We’ve all seen those articles before….
“10 Foods Dietitians SWEAR they NEVER eat”
*insert eye roll*
And then the article goes on to list off 10 foods that dietitians all over the world eat every single day…. sigh.
As an anti-diet dietitian, there aren’t many foods that I don’t eat, unless I just simply don’t like the taste. I am a strong believer that ALL foods can fit into a healthy diet, barring legitimate medical restrictions.
Here’s a quick list of 6 types of food that dietitians *actually* consume on a regular basis:
1. Foods we enjoy:
We all have those foods that we truly just love, and peanut butter is that food for me. I eat it *almost* every day.
Another one of those foods is avocado! I love adding it to sandwiches or wraps for added flavor and satisfaction!
2. Foods that keeps us full:
Because it’s not fun feeling hungry right after a meal! Pasta is a quick and easy meal that always satisfied me.
3. Foods that gives us energy:
Simple carbs = quick energy! I love me some bananas.
4. Foods that helps us poop:
Yep I said it hahaha but seriously… whole grains, healthy fats, and regular eating patterns throughout the day does the trick for me 😉
5. Foods that are social:
Because who doesn’t want to go out for a burger and fries with friends?!
That’s all folks! Short, sweet, + to the point! What would you add to this list?
