Buy 5, Drop 5 – Part 4

Buy 5, Drop 5 – Part 4

Put these power foods on your plate and eat your way to a smaller size.

 

Eggplant – One 20-ounce cup of this royal beauty delivers two and a half grams of fiber, the same stuff that gives apples their filling superpower.

Rainbow Chard- Not all leafy greens have to be, well, just green. This colorful variation is full of flavonoids, which research has found may help you maintain a healthy weight.

Garbanzos– Reason to become a chick (pea) magnet: A study found that eating them regularly caused people to clean up their diets, and eat less high-fat, low-fiber junk.

Balsamic Vinegar- Instant flavor sans fat! Plus, its acetic acid has been shown to help stabilize blood glucose levels, so no sugar crash.

Peaches– I like this fuzzy logic: eat more stone fruit, lose more fat. Their phenolic compounds have been linked to anti-obesity and antidiabetic properties.easy-kale-recipes-400x400
