If you’ve recently resolved to change your eating habits for the better, this Huffington Post piece will likely serve as a useful healthy eating guide. It details six different foods that are nutritious, filling and tasty. First up is red bell peppers. While we typically think of citrus fruits like oranges and lemons as the best natural source of vitamin C, red bell peppers contain twice the daily recommended intake of that immune optimizing and skin smoothing nutrient. Red bell peppers can also be used to make everything from a sautéd entrée to a salad extra flavorful.
Another underrated healthy food that should become one of your new dietary staples as oatmeal. In addition to serving as a hearty and versatile breakfast option, oatmeal is full of soluble fiber that takes much longer to digest than a sugary and carbohydrate heavy cereal. It’s also renowned for its cholesterol balancing qualities. And if you want to replace unhealthy snacks like chips and processed meats with something flavorful and delicious, consider adding dates to your rotation. The fiber, potassium, and vitamin A packed fruits are great as a stand alone snack or as part of a delectable fruit smoothie.
