7 Foods to Improve your Health

How many times has your belly started growling before you even start to think about what's for supper? How many times have you been looking for something to snack, but can't figure out what you want, much less what you should eat?

Wait before you crack open that gallon of ice cream. Wait before you order a pizza...again.

Let me tell you about a few foods that might help with those cravings without making you feel guilty.

Almonds - We all know that nuts in general are great to snack on. They are packed with protein & provide that satisfying crunch that we are usually looking for in a late night snack. But almonds specifically can help calm the nerves & fight the stress that tends to make weight loss hard.

Eggs - This one is a no brainer. Eggs have been given a bad rap over the years that made people quick to ditch the yolk & only eat the white. By eating the egg yolk as well, your snack will not only taste better but it will pack in a lot more of the proteins that release the hormone glucagon. This helps tackle belly fat.

Raising chickens makes this one easy for me! I personally care for regular cooked eggs (scrambled, over easy, whatever), but I love an omelet - hey more veggies! Hard boiled eggs are must in our house! They are great plain with salt & pepper, on salads, or pickled.

Yogurt - Yogurt seems to be THE standard "diet" food. That's because its loaded with probiotics that help the digestive system. It also helps fight off belly fat.

Oats - I don't know many people who don't love a good hot bowl of oatmeal. Now, I'm not talking about the Maple & Brown Sugar flavor pack that only takes a minute to make. Although all oats are good for you, those prepacked flavors also have more sugar in them. Stick to steel cut or rolled oats for the most nutrition benefits.

Parmesean Cheese - Really? Cheese on a "healthy food" list. Yep, its been proven that if you have one serving of whole milk or cheese daily it can aid in weight loss. Add it to spice up the flavor in dishes instead of cheddar cheese.

Olive Oil - While olive oil cannot replace your standard vegetable oil for cooking, it is great drizzled over salads or veggies, used for lightly sauteing, or mixed in with pasta. It has monounsaturated fat that is good for your heart & makes you feel full longer. It also helps control inflammation.

Chocolate - WOO HOO This is the one I have been waiting to have permission to eat!! Chocolate, especially dark chocolate can help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, & stress. It can increase blood flow to the brain power causing a spike in alertness. Dark chocolate is also more filling than regular milk chocolate & it can reduce other cravings.

These super foods could work wonders in your diet. But, what if you could combine them with something that could make them work even better?
