Blueberries are rich in vitamins such as C, K and B6, and minerals like phosphorous and manganese. They also contain fiber and several phytochemicals.
Flax seeds are an excellent source of the omega-3 essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid—ALA. They are also a source of phytochemicals called lignans, as well as a source of dietary fiber, magnesium, potassium, manganese and minerals phosphorous, iron and copper.
Almonds are rich in vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Almonds are also a significant source of protein and fiber, while being naturally low in sugar.
Greek yogurt can have twice as much protein as regular yogurt. The extra protein will help you feel full and leave you feeling satisfied. Lactose-intolerant people who are unable to eat regular yogurt may be able to tolerate Greek yogurt because it has a lower lactose content, only 6g of lactose per cup vs. 17g in regular yogurt.
