There are plenty of ways that you can go on a diet and many of them are conflicting. For example, the vegan diet tells you that animal products are bad for you while many doctors agree that the Paleo diet is one of the healthiest options. With all this conflicting information, it is hard to nail down the foods that are useful for you in the long run for just about everyone. No matter who you are believing, this list of 3 basic foods should help you to achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle without any long term problems.
- Kale – this leafy green vegetable is one of the healthiest types of vegetables with plenty of nutrients. Not only is it a food that is packed with nutrients, it is versatile for cooking and widely abundant. You can find kale just about anywhere at local stores in the United States. Because it is so popular, it is widely considered one of the healthiest options no matter what diet you are on.
- Sweet potatoes – whether you are a vegan or a Paleo eater, there is no doubting the sweet potato. This carbohydrate filled tubar is filled with minerals like magnesium and potassium, which can help anyone who exercises a lot. More importantly, it has a lot of fiber and energy that is in the form of complex carbs so everyone is happy. It is a healthy option that can be sauteed, steamed, boiled or even baked.
- Dark chocolate – while the Paleo people who are super strict might make a stink about dark chocolate (due to the added sugar), most people will be okay with it. If you are eating Paleo with a dark chocolate bar of 70 – 80% cacao, you are pretty safe and it comes with a number of health benefits!
