20 Foods for Good Health

These foods all offer a wide range of vitamins, minerals and protein, along with beneficial fats and fibre. Including 2 servings of veg at each meal is easy too. Try a breakfast smoothie as an example, you can see recipe on Instagram @happyout_nutrition. You can also check out my Macronutrient post to better understand what you're eating.

Choosing 1 or 2 foods from each group at every meal will help to ensure you are getting a good balance of protein, fat, fibre and carbs. Each play an important role in the body and finding a balance that works for you is key.
