Avocado: Although avocado is a high fat food, it is also rich in fibre that can contribute to weight loss, reduce blood sugar spikes and promotes anti-inflammatory properties.
Olive oil: It has the ability to protect “bad” LDL cholesterol particles from oxidation, which also helps improving the functions of blood vessels.
Salmon: It is well-known rich source of omega-3 and protein, which can help body healing, protecting bone health, as well as maintaining muscle mass during weight loss.
Chia seed: It is considered as a low-quality omega-3 source since they are mostly ALA. It only becomes beneficial when ALA is converted into the active forms of EPA and DHA, however, humans are very inefficient at this conversion.
