Variety Is the Secret to a Healthy Diet

Eating a diet full of a wide variety of foods is more than a good idea; it is a great way to ensure you are getting all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients you need.

In fact, more and more studies indicate that it is better to eat your vitamins than to take supplements. With this in mind I urge you to try new fruits and veggies and to experiment with familiar healthy foods you avoid.

You might not like streamed broccoli, but have you tried it sautéed with garlic? Think Brussels sprouts are gross? Try them roasted with olive oil and onions. Never tried kale? Then check out this recipe for Mashed Potatoes with Kale and Olive Oil from Oldways. Not sure what to do with quinoa (or even what it is)? Try YumSugar's Quinoa Primavera with Chicken.

There is a wide world of food, so don’t cut yourself short. You can always visit YumSugar to search for new and exciting recipes.
