So add these to your grocery list!
- Avocados. My Stop The Clock Nutrition Plan has an Avocado Toast recipe for a reason - avocados are so good for you! People who regularly eat avocados tend to have a lower waist circumference and body mass index.
- Walnuts. Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts are part of a low-glycemic diet - thought to help burn more calories than a high-glycemic diet. Walnuts are also heart healthy and good for the brain, so eat up!
- Salmon. Wild-caught salmon is more than a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, it is also low on the glycemic index, so it helps keep blood sugar levels stable and may prevent the storage of fat around the midsection. I eat salmon at least a few times each week, and my Stop The Clock Nutrition Plan includes a zesty Salmon and Quinoa recipe!
- Quinoa. I traded in rice and pasta for quinoa most of the time a few years back, and am so happy I did! Quinoa is a great source of fiber and protein, helping to fill me up, and giving me lasting energy. Plus it has been linked to good gut health and may even prevent bloating!
- Kale. It probably sounds like old news, but if you haven't yet jumped on the kale train, climb aboard! Kale is a good source of fiber, which helps regulate insulin spikes, plus it's packed with antioxidants and magnesium - important for reducing stress hormones in the body.
