • Chicken breast
  • Wild Salmon

I’m not in total agreement on their list, but if you ate according to it, you would probably notice a huge change in your taste buds and appetite.  Eating a clean, unprocessed diet makes me feel SO much better on many levels.

    What don’t you agree with???

  • I’m referring not to what a label would say about these foods, but how the body handles them.

    Nuts and butters are difficult to digest. While they are “healthy” I think there are better options for protein.

    On paper mushrooms are great because they have zero calories and happen to be delicious. However, I have met nutritionists who also don’t recommend mushrooms because they’re a fungus and aren’t good for the bacteria our tracts. These particular women are extremists in my opinion, but they make valid points.

    Some people believe that whole milk is better for you than skim because it’s less processed which again makes it easier on your body. I’ve made the switch. I honestly can’t tell the difference with the exception that whole milk tastes SO MUCH better!

    At the end of the day, you eat what make you feel good.
