8 Things to Eat Every Day

I was driving to work the other morning, listening to sports talk radio, and I heard the hosts talking about, of all things, nutrition. They were talking about 8 things that you should eat every day to be healthy. Sounds good. And, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m like a household pet…. I’m OK eating the same thing every day.

When I got home I googled “8 things to eat everyday” and found a number of interesting links. You can search yourself if you want to do further research. But this is the list below:

  • Spinach
  • Yogurt
  • Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Blueberries
  • Black Beans
  • Walnuts
  • Oats

As for the yogurt, soy yogurt is listed as an acceptable alternative. So, I’m looking at this list and thinking, hmmm, I could do this every day. Sort of. Maybe not every day, but most days.

But what I found most interesting is this little blurb I found on spinach:

“Protein makes up 30% of the calories from spinach and it’s high in methionine, an essential amino acid that is somewhat lacking in many plant foods. Spinach is a good addition to your diet if you should not eat a lot of soy product.”

One side note on the spinach… buy organic. The pesticide levels on spinach appear to be pretty high, at least from the reading that I’ve done online.

Happy eating.
