Is it Healthy to Eat the Same Foods Every Day?

The topic of nutrition is complicated, I’m here to simplify it for you.

Am I the only one who likes to eat the same meals every day? Okay good, I’m not the only crazy one out there? Glad I’m not alone.

If you’re like me, and many others out there who are committed to their fitness, you are probably looking for ways to simplify your meal prep to make sure you get enough of what you need, but aren’t constantly having to cook fancy meals to make it happen.

Even if you do like to cook a variety of meals, sometimes it helps to cook an entire weeks worth of food and keep it in the fridge for the rest of the busy work week. In either approach, you will likely reach a point where you feel like you’re consuming the same types of foods over and over again. That’s because there are only so many healthy options out there that fit our budget, taste buds, and cooking abilities.

The question then becomes…is it healthy (and safe) to eat the same types of foods over and over again? Or do we need to constantly change it up?

The answer is a relatively complex one, but in simple terms…no, eating the same types of foods isn’t bad for you and it can sometimes be healthy. Two things to consider here…

  1. Do you have any allergies/sensitivities to foods? If so, you would want to steer clear of those in bulk.
  2. If the foods you eat in bulk lack certain macro/micronutrients, you’ll want to make sure you are getting those nutrients from other food sources or supplements.

I discuss this in more detail in the video below.
