Avocados aren’t just a trendy breakfast item millennials put on their toast, which is actually delicious by the way. It’s a nutritious fruit that has amazing benefits for the body.
According to Eating Well, avocados are loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. They are a great source of potassium and they are high in vitamins and fiber. Healthline even reports that avocados have more potassium than bananas. This healthy and delicious fruit is only 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. So put it on some toast, mix it in a salad, add it to scrambled eggs, or have it by itself.
Did you know that almonds have more fiber than any other tree nut? Medical News Today says they are a rich source of magnesium, vitamin E, iron, calcium, fiber and riboflavin. They even help maintain a healthy cholesterol level. You can have them for a quick snack or throw some in a salad.
Edamame is typically eaten in Asia, but has become increasingly popular in Western countries. It’s a great snack or addition to a meal. These delicious snacks are high in protein, lower cholesterol, rich in vitamins and minerals, and even reduce the risk for breast cancer.
If you are not sure how to eat edamame, you can have it raw with salt, add it to stir fry, or toss it in your salad.
Add some greens to your diet! Broccoli is a great source of vitamins and only contains 50 calories per serving. One stalk of broccoli is said to contain more than 100 percent of the recommended daily vitamin K and 200 percent of the recommended dose of vitamin C.

Spinach might not be the best tasting veggie, but it’s one of the best for you.
