Healthy Food, Healthy Bodies

Human beings around the world need food to survive. Whether we are eating bananas or barley, our bodies need nutritious or healthy food in order to function or work properly. Healthy foods include fresh fruits like strawberries, peaches and apples; fresh vegetables like corn, carrots and cucumbers; beans like pinto beans, kidney beans and garbanzo beans; nuts like walnuts, pistachios and almonds; seeds like pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds, and whole grains such as those found in whole wheat bread, oatmeal cereal and brown rice.
