Peach: research shows that the anthocyanins, chlorogenic acids, quercetins, and catechins found in peaches can lower your risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease.
Banana: contains high levels of tryptophan, which your body converts to serotonin, a neurotransmitter linked to happiness and contentment.
Granola: the exact benefits will depend on the exact ingredients in your granola. Oats typically appear, offering up plenty of fiber and iron, which are essential for healthy digestion and good energy levels. Meanwhile, the nuts and seeds often found in granola deliver heart-healthy unsaturated fats.
Almond milk: the unique combination of nutrients found in almonds—plenty of protein, fiber, and monounsaturated fats, along with vitamin E and magnesium—make them a super heart-healthy food.
Cinnamon: is a rich source of cinnamaldehyde, which can improve your metabolism, fight various kinds of infections, and prevent tooth decay and bad breath.
Nutmeg: is loaded with a compound that has potent pain-relieving properties similar to menthol. Eating nutmeg can reduce pain related to injuries as well as chronic inflammation.
MCT oil: your liver converts the fatty acids in MCT oil into ketones. By including a dose in your morning smoothie, you can jumpstart your metabolism.
