When it comes to diet, all we hear is ‘don’t eat this’ or ‘don’t eat that after a certain time’. With so many rules and advise flying around it’s understandable that we get confused. But more so, we end up trying to follow unsustainable rules, which leave us feeling like failures, even when we try our best.
So rather than another blog post about what you ‘shouldn’t eat’, we have compiled a list of ‘YES, let’s eat this every day’ foods. Let us know in the comments which food you love to eat regularly or even every day!
1. Lean Protein:
Lean sources of protein such as turkey, chicken breast, pork and beef (lean cuts such as we use in the Fit Food Kitchen) are thought to speed up your metabolism, and get your body to burn more fat, high five to that!
2. Tomato Sauce:
This is a big win/win, especially for you fellas, as recent studies have shown that ‘men who ate tomato sauce two to four times a week had a 35% lower risk of prostate cancer’. We love tomato sauce on a lean burger and it’s the perfect sidekick to our breakfast frittata!
We don’t need to tell you that veggies are at the top of the list when it comes to daily fuel. Especially the cruciferous vegetable group which includes cabbage, kale, brussel sprouts and our favourite, broccoli. They are all super low in calories and high in fiber and essential nutrients – what’s not to love?
We ADORE berries and love them with our chocolate protein pancakes. They are an incredibly potent source of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals, slow down aging, and reduce cancer risk.
Bananas have to be one of the easiest food to add to your daily food intake. We add them to smoothies, overnight oats, chia puddings and of course just as they are. They are high in potassium are thought to reduce risk of high blood pressure and stroke and of course, the bananas in the Canary Islands are the best!
6. High Fibre Cereal:
We love to start our day with a high fiber boost as it keeps our digestive system running well.
Choose whole-grain cereal as it digests slowly and steadies blood sugar levels for sustained energy. With a ton of B vitamins, antioxidants and trace minerals it’s a great quick breakfast choice!
To be fair, we love all the nut variations but we are crazy about pistachios and they’re bursting with omega-3s and muscle building protein. Watch your portion size as they are calorific but damn they’re good! Choose unsalted pistachios and eat chopped up over Greek yogurt, chia puddings, fresh watermelon.
