Hate Eating Healthy Foods? This Post Is for You

Eating healthy can be tricky, especially when your taste buds disagree with the foods on your plate.  If this is you, then you’ve come to the right place.  Below is a list of 5 nutritious and delicious foods to try.

1. Peanut Butter

We’re kickin’ off this list with a pantry classic that no one can get enough of.  A dollop of creamy peanut butter is rich in heart-healthy fats, magnesium, vitamin E, and protein.  Make sure the peanut butter you buy has only one ingredient: peanuts.

2. Eggs

Ah, eggs.  The king of all breakfast foods.  Eggs have an impressive nutrient profile, boasting protein, healthy fats, and vitamin B12.  Serve scrambled eggs with wholegrain toast, or have a hard-boiled egg for a hearty snack.

3. Avocados

Avocados are popular for a reason.  The creamy fruit is high in fiber, healthy fats, and vitamins K and E.  Avocados make a great addition to smoothies and sandwiches.

4. Bell Peppers

Who doesn’t love a crunchy, juicy, bell pepper?  Whether eaten as a snack or diced up and added to rice bowls, bell peppers will have you drooling with every bite.  Bell peppers are a great source of vitamin C, potassium, and folate.

5. Green Beans

Eat your greens! …your green beans, that is.  Green beans are a great way to get more essential minerals like magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus on your plate.  Try canned green beans drizzled in olive oil and vinegar for a savory side dish, or incorporate canned green beans in your pasta dishes for a flavor boost.
