Berries

Berries

Red raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries are fiber-rich fruits with just 50 calories per cup. They’re also among the most antioxidant-rich foods you can eat. Preliminary research shows that berries may contain certain flavonoids that increase production of adiponectin, a hormone that stimulates fat burning. In addition, eating strawberries with meals has been shown to help stabilize blood sugar and insulin levels and decrease markers of inflammation and LDL cholesterol. Top cereal or yogurt with berries, or try them in this zesty, minty treat.
