All too often, seemingly healthy snacks are secretly loaded with sugar, saturated fat, and carbohydrates. That's why we handpicked the healthiest foods to eat that are delicious and incredibly easy to cook. After all, rule number one for sticking to a smart meal plan is to not get bored, and these healthy ingredients will keep you on your toes (promise!).

You'll notice something that all these healthy foods have in common: each one is a basic ingredient, such as a fruit, vegetable, grain, or dairy product. That means no pre-packaged products with a laundry list of strange-sounding ingredients. You can use this as a rule of thumb when shopping: if the food is simple, wholesome, plant-based, and/or comes from the periphery of the grocery store—i.e., where the produce, eggs, fish, and other whole foods tend to live—you're in good shape. (Literally.)

Now, on to the healthiest foods to eat list.
