The Best & Yummiest Vegetables That Speed Up Your Metabolism


As someone who has struggled with a low metabolism my whole life, I’ve certainly had my fair share of weight fluctuations. And even though I see that as something completely normal, I know how frustrating it can be. Especially with the warmer months approaching. I would always get desperate for a quick solution. However, I’ll have to disappoint you — there is no quick fix. The only thing that has truly changed my body is a more holistic lifestyle. So, if you want to supercharge your weight loss journey, then here are some vegetables that speed up metabolism like it’s nobody’s business.


Popeye was onto something when he guzzled down cans of spinach. I know — this was just a genius way to trick kids into eating their greens. However, if there’s one particular green that everyone should be eating then it’s definitely spinach. This nutrient-rich leafy green is loaded with iron, magnesium, and vitamins A and C – all of which are essential for a healthy metabolism. Plus, spinach is low in calories but high in fiber, making it the perfect addition to any weight loss meal plan. And there are so many ways to make it! Salads, smoothies, as a side dish or my favorite — spinach pie.


Kale is another leafy green that’s not only packed with metabolism-boosting nutrients like vitamins A, C, and K, but it’s also rich in antioxidants and fiber. Kale’s high fiber content helps to regulate digestion and keep you feeling full and satisfied. But of course, eating raw kale won’t exactly satisfy your hunger cravings. However, there are so many amazing recipes to choose from. Kale chips, soups, stews, pasta or smoothies! Or my favorite — garlic, vegan butter, rice, and kale mix! Kale is also rich in protein which helps support your fitness journey.


Broccoli is another vegetable superhero that I just can’t get enough of. It’s packed with nutrients like vitamin C, folate, and fiber, as well as sulforaphane – a compound that helps to activate enzymes in the body that promote detoxification and fat burning. Plus, broccoli is low in calories but high in water content, making it a great choice for weight loss and overall health. You can steam it, roast it, or stir-fry it — broccoli is as versatile as a vegetable can be! I even love to blend it and transform it into a delicious and hearty cream soup.

Bell Peppers

Add a pop of color – and flavor – to your meals with bell peppers! These vibrant veggies are rich in metabolism-boosting nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin B6, and antioxidants, which help to support healthy metabolism and promote fat burning. Bell peppers are also super low in calories but filling at the same time. Whether you slice them up for snacking, toss them into salads and stir-fries, or stuff them with your favorite fillings, bell peppers are a versatile and delicious way to support your metabolism and overall health.
