It’s true that most men will eat almost anything that tastes good – but that doesn’t mean that men should eat anything and everything they like. While there are a variety of different foods that are considered healthy foods for men, there are a few that stand out. Every man, no matter how young or old, should add these to his diet.
Lean turkey is one of the healthiest foods a man can eat because it’s loaded with protein and very little saturated fat. Lean turkey is also high in B vitamins, zinc, selenium and amino acids, which are the building blocks of a healthy body. Turkey is also good for men who don’t have a ton of time since it can be used in a variety of quick recipes or eaten with fresh vegetables for a quick, healthy meal.
Black beans are high in fiber, which means they’ll fill you up and keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. They’re also packed with complex carbohydrates that your body can use and convert to energy for hours. Black beans are also very high in protein, but they don’t contain any fat and they’re relatively low in calories, with a single cup of cooked black beans totaling about 225 calories.
Eggs are one of the easiest to find and easiest to eat healthy foods for men out there. You might have heard that eating too many eggs is bad for your cholesterol, but the truth is that eating eggs, about one per day, is actually pretty good for your overall health. Eggs are rich in vitamins, nutrients and amino acids that help build lean muscle. Eggs are also very low in calories – a single large egg only has 70.
