What Food is Good for You?

What Food is Good for YouWhat food is good for you? The short answer to this question is fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and low-fat dairy. The answer is simple (and maybe a little boring), but when you’re starving and short on time, you’re not usually thinking about grabbing a banana or a handful of pumpkin seeds. Chances are, your go-to snack is something that’s not very healthy because it’s fast and all you had to do to eat it was open up the bag or tear off the wrapper. Let us help you consider a few alternatives to help you fill your kitchen with food that’s quick, easy and good for you!

What Food is Good for You and Why?

Time magazine published a great list of 31 healthy foods you should be eating now. The list includes black beans, kale, salmon, walnuts, sweet potatoes, tomatoes and much more. You could really just print out the list and take it to the store in case you ever have a doubt about what food is good for you. But Time goes a few steps further and explains why each food is good for you and provides a recipe!

A great place to take this list and get most of what’s on it is Mill Market in Hawley, PA.
