I do my best to ensure my diet is full of variety and bursting with colour and flavour. However, I am also a creature of habit!
Here are 5 healthy foods that I include in my meals pretty much every single day – because they make everything yummier and more nutritious!
- Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are truly nature’s little powerhouses! They are a fabulous source of fibre, plant-based protein and essential fatty acids. I add them to my morning smoothie or use them as the base for my chia pudding= yum!
Creamy, satiating and delicious; avocado is definitely a staple in my diet. I add it to my salads, enjoy it with eggs or use it to make guacamole.
The nutritionist in me is coming out here but I truly do love greens. Kale, spinach, silverbeet, rocket, broccoli, the list in endless. I add a big serving to both my lunch and dinner.
- Almonds/Almond Butter
We all know I love my almond butter; I even take a little jar away with me when travelling. Almonds and almond butter are rich in monounsaturated fats, fibre, protein and also contain potassium, calcium and magnesium! When purchasing, look for brands that contain just almonds and maybe a touch of salt.
The humble banana! Bananas sometimes get a bad rap but they are are so versatile, nutritious and accessible. I have banana in my smoothies, on top of porridge, in my pancake batter or I use it in baked goods.
