3. Lettuce- 95% water
ceberg and other types of lettuce are about 95 percent water and practically calorie-free, making them a great fill-you-up food.
4. Hearts of Palm- Great source of protein!
These flavorful stalks contain protein, vitamin A, folic acid and almost no fat. A half cup has 115 calories. Hearts of palm earn their place on your plate because they’re a good source of potassium, which is important for heart and nerve cell function and blood pressure regulation.
5. Radishes- Only 24 calories!
A cup of these spicy bulbs has a mere 24 calories and contains potassium and vitamin C. Most importantly, radishes are moisture- and fiber-rich. Fiber is key for keeping our digestive tract healthy and ferrying the bad cholesterol (LDL) out of our system.
