Sonoma Diet Foods to Eat

You also need to eat the healthy food from the list of Sonoma foods to eat. You should eat between 45% and 65% of your total daily calories in carbohydrates.

You should consume less than 7% of your total calories in trans fat and no more than 22 grams of saturated fat each day. You should also consume at least 2.5 ounces of protein daily.

Beans and Legumes: Beans and legumes are a perfect choice for a healthy meal because they are packed with nutrients and fiber, very low in fat and calories, and don’t have any cholesterol. Try to incorporate pinto beans, black beans, chickpeas, lentils, split peas, and kidney beans into your daily diet.

Whole Grains: Whole grains are very rich in fiber. They also contain some important vitamins and minerals.

One of the most popular whole grains is oatmeal. Others include barley, brown rice, whole wheat pasta, and whole wheat bread.

Nuts: Nuts are a very nutritious food choice because they are high in protein and fiber, but low in fat and calories. Some of the healthiest choices include almonds, peanuts, and walnuts.

Fruits: Fruits are jam-packed with antioxidants, which fight off cellular damage in the body that can lead to serious diseases. They also provide fiber.

Try to eat at least 2 servings of fruit per day. Some great choices include apples, oranges, bananas, and pears.

Vegetables: Vegetables are very low in fat and calories and are high in fiber. They also contain a number of important nutrients.

One of the most nutritious vegetables is broccoli. Others include celery, onions, and green peppers.

Low-Fat Dairy: Low-fat dairy products include milk (skim, 1%, 2%, and whole), yogurt (low-fat and non-fat), and cheese (low-fat). They are good sources of calcium and protein.

Make sure to pay attention to the serving size; many times people eat more than the serving size because the container is so small. Most containers of yogurt and milk are one serving. Other containers (cheese, cottage cheese) are ¼ of the container.

Protein: While it is very important not to over-do any type of food, this is especially true of protein because it contains a lot of calories (almost 4 calories per gram). Eating too much can slow down your weight loss progress.

The best choices are skinless chicken and turkey. Lean cuts of red meat are also good sources of protein, but watch the fat content (ask for leaner cuts). Fish is another good source of protein, especially salmon.

Fiber: High fiber foods help prevent certain types of cancer, lower cholesterol, and maintain a healthy digestive system. Fiber can also help you feel full and prevent overeating.

Great sources of fiber include fruits (such as raspberries), vegetables (such as broccoli), and whole grains (such as oats).

Portion Size: It is very important to keep an eye on portion sizes. Many processed foods are portioned so that they are much more than one serving.

The nutrition facts listed on the food label are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. So if you are eating a food labeled 100 calories per serving but you eat two portions of it, you are eating 200 calories more than what is listed and this adds up quickly. Another good trick is to use smaller dishes.
