Avocado are a great source of healthy fats.  Research is showing it is the type of fat we eat is more important than the amount of fat we eat.  Avocados are full of healthy fats so try adding them where you can.  Avocado on toast for breakfast, in a sandwich with tuna or chicken for lunch and in a salad for dinner.  They’re a good replacement for spreads like butter and margarine.

Quinoa

 

Quinoa is a great source of protein and what is more it is complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids.  This is worth noting as usually only animal products contain complete protein.   If you are interested in losing weight a good way to start is to include protein at every meal – protein keeps you feeling full longer and gives you sustained energy.  Quinoa is great in salads, as a side dish instead of rice or pasta and can even be used to make a porridge.
