Diet & Weight Management

1. Cauliflower

Broccoli is the relative that gets all the attention, but its paler cousin is no wallflower. Like other cruciferous veggies, cauliflower is a good source of vitamin C and fiber. Like broccoli, it also has a natural plant chemical called sulforaphane that may hold promise against cancer, according to early lab tests done in animals. Many other things also affect your cancer risk, but diet is one of the easiest to control.

2. Sardines

These small fish have big nutritional value. Sardines are a great source of good-for-you omega-3 fatty acids, and few foods are as high in vitamin B12. They're also rich in vitamin D, calcium's partner in bone strength.

3. Tempeh
You know about tofu, but have you tried tempeh? Tempeh is also made from soybeans, and it’s also packed with nutrients -- like protein, potassium, and calcium.

4. Beets

These brightly colored root vegetables look rough on the outside, but they're softer and sweeter once you cook them. Beets are high in antioxidants, which may help protect against cancer and other chronic diseases. Plus, their juice, which is rich in nitrates,has been found to lower blood pressure and increase blood flow to the brain. If you're an athlete, snacking on beets might even help improve your performance.
