Food has the power to transform the body, if we make the right choices. So many foods out there spike our blood sugar and slow down our metabolism, that i wanted to create a list that you can actually use.
Tracy's Tip: 5 Fat Burning Foods
1. Flax, Chia or Hemp
Great Source of Omega-3, fiber and protein.
Action Step: Add the ground versions to your favorite smoothie or the full seeds to salads and stir-fry.
2. Leafy Greens
Kale, Spinach, Beet Greens, Arugula and many more.
Action Step: Integrate 1 leafy green a day into your diet. Get as many leafy greens local or organic, as many are a part of The Dirty Dozen
Best are Raspberries and Blueberries. Again, get organic OR local :)

4. Coconut Oil
This is a plant based medium chain saturated fat, This beneficial fat actually boosts metabolism.
Action Step: Add into smoothies, saute foods with it and even bake with it. Check this blog for many recipes or find me on Pinterest!
5. Grass Fed Beef
High in Vitamin B12 and CLA (Congegated linogated acid) that will allow the body to burn fat!
Action Step: You must, must, must buy grass fed organic beef. Traditional beef is filled with antibiotics and hormones. Make your favorite meatloaf, burgers or meat sauce. Look for some great recipes with a healthy breadcrumb recipe!
