If you’ve ever found yourself staring longingly at that colorful salad bowl on your kitchen counter, then you know that it can be hard to get excited about what goes into your meals. That’s why it’s important to have some nutrition quotes to help you stay motivated and keep your taste buds satisfied.

You see, not everyone knows that a balanced diet typically includes fresh fruits, vegetables, protein, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and plenty of healthy fats from plant-based sources. Instead of focusing on the foods we don’t eat or the ones that aren’t right for us, we should be focusing on the ones that are good for us and making sure they make up most of our diets.

So here are 20 famous nutrition quotes to inspire you to eat your way to great health:
