Jenn’s 3 Favorite Healthy Foods
We’re hungry! And talking about food for this round of Question of the Week, which asks each FBG, “What are your three favorite healthy foods?” Tough one…
Three? I just have to pick three? Honestly, I could probably list 300 healthy foods I simply adore. Between almost every fruit and vegetable on the planet (minus beets; I cannot get into beets no matter how much I really, really want to), I’m a huge fan of chocolate, red wine, buffalo, fish, quinoa—again, I could go on and on. But if I absolutely had to narrow it down to three uber-healthy foods that I’m obsessed with…well, here they are:
My 3 Favorite Healthy Foods
1. Kale. The fact that I bought an “Eat More Kale” T-shirt pretty much sums my obsession up, I think. No? How about that I can’t stop writing posts about it, buy three bags at a time at Trader Joe’s, and it makes an appearance in the Sh*t FBGs Say video. It might also have something to do with Erin trying it, chip-afying it, too. Oh, and it’s DELICIOUS and makes me feel amazing. Need I say more? I think not. Color me kale-obsessed (and happy about it).
2. Eggs. I don’t care how you cook them—scrambled, poached, over-easy (on top of a bed of kale is best, by the way, if you like them that way)—I love them all. Whether it’s a smoothie protein-ed up with egg whites as a snack, a frittata with asparagus and garlic for dinner, an omelet for breakfast or a couple of hard-boiled eggs to tide me over, eggs are versatile, easy, cheap and so-freakin’ tasty. I love them.
3. Nut butter. Yeah, I’m cheating on this one. Asking me to pick a favorite nut butter is like asking your mom to pick between you and your brother as to who is her favorite. It’s just not fair. Peanut, almond, cashew, sunflower—you are all beautifully delicious to me and oh-so fabulously filling. And I love you on celery, carrots, apples and straight out of the jar with a spoon. Or my finger. Don’t judge.
If you had the tough task of narrowing your favorite healthy foods list down to three, what would your top picks be? Similar to mine or totally different? I’d love to hear! And you’ll probably remind me of a few faves… —Jenn
