12. Best: Fruit Salads
Countless studies have validated the claim that individuals who eat two or more servings of fruits every day tend to weigh much lesser than the individuals who eat no fruits whatsoever. Summer is the perfect season to pack your diet with succulently juicy berries and stone fruits.
We strongly advise you to pick out organic fruits from your nearest farmer’s market. In order to brim up your diet with antioxidants, vitamins and fiber, pick out plenty of purple, red and blue berries, along with apples as they will satiate your appetite and eliminate those unwanted pangs of hunger.
You can devour your fruits in salads, salsa recipes, juices, smoothies and countless other recipes that contain very few traces of calories.
13. Best: Zucchini
Zucchini is one of the healthiest and nutrient-packed recipes that Mother Nature has to offer humankind. Research reveals that along with being devoid of a single trace of cholesterol and unhealthy fats, it brims up the body with powerful doses of vitamin C.
It is the best vegetable to enjoy in summers, you can add it to salads, eat it as a raw snack, grilled, diced into sandwiches or burgers, and you can even bake delicious cheese-smeared zucchini fries. One cup of raw zucchini packs up no more than 20 calories, and provides the body a whopping 35% of its daily dosage requirement of vitamin C.
