Cabbage is very underrated, and it shouldn't be. It’s nutritious, and if prepared well, unforgettably delicious too.

6. Whole Eggs

For a while, eggs were feared for being high in cholesterol but they are becoming more popular now. Eggs are nutrient-dense, and nearly all those nutrients are found in the yolk, so make sure to keep the yellow in.

7. Salmon

Protein is an essential part of any weight-loss plan. Salmon is full of high-quality protein, healthy fats, and iodine, which helps your thyroid function properly.

8. Nuts

Various nuts are high in fat yet provide you with protein, fiber, and various plant compounds that benefit a healthy heart. Be mindful when taking handfuls, and make sure to grab the unsalted choices.

9. Carrots

This orange vegetable is great because it is a vegetable and is rather sweet. Win-win! A cup of carrots is only 45 calories and is full of vitamin A, fiber, and vitamin C. Highly recommended. You may even try juicing carrots to spruce up your smoothies.

10. Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt is packed full of protein, riboflavin, calcium, and vitamin B12. Avoid standard yogurt as it doesn't have the health benefits of Greek yogurt.
