Natural Peanut Butter
We are addicted to peanut butter! We put it in our shakes, our fruit, well, yo get the idea! But all peanut butter is NOT created equal! The major difference between the standard everyday jar and natural options shows up in the number and list of ingredients. Natural peanut butter contains at least 90% peanuts with no artificial sweeteners, colors or preservatives. Many labels will list only dry roasted peanuts (that’s what you’re looking for). So next time, before you buy, read the label!
They are an amazing fruit, packed with mystery and power. Pomegranate juice contains higher levels of antioxidants than most other fruit juices. The seeds contain a high number of antioxidants, which help protect the body against inflammation and free radical damage. Even better, the seeds help you feel fuller (which helps with weight loss), and they are very tasty. It’s a win-win!
Broccoli is a good source of vitamins C and K and is beneficial as a source of folate. The big winner part other than taste is the massive amount of fiber per serving.

Hint: Makes for a great snack with easy homemade hummus.
Ginger can settle an upset stomach but also works with weight loss. It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects for the body. It’s become very popular lately and is low calorie.
