Berries, such as blueberries, are rich in vitamin K and C, as well as potassium, manganese, and fiber.
Dark green, leafy vegetables — such as spinach, kale, and collards — are sources of vitamins A, C, E, and K, along with calcium, iron, and potassium.
They also provide as much protein as meat, but unlike meat, they do not contain saturated fat.
Fish containing omega-3 fatty acids includes salmon, albacore tuna, trout, and herring. This type of fat may lower the risk of heart disease and inflammation.
Whole grains include brown rice, whole oatmeal, quinoa, and whole grain barley. These foods contain fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, chromium, folate, and iron.
Nuts contain fiber and magnesium. Some nut and seed varieties, such as walnuts and flaxseeds, are sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
