divided_plte_new_5

When I first started working out and taking it seriously, the hardest part for me was incorporating a healthier diet. I didn’t know what to eat, and felt very limited in my options. Over the years, I came up with a go to list of healthy foods.

I like to break it down to three sections protein, good carbs, and veggies and try to incorporate one of each in every meal.

Proteins:

  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Ground turkey
  • Eggs
  • Hummus
  • Nuts
  • Oats
  • Cottage cheese
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Beans
  • Tuna
  • Steak
  • Quinoa

Good Carbs:

  • Corn
  • Sweet Potato
  • Brown Rice
  • Avocado
  • Beans
  • Lentils
  • Peas
  • Oatmeal
  • Pumpkin
  • Whole grain bread

Veggies:

  • Broccoli
  • Asparagus
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cauliflower
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Cabbage
  • Carrots
