Jan 22, 2021 02:25 PM EST | By Josh Summers (staff@foodworldnews.com)

In living the daily lives, different activities and responsibilities are done by exhausting and stressful people. Because of this, experts require foods you should eat every day to support your body and reinforce enough energy for you throughout the day.

However, because work and responsibilities take so much of our time, people usually go with foods that fill their stomachs, yet the nutritional value is not enough for the body.

A healthy diet is important for everyone's health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a healthy diet aids in protecting an individual from having malnutrition in all its forms and non-communicable diseases like diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.

Meanwhile, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) also has a guideline on what Americans should eat daily. To simplify what you need to eat, you should eat foods every day to achieve a healthy body and proper nutrition.

Vegetables

We all know the nutritional value of vegetables. Eat This Not That shares that vegetables are a great way of filling up your belly without adding many calories. This only means that these foods are great if you are under a restrictive plan to improve your weight.

If you are keeping this away from your diet, you might have to think again as USDA recommends 3 cups of it per day. Harvard Medical School notes that dairy products like cheese, yogurt, and milk are rich in calcium, which is needed by the muscles and bones to function and reduces fractures' risk. They  can also add protein and fat, which are both helpful for making an individual feel full after a meal.

Fruits

Better Health shares that fruits (also vegetables) contain phytochemicals, which can help protect an individual from some diseases, and regularly eating them are associated with a lower risk of Type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, cancer, and high blood pressure. USDA recommends eating 2 cups of fruits a day. Eat This Not That shares that you can make these fruits into smoothies to have a different experience.

Protein

Eat This Not That points out protein is essential in the daily diet because it makes you feel full, and they're also good for overall muscle health and metabolism. USDA notes that a daily protein intake must be five and a half ounces. Eat This Not That points out that protein includes seafood, meat, and poultry, and of course, you can also accumulate them from vegetables.

Remembering these foods you should eat every day will make you more productive and give you extra energy during your work. Heaving a healthy diet and lifestyle will make you enjoy life longer and have more adventures to conquer.
