Here are 5 foods that can help you get out of the routine:
1. Avocado oil
Avocado oil is pressed from the pulp that surrounds the avocado. It has a little bit of butter flavor. “Good” monounsaturated fats make up around 72% of its calories, just like olive oil.
The monounsaturated fats in avocado oil help protect your heart by lowering LDL cholesterol and improving your blood pressure. Avocado oil is also rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation.

4. Hemp seeds
Hemp seeds (also called hemp hearts) have a nutty flavor and a pine nut flavor. They have more protein than many other seeds: about 10 grams in 3 tablespoons.

5. Soba Noodles
These nutty Japanese noodles are made from buckwheat, a whole grain rich in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber and an antioxidant called rutin.
