Foods You Should Be Eating

By Sara Butler

You’ve no doubt had someone tell you that something you’re eating is bad for you. If you took their word for it and added to your “never pass the lips” list of foods, then you may want to consider. It turns out there are quite a few foods out there that get a bad rap which are actually  great for you. Here are foods that are actually good for you that you may find surprising!

White Rice

Oh, poor white rice – it’s the white-headed stepchild of the grain world. But you can’t ignore the fact that some of the healthiest nations on earth use rice as the cornerstone of their diet. Eaten alone, white rice is a bit of a bomb for your blood sugar, but if you eat it in combination with vegetables and lean proteins, it can be a very healthy choice.

White rice is more processed than brown rice but all rice in the United States is also enriched with nutrients it loses during processing. So, it actually ends up having more essential nutrients than brown rice. So, give white rice another look!

Whole Eggs

Whole eggs got a bad reputation several years ago, which has resulted in a lot of people avoiding them at their own peril! Eggs are one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, they’ve just gotten a bad rap because of the company they keep on morning breakfast platters, such as bacon and sausage (which still woefully remain unhealthy). The truth of the matter is eggs are a great source of protein, Vitamin D, riboflavin, selenium, choline, and phosphorus. Give eggs another chance – they won’t let you down!

Coffee

Sure, it can be easy to have a little too much caffeine – and many fancy coffees are packed with extra sugar and fat. But coffee in and of itself is actually really good for you health. The flavonoids in coffee can help to protect your heart from the side effects of aging. Plus, three or four cups of coffee per day are just fine for your health, according to the National Institutes of Health. Just try to develop a taste for black coffee, since it’s the healthiest choice.

It’s worth your time and your health to dig a little deeper to discover if foods you’ve been avoiding for years are really that bad for you. Remember, nutrition is a science and like any science, it can change with time. If you need help discerning the information, discuss it with a medical professional!
