Even superfoods can use a boost. These easy additions and subtractions can transform three of your everyday go-to meals—smoothies, sandwiches, and salads—into nutrient powerhouses.
When the original supergreen crashed on the scene, everything was kale, yeah! But since it’s been added to everything from smoothies to brownies (note: this is not a thing people, stop it!), we don’t blame you if you’re saying kale, meh.
But its superstar status isn’t for nothing. “What makes kale so great for you is that it is loaded in vitamins like A, K, C, and Bs that help to keep your bones healthy, eyes healthy, boost your immunity, give you energy, and fight off free radicals in the body that cause damage and premature signs of aging,” says Brigitte Zeitlin, R.D., owner of BZ Nutrition. “Plus, it is a great source of minerals like manganese, copper, calcium, and iron—all important when it comes to keeping your muscles healthy and bones strong.” It’s also chock full of filling fiber.
That said, it’s just as important to down protein at breakfast: Unlike carbs, “our bodies can’t store protein, so it’s important to work it into every single meal,” says Karen Ansel, R.D. What’s more, this cell-building macronutrient is key for preventing mid-morning hunger pangs. “When you eat protein your gut releases satiety hormones that tell your brain that you're full and have had enough to eat,” she explains.
Brigitte Zeitlin, R.D., recommends aiming for at least 15 grams at your first meal of the day to stay full, focused, and satisfied until lunch. Here are a few simple swaps, additions, and tweaks to increase your morning protein intake.

Bloated? Try these snacks to help alleviate bloating! But while some foods bring on the bloat, others can tame it.

"Probiotics are good bacteria that help restore balance in the gut, which in turn will help regulate digestion and fight against unwanted bloating," says Lisa Moskovitz, R.D.
It isn't enough to just "exercise and be healthy", there are different factors that make help with growth.
