Healthy foods to eat every day!

We know that no food is really bad. It’s all about balance. So even French fries, chips, or chocolate can be part of a balanced diet, as long as you don’t overdo it. However, there are some foods that you would really benefit from consuming as often as possible because they are so good for your health that it would be wrong to go without them.
