6. Chia seeds
If you’re looking for a superfood, stop right here, because chia seeds may be what you want. “Chia seeds can be added to smoothies, sprinkled on oatmeal and yogurt, mixed into baked goods and salad dressings or even making your own chia pudding is a great way to add fiber, healthy fats, and protein,” says Caroline J. Cederquist, MD, bariatric doctor and founding physician of bistroMD, a weight-loss meal delivery service.
“Just one ounce of these tiny seeds houses 10g of fiber and 5g of protein! Fiber adds bulk to our digestive movements while also reducing the net carbohydrates of your food, aiding in blood sugar stabilization.”
