Foods That Are Better For You Than You May Believe


Guacamole and other dips

With some minor changes, you may enjoy your appetizer tray and feel better about it. Avocados are high in fat, but not fast-food fat. 


Breakfast classics

Eggs have a terrible reputation for cholesterol, yet they may boost HDL ("good") cholesterol and lessen heart disease risk (Healthline). 


Italian dishes

Italian food may conjure images of family-style spaghetti casseroles with cheese, carbs, and meat.


Burritos and other handheld foods

Burritos are fantastic for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. One tortilla with beans, tiny amounts of meat or eggs, rice, and veggies covers all dietary categories.



Potatoes conjure images of french fries or potato chips. Fried potatoes aren't healthy, but potatoes are. 


Butter and nut butters

Poor peanut butter choices can increase saturated fats, calories, and salt. Protein, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, niacin, and heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are in PB.


Dark meat chicken

Chicken with white meat is healthier. You can eat poultry other than chicken breasts. Chicken skin is the biggest health risk, while dark meat is healthier.


Coffee and alcohol (in moderation)

Drinks can hide calories and sugar, making healthy eating difficult. What if you're tired of water with every meal? Some drinks are healthy, luckily.


Soy-based foods

Soy products as meat replacements have been questioned due to illness risks. But health experts believe organic, non-GMO soy can deliver many minerals. 



Dessert lovers rejoice! Chocolate may be better for your mind and body than you believe.
