You’re an omnivore, so act like it

We all know it’s important to eat healthy and varied. So while I was focusing on healthy, I mistakenly thought I eat varied.
A glass of milk, a butter+cheese and ham sandwich , a beef steak with sweet potato sounds like a big variety in a day. Guess what, you only ate cow, whey and sweet potato!
The variety must come from the variety of the food source, not just from the variety of how something is prepared (milk, butter, cheese, beef steak are one source: cow).

How would real variety looks like for my dinner (this week)

Monday: Baked red beets with (goat) chevre cheese and white fish file
(in a tray stack the slices ready boiled red beets, white fish file and chevre cheese. bake for about 30minutes)

Tuesday: Mixed fresh salad with 2 boiled eggs and red kidney beans
(1 cucumber, 1 salad mix, 1 onion, 5 mushrooms, half red bell pepper, kidney beans, 2 boiled eggs)
