20’s are your crazy years. You’re working in your first real job, you’re making new friends, you are running about doing multiple things at once. All this can take a toll on your eating habits. Your 20’s are when you should eat healthy food and replenish your system with good calories and conquer your biggest diet dilemmas. We’re here not to give you life’s lessons but to tell you what you should be eating in your 20’s. Give those pizzas a rest. (Though occasional pizza eating is a total yes!)

It’s time to kill the sweet craving with berries. They are a great alternative for cupcakes! A handful of these berries will satisfy that sugar-crave without the surge of insulin. Berries have some of the highest antioxidant levels of all commonly consumed fruits. To make a mini meal out of berries, mix it up with some plain yogurt and low-fat granola.
Whether you eat eggs sunny side up, scrambled, or as an omelette, eggs are a great substitute from your pastry breakfast that you ate pre-20s. Often in your 20s, you’re lacking on high-quality, hunger-squashing proteins. Eggs are a great source of protein to crush that hunger and keep you going.
Quinoa is a whole grain that is packed with fibre, a lot more than other types of grain, iron, and all types of nutrients. This super food is has a sufficient amount of protein, helping to keep your hunger quiet. It’s also relatively low in carbs. Quinoa is rich in magnesium. You need all the detoxification you can get when you are in your 20’s.
