First of all, I’m not usually one to promote low calorie foods, or low calorie eating to anyone.
In fact, I eat a good few calories myself each day and enjoy them liberally as fuel for my metabolism.
Yet, it can be easy to forget about simple, low-calorie foods that are actually full of benefits for your body and don’t taste like cardboard or rubber.
Wonder what they are?
Read on to find out my favorite low calorie foods that I eat in addition to all my coconut, nuts, seeds, avocados and oils.
Hey, a girl needs balance in her life, and on her plate, right?
I have to tell you, spinach is one of my favorite low calorie foods, and not just one of mine!
My McDonald’s loving brother also chooses spinach anytime he gets a salad and loves it on sandwiches.
Obviously, there’s something to this amazing green.
Spinach contains 5 grams of protein per cup with only 20 calories, no fat, and 2 grams of fiber.
It also has 20% of your daily iron, 30% your daily magnesium, and 100% of your daily Vitamin A requirements.Spinach also has 20% of your daily calcium requirements too, along with Vitamin C, B vitamins like folate, and lots of chlorophyll to keep your cells squeaky clean and healthy!
Plus, spinach has a rich, sweet, buttery taste unlike other, bitter greens.
Fresh or frozen, it makes a great food to use in smoothies, stir-fries, soups, eggs, sauteed with garlic, or use fresh spinach in salads, in whole grain wraps, or on a sprouted grain sandwich.
