3 Of The Top 5 Functional Foods

Asked to name the top 5 functional whole foods, a panel of experts from the New York State Dietetic Association chose salmon for high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, oats for the powerhouse nutrient's impressive fiber content, antioxidant-rich blueberries for their ability to combat free radicals, low-fat milk for calcium and vitamin D, followed by low-fat yogurt. Only brands of yogurt providing live, active cultures made the list.

The Bigger Picture: If you want to put together a potent package of these powerful functional foods, mix a cup of fresh blueberries in a blender with 8 ounces of cold skim milk and one scoop of milk chocolate flavored Natural 100% Oats & Whey. Then grind in a couple of ice cubes to enhance the consistency. The result is more than great-tasting and easy to drink. It's packed with 8 grams of fiber, plenty of protein along with a cascade of vitamins, antioxidants, calcium and more!

Sounds delish! I'll have to get some cohlocate protein powder. I use vanilla. Here's another fab recipe for a fellow smoothie lover:banana, yogurt, vanilla protien powder, handful fresh spinach, oats, raspberries or other berry of choice-I prefer them frozen, and a cup of juice or skim milk. If you freeze both the bananas and the berries, you don't need to add ice!
