The Huffington Post published a slide show of the top 50 healthy foods. I broke the list down into stuff my family eats every day, often, sometimes and never.
I think summer time makes it easy to eat all the fruit. They are shoveling down strawberries, blueberries, cherries, cantaloupe (not on the list), watermelon (not on the list). They’ll eat the spinach as a salad. We do the Brussels sprouts in the winter.
Tell me which of these foods your family is eating on a regular basis? Which won’t they touch?
Almonds –(We usually have almonds, pecans, walnuts or pistachios open and they dip in during the day.)
Apples – Always on the counter
Blueberries – Always in the fruit drawer
Brown rice (almost) – They don’t even comment on the difference. They also don’t mind whole grain pasta either.
Cherries – They love.
Coffee – This is just me.
Dark chocolate – All of us.
Eggs – Rose likes fried. Walsh and Lilina like scrambled, but none of them like boiled.
Oatmeal – Have at least three mornings a week for breakfast.
Olive oil – Sits on the counter and use in everything.
Pistachios — See almonds.
Greek Yogurt (almost) – Lilina likes the texture but the other two do not.
Spinach (almost – in salads)
Water – We carry re-fillable water bottles with us everywhere!
Avocado – I have the best recipe for guacamole.
Broccoli – Walsh adores
Brussels Sprouts – Mostly in the winter
Cranberries – Mostly me.
Edamame – Costco sells frozen packages that you heat in the microwave and add salt. They love to snack on.
Ginger – Add into lots of dishes.
sweet potatoes – they love cut into strips and baked with a little olive oil and salt.
Tomatoes – Rose loves in a caprese salad – with fresh mozzarella and basil.
seaweed – on sushi
Sunflower sprouts (never heard of it)
Turmeric – not in my spice drawer
White tea (don’t have any at home)
