Find out how to eat like a health guru.
By Reina Berger
With every passing day, it seems like another diet fad is upon us. With so much conflicting information out there, it can be hard to cut through all the noise and get to the bottom of things. If you are wondering what to avoid on your path to health and wellness, try eating like a nutritionist. We spoke to registered dietitian Maya Feller to find out which foods she avoids at all costs. Here are her 10 picks.
Instant Grain Packages
When it comes to eating a grain, whether it's instant oatmeal or a package of rice, Feller prefers to buy the grains herself. For dinner, she adds a low-sodium broth or water with garlic and herbs. For breakfast, she tops her grains with fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds. Avoiding the pre-flavored grains ensures you're not consuming too many additives, sugars, salts, and other unhealthy ingredients.
