- Rich in magnesium which is an essential nutrient for healthy bones.
- Avocados boost the same good health effects as olive oil.
Soy: This plant-based protein contains as much complete protein as meat, but much lower in fat – making it an excellent alternative in meatless meals.

- Fresh, canned dried, or frozen – soybeans, such as edamame, can easily be thrown into many meals – just think of them as the new green pea!
