8 Foods Naturopathic Doctors Always Buy

by Dr. Katie Corazzo

There are certain foods that always end up in my shopping cart.

I stick to a healthy, easy, and quick meal plan.

No need for frills or long recipes to stay healthy, but taste doesn’t have to be sacrificed either.


Don’t forget to load up on these goodies next time you’re at the grocery store!

1. Eggs


Can you think of a more versatile food? There are endless options when it comes to cooking with eggs. And the whites are packed with protein while the yokes are full of fat-soluble vitamins like vitamins A, E, and D. Don’t have time to cook eggs in the morning? Have them for lunch or dinner! My favorite preparation is over easy with veggies, goat cheese, and salsa.

2. Green Veggies

Kale, collards, brussel sprouts, broccoli, oh my! Make sure you eat your veggies. Brussels seem to be the craze right now and if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, you’re missing out. The health benefits are endless and the taste is fantastic when garlic and lemon are added.

3. Garlic



This natural antimicrobial can help prevent your most annoying colds and flus. Garlic is also good for your heart, so add one clove per day to your food. Add to your favorite roasted veggies or salad. You can even make fresh salad dressing with chopped garlic, vinegar, and olive oil.

4. Sweet Potatoes

Trade in your white potatoes for these nutritious root veggies. Sweet potatoes have more flavor than your standard white potato, so forgo the butter, salt, cheese, and sour cream and enjoy the sweetness. Like carrots, sweet potatoes are high in vitamins A, C, and B6. Cook like a baked potato, roasted in the oven, or add to a salad after cooling.
