Strawberry avocado farro salad
Several studies have linked foods high in the phytonutrient anthocyanins to decreased belly fat. Chokeberries, which are rich in anthocyanins, may help decrease belly fat accumulation in rats, a 2015 animal study found. And while you likely won't find chokeberries at your local market, you will find anthocyanin-rich foods like strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
