Whole grains have beneficial nutrients that refined grains are missing, like magnesium (which helps the body produce energy) and fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer. Trade your refined grains for whole grains by eating oatmeal for breakfast, swapping out white pasta, flour and bread for whole-wheat versions, or trying a new-to-you whole grain, like quinoa, freekah or barley.

Most Americans fall short of reaching the average recommended daily amount of 2½ to 3 cups of vegetables—which means they’re missing out on key vitamins, minerals and fiber. Get more vegetables in your diet by adding them to sandwiches, pastas or stir-fries. Try starting your day with vegetables at breakfast (like in this Greek omelet packed with spinach) and be sure to add veggies to your dinner tonight, like in this salad-topped pizza.

Clean eating doesn’t mean giving up meat entirely, but cutting back on meat helps you cut back on saturated fat, which can raise your cholesterol and is bad for your heart. Today, try getting your protein from other sources, such as tofu, eggs, beans, yogurt and nuts.

Americans typically eat 1.5 times the recommended sodium limit of 2,300 mg. According to new research, the average restaurant meal at a full-service restaurant delivered more than 3,500 mg of sodium (yikes!). That’s why cooking healthier meals is key to limiting your salt intake. You can boost flavor without reaching for the salt shaker (or at least use less salt) by using herbs and spices and adding vinegar or citrus to foods. Try a squeeze of lemon on fish or chicken, a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil over salad, or dried herbs like oregano and rosemary in soups.

You can greatly improve your diet and clean it up in a snap by cutting back on processed and packaged foods, which can be full of sodium, added sugars and sometimes ingredients we can’t pronounce. Try cooking up a stir-fry at home instead of getting takeout, or making homemade pizza instead of frozen.

If your recent restaurant dining involved a super-savory dish that made you drool or a salad dressing that knocked your socks off, the chef might have been using a secret ingredient: anchovies. These tiny cured fish pack a wallop of flavor in tiny amounts and because of that, chefs like to add them to everything from salad dressing to beef stew. You might be turning up your nose, thinking of those salty, shriveled bits on pizza. However, canned or cured anchovies are a totally different taste experience.

Well, such a wonder food may actually exist.

A new study published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), showed that people who ate a 1-ounce serving of nuts seven or more times each week had a 20 percent lower death rate than those who didn’t eat any.
