In addition to being a dense source of nutrients, a healthy helping of eggs leaves you feeling full and sated for longer periods of time, making them the ideal choice of breakfast food compared to carb-heavy foods such as bagels.

This category of foods includes kale, spinach, collards, and swiss chards, as well as several other types of edible leafage that make a positive contribution to nearly any healthy diet.
If it’s good enough for a grizzly bear, it’s good enough for you. Fatty fish such as salmon come packed to the gills with nutrients such as high-quality protein, healthy fats, and iodine, an essential nutrient for thyroid function and managing your body’s metabolism.
4. Cruciferous Vegetables
The term “cruciferous vegetables” refers to veggies such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts. In other words, all the foods your parents made you eat as a kid before you were allowed to leave the table.
5. Beef and Chicken
“But Bestie,” you might say. “I thought meat was unhealthy!”. While processed meat is indeed not great for your health, studies have indicated that unprocessed red meat does not, in fact, increase your risk for heart disease or diabetes, and correlations between red meat and cancer are similarly weak and inconclusive.
6. Boiled Potatoes

You can tune a piano, but can you tuna fish? Tuna is a lean, low-calorie source of protein that’s popular among bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts as a way of loading up on protein while minimizing calories and fat intake.If you’re on a diet that puts an emphasis on protein, the chicken of the sea might be a good place to start. Just make sure you’re buying from an ecologically-sustainable source!
Beans, lentils, and other legumes are yet another healthy source of protein and fiber to help you manage your weight and reach your weight loss goals.
Foods that contain a large amount of water typically have a low energy density, meaning that they make people consume fewer calories than high-density foods.
10. Cottage Cheese
For those of you who aren’t vegan or lactose-intolerant, dairy-based products can be a highly beneficial source of protein. One of the best examples of this is cottage cheese, which contains a huge amount of protein while also being relatively low in carbs and fat. Dairy products such as cottage cheese are also high in calcium, which is also believed to help your body burn excess fat. Say cheese!
