The answer is easy. The practice of choosing the "best" foods regularly is not easy!
What you want are WHOLE foods -- foods that are closest to the way they arrived in nature! So that means plants (fruits, veggies and legumes) that are fresh, unprocessed or lightly processed, not preserved in salt and chemicals.
It also means fresh, low-fat proteins, like lean chicken, turkey, pork and (occassionally) beef -- again, the less "processed" the better, not smoked, brined, or otherwise pre-salted.
And finally carbs that digest slowly -- like whole grains, high-fiber pastas, and winter squashes that are also sweet-ish but high in fiber and rich in nutrients.
THAT's what's good for us!
Oh that I could manage to eat that way, every day, every meal!
Best wishes as you work to shape your eating plan and learn to enjoy all that is GOOD for you!
Simple kindness to one's self and all that lives is the most powerful transformational force of all.
