tips on healthy foods to eat besides chicken, pork, vegetables, and fruits.January 19th I had a stent to put in. 


  • Vegetables such as leafy greens (spinach, collard greens, kale, cabbage), broccoli, and carrots
  • Fruits such as berries, apples, bananas, oranges, pears, grapes, and prunes
  • Whole grains such as plain oatmeal, brown rice, and whole-grain bread or tortillas
  • Moderate amounts of dairy foods such as milk, cheese, butter, or yogurt
  • Protein-rich foods:
    • Fish high in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, tuna, and trout)
    • Lean meats such as 95% lean ground beef or pork tenderloin or skinless chicken or turkey
    • Eggs
    • Nuts, seeds, and soy products (tofu)
    • Legumes such as kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, black-eyed peas, and lima beans
  • Oils and foods high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats:  Corn, olive, safflower, sesame, sunflower, avocado and soybean oils (not coconut or palm oil)
    • Nuts such as walnuts, almonds, and pine nuts
    • Nut and seed butters
    • Salmon and trout
    • Seeds (sesame, sunflower, pumpkin, or flax)
    • Avocados
    • Tofu

The real key is to limit simple carbohydrates, which provide little to no nutritional value, but add calories you don't need.  Depending on other health issues you might have, a keto or mostly keto food plan might work best for you.

To keep from getting bored, try a variety of herbs and spices to season foods.  Make interesting food combinations that you've not tried before.

Good luck and let us know how you're doing.
