A nutritious diet is essential to maintaining the health of your body and mind. Different foods offer different benefits and affect the body in different ways. What one food may lack, another food may have, which is why it’s important to eat a variety of foods weekly.
You should always eat breakfast, lunch and dinner with a few small snacks in between. Start your morning with an egg omelet. “Eggs are full of nutrients, including eye-helping lutein and zeaxanthin and vitamin D, which is helpful for bones, Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in Jersey City, NJ, says.
Next time you go food shopping, before you make your list, consider the vitamins and minerals your body needs – vitamin D, vitamin C, and magnesium, to name a few. Then decide on which foods you will purchase. For instance, eggs contain vitamin D, grapefruit contains vitamin C, and spinach contains magnesium.
