So-called unhealthy foods you should be eating
When it comes to healthy eating, nutritionists are the experts. They are specially trained in how to take in the optimal balance of nutrients. When we think of nutritionists, we often think of a glowing young woman who has a green smoothie for breakfast, packed salad for lunch, and some roasted vegetables for dinner.
Sure, maybe she spends some days like this, but most are a balance of all the food groups. Nutritionists also know a little secret. Food is not good or bad. It has no morality. We are not good for eating a salad or bad for eating a pizza. In fact, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has stated that classifying certain foods as 'good' or 'bad' only leads to confusion and unhealthy eating practices.
They also know to avoid the fad diets. The guidelines for a 'healthy diet' are constantly changing. Eggs are evil. No wait, they're actually full of nutrients. Carbs will make you fat. Oops, but you need them for energy.
We could all learn a little something from nutritionists when it comes to balance. Follow along for 10 foods that you thought were unhealthy, but are actually good for you.
