1 Broccoli

Use it raw in a salad or as a side dish cooked in butter and with cheese melted over it (easy to do in the microwave).

2 Spinach

Use it for a salads, soups, wraps, lasagna or egg dishes.

3 Healthy Cereal

These may sound a bit boring, but do you want all of that sugar? No. Cereals such as Cheerios, Shredded Wheat, Raisin Bran or Kashi can be livened up with some canned fruit on top.

4 Oatmeal

Throw it in the crockpot with some raisins and water on HIGH for 4 hours. Very delicious!

5 Skim Milk

Skim milk has less saturated fat with same amount of calcium.

6 Low-fat Cottage Cheese

This is a wonderful source of calcium and protein. For added flavor, put some canned peaches on top.

7 Cheese

Obviously, it's a good source of calcium. Melt some with your scrambled eggs for yumminess.

8 Eggs

There are so many ways to prepare eggs, such as omelets, scrambled, sunny side up, etc. They are a good source of protein.

9 Tuna in Water

Obviously it's good for tuna salad sandwiches, but also on saltines or a topping for salad.

10 Lean Beef

Buy 95% lean to save fat and calories.

11 Salad Dressing

Buy the salad dressing you like. This way, you will be motivated to have more salads in your diet.

12 Canola Oil

Olive oil is the best, but expensive. Vegetable oil is cheap but not healthy. Canola is in the middle.

13 Red Wine Vinegar

Combined with canola oil, red wine vinegar makes a healthier and tastier salad dressing alternative!
