goodeats_logo

Admit it. We all tend to stray away from the things we “need” in our life versus all of the things we “want”. Especially when it comes to food! Some food items are just way too hard to let go of.  And then some… are just super hard to even think about intaking. Likeee:

  1. Eggs
  2. Quinoa
  3. Lentils
  4. Sardines
  5. Kale

These are the top health foods aka Superfoods everyone should be eating despite any dietary lifestyle.

Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients – nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves. (Food Matters)

Eggs | Protein and vitamin D for only 75 calories. Eat the yolks! That’s where the nutrients are. Hard boil, fry, or over easy. FYI, Omelets are bomb! Just throw in all your favorite ingredients.
