This is a list of 51 healthy foods and drinks that came across my desk via an email that I really like. The list was compiled by nutritionist Chris and Kara Mohr, owners of Mohr Results which is a nutrition company that gets it and knows what they are talking about. How many of these are on your weekly shopping list? Go through the list to see what you’re eating or missing out on and hopefully make some changes the next time you’re doing food shopping. Anything with an asterisk after the name, are foods that I ate this week.
