#1 – Green Leafy Vegetables – Spinach, arugula, bok choy, endive, kohlrabi, mustard greens, and watercress.
#2 – Legumes and Beans – Black beans, Chickpeas (aka garbanzos), Kidney beans, Lima beans, Navy beans, Pinto beans, Soy beans and White beans.
#3 – Nuts – especially Almonds, Walnuts. Raw, unflavored and unsalted.
#4 Oatmeal – unsweetened and unflavored. Instant is fine, but steel cut is finer and more dense, making it healthier.
#5 Dairy – Fat-Free or Low Fat Yogurt, Milk and Cheese
#6 Lean Meats – Turkey, chicken, fish and lean steak
#7 Berries – especially raspberries and blueberries. Non-processed, no sugar added, fresh or frozen.
#8 Whey protein – take in extra whey protein at least a couple times a day in a shake or smoothie. I use and recommend Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein and buy it at Walmart for the best price.
