1. Be "flaxable".. Buy flax seeds in bulk and add to salads, yogurt, and sprinkle on just about everything. Flax seeds are high in good fats: Omega 3 fatty acids.

2. How you bean? Beans are high in fiber and help lower cholesterol. All varieties have benefits but focus on the darker ones including lentils, kidney, and navy beans.
3. Have a "berry" nice day! Blueberries offer a host of brain boosting antioxidants and they are low in calories, but high in fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K.
4. Broccoli boosting. This mini tree is an incredible nutrient superfood. Broccoli is very low in calories, providing only 31 calories per cup and 5 grams of fiber.
