7 Home and Condo Foods to Incorporate in your Diet this Summer

Being “Heathy” comes in all shapes and sizes. While weight loss is not a magic pill for one to be healthy, and not everyone needs to pursue weight loss, but it’s something you might look forward to in the future to achieve a healthier you.

Coupled with good exercise, is a great recipe for success when it comes to achieving a balanced healthy lifestyle, your diet can affect your health outcomes.

If losing weight or weight management is your goal, avoid fast food and check out this list of food to incorporate in your everyday condo food while enjoying your condo living experience:

1.    Eggs


Let’s start off with something easy yet satisfying, once feared for being high in overall cholesterol, whole eggs have been making a resurgence at the top.

These fears were rooted in misconceptions that overlooked how your body regulated cholesterol levels. Your body sources it, as needed, from your diet or your liver to maintain its baseline levels.

Although a higher intake in eggs may raise the levels in cholesterol in some people, eggs are one of the best foods to eat if you’re looking to reach or maintain a healthier weight.

Eggs are incredibly nutrient-dense not just that, eggs are easy to cook food especially if you just want to grab a quick bite while in your condo working from home. Interestingly, almost all its nutrients are found in the yolks like, choline and vitamin D, although egg whites deliver 4-6 grams of protein each.

Because they’re high in protein and fat, they help you feel full.

That’s actually the key, because responding to your body’s internal fullness and hunger cues can help you reach or maintain a healthy weight. In other words, getting in the habit of eating when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full can help your weight loss goals.

2.    Chicken breasts and Lean meat


For those looking for food they should cook out at a BBQ night out at their condo in Laguna, but most importantly those people looking for a lean protein source, we have lean meat and chicken breast. Nutritionally, chicken and red meat are both high in protein and iron. Get those for optimal support for weight management and heart health. Skinless chicken breast and lean red meat like tenderloin or steak packed protein and iron and have less saturated fat than other cuts.

How you prepare the meat can also affect health outcomes.


Red meat when cooked at a high temperature for a long duration, by smoking or grilling, for instance, renders fat drippings. Against hot cooking surfaces, these forms a toxic by-product called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, the little dark things on the pan that may cause cancer.

3.    Tuna

Tuna is another great source of protein food, not only that but will help keep you saturated. Among these healthy fats we have a form of omega-3 fatty acids which is beneficial for heart health.


Eating fish like tuna and salmon is a great way to increase protein intake with healthy fats to not only support your heart but also your eyes and brain. If you’re eating canned tuna the best choice is to get the canned water tuna if you aim to eat fewer calories.  Tuna packed in oil raises the calories, sodium, sodium, and fat, but could be more satiating. It depends on your macros for the day.

4.    Cottage cheese


One of my favorite things on the list is, cottage cheese because of the variety of meal ideas you can combine with cottage cheese especially if you’re looking for a quick meal within your condo in Laguna. So, what does cottage bring to the table? Since its summer we’re all chasing that chiseled six pack, eating rich protein dense food like cottage cheese is a great way to boost protein intake, which is important for building and maintaining muscle. It’s also very satiating and high in calcium.

5.    Greek yogurt

In my opinion, one of the best dairy product out there in terms of protein source, this is great for weight management, as it has twice the amount of protein as regular yogurt.


Even better, yogurt and even Greek yogurt, contain probiotic bacteria that can improve the function of the gut. Just to ensure that it has the probiotic bacteria, look for “live cultures” or “active cultures” for an added gut health boost.

If you don’t see this just look at the ingredients list of thermophilus or bifidus. Having a healthy gut may help protect against inflammation as well as leptin resistance, which is one of the main hormonal drivers of obesity. Flavored or sweetened low fat yogurt typically has fillers or added sugars to compensate for texture, so it’s best to eat it only occasionally and to check the labels to see if you’re avoiding any of those additives.

6.    Avocado

Like almost everything on this list, Avocados are unique fruits. While most fruits are high in carbs, avocados are instead loaded with healthy fats. They’re particularly high in monounsaturated oleic acid, the same type of fat found in olive oil. Despite it being filled up by fat, avocados also contain a lot of water and fiber, making them greatly satiating.


What’s more, they’re a perfect addition to vegetable-based salads, as studies show that their fat content can increase how much of the carotenoid antioxidants your body absorbs from vegetables, fun fact they help increase absorption by 4.6-12 minutes and they also help absorb other important fat-soluble vitamins. Avocados also contain many important nutrients, including fiber and potassium.

It’s worth keeping in mind that avocados are energy-dense, so being mindful of portions is key when weight loss is your goal. The more you practice taking you body’s internal hunger and fullness cues, the more you can intuitively tell what the right amount is for you at the time.

7.    Salmon for your healthy diet

Looking for a special late night dinner idea for you and your date at your commodious condo in Laguna unit, Fatty fish like salmon are incredibly nutritious and very satisfying.


Salmon is loaded up with high quality protein, healthy fats, and various important nutrients. That combination keeps you satiated and can help you reach that end goal weight of yours.

Salmon is loaded up with omega-3 fatty acids, which may help reduce inflammation just like tuna. Once again inflammation plats a major role in obesity and metabolic disease. Fish and seafood, in general supple a significant amount of iodine which is necessary for proper thyroid function, which is important to keep that metabolism running.
