Why It's a Must Have: Kalamata olives are another one of my top 10 power foods, says Metsovas. A great source of healthy, monounsaturated fat, olives keep you feeling full longer and are loaded with phytonutrients that could help reduce dangerous inflammation and help fight off heart disease.

Budget Bonus: Stock up when this item is featured in your store’s weekly ad circular since unopened cans or jars last a long time.
