List of Foods to Eat

This is the time of year many people think about goals for the New Year.  When it comes to food I try to review the list of foods  that I can eat.  Focusing on the positive. 

Here are a few of the foods that I include in my list of things to eat.

Olive oil
Almonds, walnuts
Dark leafy veggies- kale, spinach
Whole grains-brown rice, oats, quinoa, beans, and lentils
Green tea
Dark Chocolate
Grass fed meat

Another food that I love are winter squashes.  Acorn, hubbard and especially, butternut.  The above picture is a golden hubbard from my local farmers market.  I roasted these for 15min at 425 degrees in the oven.   Squash are difficult to cut into, but worth the effort in taste and nutrition.  I would love to hear from you on what is on your list of foods to eat.  Leave a comment.  Live well, eat well, enjoy the last day of 2011.


  1. I LOVE butternut! Pat C. gave me the seeds from her famous butternut squash. Let me know if you want a few!

  2. Here's a good link to help motivate towards whole/natural food choices...the video is informative, but you have to wait while they promo their business before you can hear their message!
