Tip #1: Stir 2 tspns of ground flaxseed into your cereal, smoothies, or soup to sneak in a punch of omega-3 essential fatty acids and about 2 extra grams of fiber.
Tip #2: Eating some healthy fat with vegetables increases your body's ability to absorb fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K. Add some diced avocados to your salad of leafy greens and tomatoes. You'll get the fat and vitamin E from the avocados and vitamins A and K from the tomatoes.
Tip #3: Sprinkle 1 heaping tablespoon of brewer's yeast over plain popcorn for extra nutrients, as well as chromium, which can help regulate blood sugar and metabolism. It'll taste like sharp cheese and ads just 30 calories. Snack on 3 cups of popcorn for just 123 calories. Much less than a medium buttered movie popcorn - 1,200 calories. EEK!!!!
Tip #4: Add carrot shreds to your favorite meat loaf recipe for a shot of beta-carotene and fiber.
