05.27.2014

With summer just around the corner, it’s a time to revamp our diet and fill our picnic table with superfoods that taste great and burn off those extra winter calories.  We’ve put together a collage of 4 of our favorite fat-burning foods, accompanied by photography from our stock site Toothsome Images.  You can find more beautiful superfood by visiting our digital catalog here.

Salmon

Wild salmon, like this Alaskan Sockeye, is rich with omega-3s, vitamins and antioxidants – it’s the perfect lean protein and great for summer entertaining.

Quinoa

Quinoa is a great grain alternative – full of healthy protein, your body works hard to digest quinoa, which burns off extra calories.

Eggs

An egg’s golden yolk is full of Vitamin B12, and with its great taste and versatility as an ingredient, eggs also help combat cravings.

Multicolored Eggs

Green Tea

Green Tea is a great source of catechins and antioxidants, which tackle winter body fat.  And with a little natural caffeine you get an extra metabolic boost.
