Melissa McAllister: The Most Nutritious Foods for Your Daily Diet [EP 33]

Show Notes:

In this episode, Melissa talks about what she feels is the core of the most nutritious foods you should have on a daily basis. These foods are vitamin and nutrient rich satiating foods that help in keeping people healthy in many forms.

In this episode you’ll learn:

06:38 Cruciferous Vegetables and Avocados
13:53 Water and Probiotics  
17:33 Olive Oil 
21:25 Green Tea
23:32 Sweet Potatoes/ Potatoes


Number one on Melissa’s list are eggs, which for a long time got the reputation of being bad for bad for your heart because of the cholesterol associated with them. Now it is understood that cholesterol is actually a necessary part of the diet and eggs are a nutrient rich source that can provide that.  

Cruciferous Vegetables

Cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts are some of the items that are part of the cruciferous vegetable group. They are packed with nutrients and full of fiber. These should be eaten multiple times a day. While the intake of avocados needs to be monitored more than cruciferous vegetables, they are a wonderful source for good fats for the body. 


Water, an essential life source and can be found in food sources such as within vegetables and fruit as well as just drinking water itself. Water needs to be consumed at LEAST three times a day from a clean source. Probiotics are a great way to supplement nutrients to support the gut.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is another satiating item that is the most nutrient dense within its category along with butterfat. It’s a great source to incorporate in many meals, but must be high quality and not cooked at high temperatures.

Green Tea

A powerful antioxidant that is shown to boost metabolism. Quality is important, but with the right source, it is a great addition to the daily diet. Green tea is simply overall good for you and provides many benefits.

Sweet Potatoes/Potatoes

Potatoes have grown to have a bad reputation, which stems from the fact that the portion sizes have continuously increased over the years. If portion sizes are monitored, potatoes can be beneficial to the diet, particularly cold potatoes.
