5 Foods I Eat Everyday

I eat a pretty varied diet. Lots of fruits and vegetables (the types depend on the season), different cooked grains, a variety of lentils and beans, among many other things.

But there are some foods I eat all the time. These are my staples. My favorites. My go-to’s when I’m not feeling creative. The things that keep me healthy over the years. I simply couldn’t live without these foods!

5 Foods I Eat Everyday

Yogurt. Usually it’s plain, either topped with fruit, added to a smoothie, or generously dolloped on a savory dish. But I like flavored yogurts on occasion too (like this blood orange one with chia -YUM). I really believe that yogurt promotes good digestion and helps boost immunity.

Salad. Hands down my favorite meal. Partly because I LOVE the taste and partly because I love the way I feel after eating it (satisfied but never overly full). There isn’t a salad I don’t like!

Nuts. And nut butter. (That counts as one, right?). I eat both everyday. So satisfying, easy to take on the go and the perfect accompaniment to bread (see below). Raw, toasted, roasted – any type of nut will do. Currently crushing on Justin’s Maple Almond Butter.

Bread. I usually buy 100% whole wheat, but oh how I love a good chewy baguette, too. To avoid overindulging, I aim to eat bread at just one meal per day.

healthiest foods

Fruit. I eat at least a few fruits everyday. My favorites are nectarines, cherries and cantaloupe. But right now I can’t get enough apples and pears. So many to choose from and they’re all so good!

What foods do you eat everyday? Are any of these on your list?

    I eat all of the above every day as well! I would add coffee too, does that count as a food?!

      I am 100% with you on coffee! It’s a given for me. I didn’t include it here only because it’s a drink. But totally essential 😉

    Our list is similar! I always eat yogurt, fruit, veggies/salad, and tea/coffee every day. How’s the yogurt with chia seeds in it? I’ve been curious to try it out!

      I love the new Stonyfield Greek with chia, partly because the Blood Orange flavor is just so delicious!

    I love that you enjoy good bread every day. So many people are afraid of it anymore.
    I looked at those Justin’s nut butters last week at the market – they look so good. I may just try them now based on your recommendation here!

    Love this post! I think your readers probably have a good idea about your go-tos, but it’s great to see a “list” like this. I’m happy to say that these are all my faves also…plus a daily cookie 🙂
