One of the most common questions nutritionists on the Vega® Team are asked is “what do you eat?” People want to know what health professionals are eating, what their favorite foods are and what are the staples they can’t live without so today we’re sharing our favorite foods.
WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU LEMONS…USE THEM!
Versatile, tart and slightly sweet, lemons are your new best friend. Add a splash of lemon to your smoothie, to hot or cold water or use the juice and zest in your favorite recipes. Lemons aren’t just for flavor though, the juice of one whole lemon has 30% DV for antioxidant Vitamin C. Find out more reasons to add a little lemon here.
MAMA SAID EAT YO GREENS
Not sure where to get more greens? Set a goal to have something green with every meal and snack you consume throughout the day. Spinach, kale and broccoli are all simple greens to add to smoothies, salads and side dishes.
BLISS OUT WITH BERRIES
Blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries; much like greens, it’s hard to choose just one. Eat them on their own, add them to a smoothie or toss them in your salads for a summertime flare. If need a new way to eat your berries, put them on a skewer. Why? Because nothing says fun like a fruit kabab.
DON’T FREAK OUT OVER FATS
Avocados, chia seeds, and hemp seeds are all sources of plant-based, unsaturated dietary fat and a few of our favorites. Fats not only adds flavor to your food but also support the body to absorb fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D and E.
Now it’s your turn. What are some foods you can’t live without?
