1. Spinach

It’s one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. It’s also readily available at most local supermarkets, and reasonably priced. Right away spinach is going to go to work for you, providing you with energy, and helping you to fill your stomach without adding a lot of calories to your daily intake.

2. Goji Berries

Many people are just finding out how good goji berries are for your overall feeling of well-being. You’ll want to find dried goji berries, and not simply rely on a juice or other product claiming to contain goji berries in it. They make a great snack to hold you over between meals.

3. Salmon

For those of you that are strength training, salmon will provide support to your muscle tissue with the protein it contains. You’ll also receive tertiary benefits in the form of increased memory function and a decrease in the likelihood of degenerative diseases like Alzheimers. It also helps to make your skin and hair look their best.

4. Avocado

One of the most referenced benefits of avocado is their amounts of healthy monounsaturated fat. It’s interesting that this is a high-fat fruit, as most of them are very low fat or fat free. These fats actually help you to lose fat, if that’s what you’re trying to do.

5. Broccoli

The fiber in broccoli will help keep things in order, digestively speaking, and it is a good non-dairy source of calcium.

6. Almonds

Almonds are often mentioned by fitness instructors as a way to help feed your muscles, but they also have plenty of other benefits. They help prevent heart attacks, and can reduce the amount of bad cholesterol produced in the body.

7. Beets

They are great for nourishing the brain, and can assist in lowering your blood pressure. Because of the broad amount of vitamins and minerals they contain, you can add them to smoothies to instantly up your nutrient count without adding to the calories or fat.

8. Kale

The reason kale is becoming popular is because it helps you fill up without a lot of calories to speak of. It doesn’t have any fat, has plenty of fiber as well as iron and Vitamin K.

9. Raspberries

Berries in general are a good source of antioxidants, but raspberries stand out for their impressive concentrations. If you’re watching your weight, you can count on raspberries as a low fat, high fiber way to give you flavor without sacrificing your diet.

10. Black Beans

It’s commonly understood that fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, but surprisingly enough black beans contain them as well. Beans in general are good to add to your diet, as they are a carbohydrate that is digested more slowly, so you feel fuller longer and helping to stabilize blood sugar levels.
