HEALTHY FOOD
What makes food healthy? Nutrients such as vitamins and minerals (micronutrients) and protein, complex carbohydrates, and good quality fat (macronutrients) are what healthy food is comprised of. Healthy food is not necessarily low in calories, so the caloric content is not something to be concerned about.
QUINOA
QUINOA
rich in fiber, iron, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, B vitamins such as folic acid,
it is not low in calories as 1 cup of cooked quinoa is around 220 calories.
has a low glycemic index meaning it does not increase our blood sugar levels
Dates
Dates
rich in B vitamins especially vitamin B6 and niacin, manganese, copper, potassium, magnesium, and small amounts of calcium.
naturally fat free like all fruits and very low in protein
Each large date is around 65 calories which is equivalent to one fruit serving, 2-3 small ones have around 70 calories. 
Nuts
Nuts
considered healthy if they are raw.
They are a source of good quality mono-unsaturated fats which are heart friendly, such as those found in almonds, cashew nuts, pistachios and peanuts.
They are a good source of protein and are typically low in carbohydrates. However they are significant in calories and must be factored accordingly.
Salmon
Salmon
considered a healthy kind of fish since it is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential in controlling our triglyceride levels and this protects our heart and arteries,
it fights inflammation in our bodies and reduces mild depression
It is slightly higher in calories than white fish, yet it’s perfectly fine to eat on a weekly basis
