3 Foods I Eat EVERYDAY and WHY!
I get asked this question a lot. There are so many foods that I LOVE but I narrowed my list down to a critical 3 plus a bonus that I just can't live without!
Homemade Protein Balls:
Protein balls are easy to pre-make, take on the go, don't melt in the car, and pack a punch on calories and protein. 1 ball can have as much as 150 calories and 10g of protein! That is just amazing!
Spinach is packed with iron and as a pescatarian who is allergic to legumes I struggle with getting enough iron. The other benefit of eating a bag of spinach a day is that I get plenty of calcium, magnesium and fiber!
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants which help protect cells from free radicals. Blueberries seem to also help prevent cognitive decline and help me maintain youthful skin!
Sunflower seeds protein a vital source of protein for this mostly non-meat eater. Seeds also provide anti-inflammatory response which is very helpful to exercise recovery.
So how do I eat all these foods each day? Simple!
Protein Ball for breakfast
Spinach/Berry Smoothie for Lunch
Salad with Sunflower Seeds for Dinner!
I think of food as a way to heal the body and it has changed how I eat immensely. By no means am I perfect but I do make informed choices about where my food is sourced, what is going to do and why I am eating it.
