Training Tuesday... The Incredible Edible Foods

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Another Tuesday for everything healthy and exercise, but this week I am focusing my efforts on all things food… I like my friend Jenn, don’t eat to live, I live to eat—sad, but true! I was browsing the newest issue of Real Simple magazine when I stumbled upon the article “The 30 Healthiest Foods” and I was instantly curious about just how super these foods when included in our diets: {and being somewhat of a picky eater, I was surprised at how many of these I actually do enjoy!}

11. Blueberries
12. Bulgur
13. Eggs

14. Sardines

  1. Yummy! Everything sounds delicious! Now that I'm doing WW and I have been eating more naturally, I don't even want to go back to the junk. I am really on an anti artificial sweeteners kick right now (not that I ever ate them) but want to get the word out that people need to eat more wholesome! Love this!

  2. I have been doing good to avoid junk and I luckily eat most of those yummy foods!

  3. Yay I eat a lot of those foods! I just had unsweetened yoghurt with sliced banana and a handful of walnuts today for breakfast :D

  4. Phewwww, what a relief to find out i eat most of these, and actually enjoy them! :)

  5. We incorporate a lot of that into our diets but I didn't see anything about chocolate cake...I swear that was on the list!!

  6. i cooked mushrooms for the first time last night, loved them. i actually really like a lot of the foods on this list! i just need to incorporate more of them into my meals!
    i don't think i can cut sweets out but i can at least attempt to get more of the "good stuff" into my diet.

  7. There are a lot of great foods on that list. I live to eat too and have already broken my New Years resolution... dumb sweet tooth. xo

  8. Great list! These aren't in any sort of worst to best order are they? :)

  9. I haven't heard of some of these foods, but I do love some of the ones I have heard of! Greek yogurt, EVOO, avocados, and lots of the other fruits and veggies are my faves! And I am just like you--living to eat!

  10. Yum! It's only 8 in the morning but I'm already trying to figure out how to use these ingredients for dinner tonight!
