What are your favorite foods for the best nutrition?

Recommended Posts

Due to the limited stomach capacity I am trying to eat the best nutritional foods with Vitamins and minerals I can. Besides Protein requirements what are some foods you eat to get the best nutritional bang for your buck? I still have a Premier Protein shake daily. I eat yogurt and spinach daily. I eat pumpkin seeds and or walnuts often too. I know a varied diet with different fruit and veggies is good but sometimes i want to just stick with something I know I will get a lot of nutrients from. I don't eat Beans often and think maybe I should try to add some to my diet.

I like @FluffyChix list and am adding sashimi (sushi without rice), because it's a good thing to eat out, lobster, Chilean sea bass, lower cal. trail mixes with nuts and dried berries in small amounts, unsweetened almond milk, and she included most of the other things I eat.

My favorite breakfast: One egg scrambled with fat-free cheddar cheese, one slice turkey bacon, 3 strawberries, a small glass of Tomato juice to take my pills, and coffee because I am not perfect. LOL
