Working eggs into your healthy eating plan helps keep you energized as you lose and maintain your weight. High in protein, rich in vitamins and minerals (and just 70 calories a pop) eggs are a popular healthy option with NuMi users.

Hard boil a dozen eggs at the beginning of the week for a ready-to-eat snack that you can grab out of the refrigerator when hunger strikes. Less common, but just as awesome, eggs work seamlessly into heart-healthy lunches and dinners. (Skinny Avocado Egg Salad Sandwich, we’re looking at you.)

4. Nonfat Yogurt

One weight-friendly food to always keep on hand? A tub of nonfat yogurt. It’s not only low in calories, but it’s also high in calcium and potassium.

Get creative with how you eat yogurt. Add some to a smoothie, whip up a healthy dip for fruit, make frozen yogurt pops, use in place of heavier ingredients in sauces and more! Try it in this recipe for Fruit on a Stick with Yogurt Dip.

5. Milk (Nonfat or Skim)
