There are staple items for your eating plan that are often referred to as super-foods. These should be added when possible to your daily menu because of their exceptional nutritional value. The list can vary slightly ( due to who is writing it) but here is my list.

1. Greek Yogurt- It's packed with muscle building protein and fewer carbs than regular yogurt. It contains casein, which is a slow digesting protein. Being slow digesting, helps you feel full longer. Some people don't prefer the texture, but stick with it. In the end, you'll find you prefer it.

2. Green Tea- Studies have found that the antioxidants in green tea ( if you drink 2- 3 cups per day) help reduce belly fat).

3. Garlic- I put it in veggies, quieno, and rub it on meats. Just make sure your date is eating it as well :)

4. Apples- Jam-packed with fiber, apples are nutritious and keep you feeling full.

5. Blueberries- Pound-per-pound, blueberries pack in more nutrition in such a small space, than any other fruit.

6. Tomatoes- contain lycopene, which acts as an anti-oxidant

7. Walnuts/Almonds- These nuts( and their oils) help the body with heart healthy omega 3's

Add these super-foods to your clean eating diet ( blueberries on yogurt, tomatoes, or nuts sprinkled on salads, or apples anytime), and let your body experience the rewards
