Blackberries

Blackberries’ health benefits are incredibly versatile. Like many other berries, the fruit is rich in vitamin C as well as antioxidants known as bioflavonoids.

Beyond that, eating blackberries can aid with digestion and staying alert, and tightens tissue, leading to younger-looking skin. There are around 62 calories in a single serving of the berries.

Lettuce

Most types of lettuce — whether it’s romaine or iceberg — only have about 10 to 2o calories per serving. And although lettuce won’t add a lot of protein to your diet, it will add plenty of vitamins and nutrients like folate, iron, and vitamins A and C.

Oranges

Most people know oranges for their vitamin C content, but the citrus fruit touts multiple other benefits. Since vitamin C is crucial in collagen production, oranges help keep skin free of damage and looking good. It’s also low in calories; a medium-sized orange has about 80 calories.

And if you’re not eating that white stuff under an orange’s skin — pith — you should start. Pith contains a lot of fiber, which helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Strawberries

There’s more vitamin C in one serving of strawberries than there is in one orange. In addition, strawberries are also bursting with polyphenols, a type of antioxidant.

Strawberries are also a good source of potassium and fiber, and they’re fat-free, sodium-free, and cholesterol-free, which makes them healthy for the heart. One cup of the fruit only has around 50 calories.

Honeydew melon

Honeydew melon has only slightly more calories per serving than cantaloupe (64), and the majority of these calories come from the 14 grams of natural sugar the fruit provides.

Honeydew also contains over half of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, as well as copper, which is crucial for healthy skin.
