Health Tip: Eat Enough Nutrient-Rich Foods

Here's what should be included in your diet

(HealthDay News) -- There's no denying that the taste of food makes it more appealing. But it's also important to opt for nutrient-rich foods that give our bodies what they need.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests these nutrient-rich choices:

  • Whole grains, such as rolled oats, whole-wheat pasta, brown rice and whole-grain crackers.
  • A colorful variety of fruits and vegetables, specifically, dark and leafy greens and orange veggies.
  • Lean proteins, including fish, skinless poultry, lean cuts of beef and pork, and beans.
  • Low-fat dairy products, including milk and cheese.
