If you’re picking and choosing the types of foods that are really good for you – here's a list of some of the best.

  • Greek Yogurt

    The texture is a little thicker than regular yogurt, but it has lots of calcium – more than milk and more protein than regular yogurt. Yogurt helps in digestion and at the same time helps in weight loss.

  • Dark Chocolate

    In moderation, just a couple of ounces of dark chocolate a day helps blood flow to the brain. Helps improve concentration and mood too.

  • Asparagus

    High in folate and trypophan. Low levels of folate are linked to depression. Trypophan produces serotonin in the brain. Serotonin influences mood, appetite, sleep, memory and learning.

  • Tomatoes

    High in lycopene. It’s an anti-oxidant that helps protect the brain. And if you eat them with olive oil it improves the absorption of lycopene in the body.

  • Eggs

    If you’re looking to lose weight, eggs is one of the best ways. A 2008 study found people who ate eggs for breakfast lost more weight because eggs keep you fuller, longer. They also have large amounts of protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, Zinc and Vitamin B.
