The following foods are low in calories, nutrient-dense, and require many calories just to be digested. This qualifies them as “free foods” that can be eaten in large amounts to help you stay full and help you to achieve your best healthy life!
- Leafy Greens
- Bok Choy
- Collard Greens
- Brussels Sprouts
- Snow Peas
- Green Beans
There are many other foods that could be included in this list, but I wanted to highlight foods that can easily be found in a typical market in the United States. Most of the foods listed are seasonally discounted in local grocery stores, so they can also be fairly affordable if you shop in-season.
*Always ensure the foods you add to your diet are appropriate for any health conditions you may have, and check with your health provider before making any major dietary changes.*
