The Essential 8

Sometimes I am so consumed with the numbers on the scale that I often forget how much healthier I am based on my diet alone. I came across an article today that made me realize that my diet is currently the best it has been in my whole life. Of course, that's not saying much coming from having a mother who's ideal dinners were cheeseburgers and candy bars, but I can honestly say that on the whole, I am very proud of everything that goes into my body these days.

The article listed the 8 foods you should eat every day and what it's good for. The list of them includes spinach, yogurt, tomatoes, blueberries, walnuts, oats, carrots and black beans. I can check off at least 5 of them on any given day, but I could certainly up my intake of walnuts and berries.

How many of them do you eat?

Thanks for posting this, I know that I eat some of these things but I'm sure I could use a refresher course :)
