1 – Extra virgin olive oil – Yummy in salads and marinades, and drizzled on top of anything from salmon to chicken
2 – Flavored Vinegar – Use with olive oil as a dressing on your salad! Plus, vinegar helps open up blood vessels to improve blood flow.
3 – Course sea salt – Yes, the CDC recommends limiting your salt intake. But be careful, because regular salt is often prepared and processed.
4 – Beef or chicken broth – Simmer it to sip on throughout the day, or to sauté vegetables, and create a base for sauces
5 – Garlic cloves – Mince some up and use to add flavor to salads, soups or stir fry without adding any unhealthy fats or processed ingredients.
6 – Fresh lemons – Squeeze in your morning ginger tea, or over seafood or chicken for a refreshing flavor.
7 – Frozen kale – They stay crisp even after thawing, and they’re a quick add-in to scrambled eggs, smoothies or stir fry.
8 – Frozen berries – Full of antioxidants and a sweet addition to any protein shake or oatmeal.
9 – Canned tomatoes – Make a simple sauce by crushing them and adding in fresh herbs and simmer until warm!
10 – Sriracha – Adds spice to rice, stir fry, or in a salad dressing
11 – Dijon Mustard – A low-calorie way to add flavor to sauces and dips
12 –  Plain Almond Butter – Almonds have less saturated fat than peanuts!
13 – Ground chicken and turkey – These sources of lean protein help you reduce your saturated fat intake, compared to ground beef.
14 – Shrimp – Four large shrimp are only 30 calories, and they are virtually fat-free. Include a few in tacos, salads or bake them.
15 –  Plain Greek Yogurt – Creamy, low-cal, and packed with 18 grams of protein in a 6-oz serving
16 – Eggs – Six grams of protein for only 70 calories! Whip up a few with your favorite veggies for a morning frittata.
17 – Canned Olives – Perfect when you’re craving something salty! Ten olives have only 50 calories.
18 – Beans – An inexpensive source of both protein and fiber.
19 – Fresh Herbs – Hello, antioxidants! Having a fresh supply of cilantro, basil, and rosemary gives life to your dishes!
20 – Dark Chocolate – Keep a square on hand for cravings, because dark chocolate has disease-fighting polyphenols.
