Healthy Foods to Incorporate in Your Diet

10 Healthy Foods to Try

Eating is one area where many people remain happily in their comfort zones. Admittedly, I used to be a very picky eater, but have learned to embrace the healthy bounty that exists, particularly in the produce aisle. A group of nutritionists was asked to round up 10 foods that aren't commonly incorporated in the diets of many Americans, but would be nutritious ways to mix things up. Many of the items on this list are part of my regular diet, particularly broccoli rabe, edamame, and quinoa. Have you been eating these 10 foods to try?

  1. Kiwi
  2. Broccoli rabe
  3. Brazil nuts
  4. Edamame
  5. Red lentils
  6. Quinoa
  7. Canned salmon
  8. Prawns
  9. Whole grain and multigrain pastas
  10. Pomegranate

I love kiwi fruit! I buy it whenever it's in season. I don't know what broccoli rabe is? I like edamame but I've only ever seen it at restaurants. I've heard you can buy in the freezer section of supermarkets but I haven't found it anywhere yet. I made a salad with quinoa for the first time last year and it was delicious!! I should make it again, it's super healthy and it makes a great side: http://justbento.com/handbook/recipe-collection-mains/quinoa-parsley-and-pepper-salad I sometimes have canned salmon or tuna in salads for lunch but I'm more likely to have grilled salmon (or tuna) with dinner. I love prawns but they're expensive. :-/ I only cook with whole grain and multigrain pastas now! Pomegranate is pretty expensive in Australia but I bought some at the market on the weekend and it's great! Rather fiddly to get anything out of it though, and it sprays juice everywhere... but it looks beautiful, like little jewels. :)

For a really delicious red lentil soup, saute off 2 onions, 2 zucchini, 2 carrots and 1 bunch celery in a little olive oil. Then add 1 can tomato puree, 1 can diced tomatoes, 4 cups vegetable stock, 3 cups water, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1 cup split red lentils, 1/2 cup pearl barley and 1/2 cup split yellow peas. Bring to the boil and simmer for about an hour and a half. It's really yummy, I make it every week. I also make a simple curried lentil soup: saute two onions in olive oil and add 1 tin tomato puree, 1 tin diced tomatoes, 1.5 cups split red lentils, 4 cups vegetable stock and 3 cups water, 1 tsp each of ground cumin, coriander and mild curry powder (or more to taste), and the juice and zest of two lemons. Bring to boil and simmer for about an hour.

Mmmm. I haven't had edamame or kiwis in awhile. I have yet to try quinoa, but I've been meaning to.

ever since i had whole grain pasta, i've had no desire to have regular white pasta. i really eat pasta very rarely (because for some reason portions are usually totally warped unless i make it myself), but when i do it's trader joe's sprouted grain paperdelle, and it's delicious and nutritious.

I've tried some of these things...but some of these are pretty expensive to incorporate as regular staples in my diet. I hate canned salmon though. I want fresh salmon, with no bones!

Great list! I like all of those things, but I've never really tried red lentils before. I will have to try those sometime. I love prawns, but I can't afford to buy them often, so they're sort of a special treat for me.

Thanks Tslgirl, I thought they were just like big-ass shrimp. Since i really like shrimp I will def. add it to my "Must Try 2009" list. I actaully haven't seen it in any supermarkets though, so I may have to work harder to find them.

I think prawns are basically the same Smacks, just larger than normal shrimp. I wikipedia'd it (because i had the same question), and there was some technical bit about their gill structure, but it was a little beyond me.

I love pomegranate. It's great mixed into Greek yogurt. I love mixing that and raspberries and blueberries into it if I have all 3 at the same time. Kiwi is good too. I also loved whole grain pasta ever since I first tried it. I don't even care to ever have white pasta since. I find it kind of gross.
