Avocados– Since they are full of fiber, potassium, and monounsaturated fats, avocados work well with a lot of things. The best way to include them into a meal is as an appetizer before dinner, because who doesn’t love a good guacamole dip?
Garlic and Ginger– Garlic and ginger obviously offer a lot of flavor, but they also have health benefits, since garlic can help boost the immune system, and ginger calms upset stomache.
Chia seeds– Since they are so tiny and relatively mild, chia seeds can be added to anything, from cereal, to smoothies, and even cookies. They are packed with protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids to boot.
Kiwi– Kiwis are loaded with vitamin C, and if you can get past the hairy skin, they are absolutely delicious. Consider slicing them up as a snack for your kids.
Dark Chocolate– Even though it may seem strange that something so delicious could be good for you, but dark chocolate is full of antioxidants, fiber, and important minerals. Obviously you shouldn’t gorge yourself on it, but a little sweet treat now and then can actually be good for your health.
