Yogurt- Who knew there was such thing as good bacteria? Yogurt is loaded with
vitamins, calcium, and believe it or not GOOD bacteria. It helps with
digestions and the gastrointestinal system.
Avocados– There is such thing as good fats and avocados are one of the best
examples! Avocados are packed with fiber and protein and contain oleic acid
which is known to quiet hunger.
