Also known as Mexican husk tomatoes, tomatillos are a staple of Mexican cuisine. (If you’ve ever had salsa verde, you’ve had a tomatillo!) Low in calories but relatively high in fiber, tomatillos are a great way to add volume to smoothies while still keeping things light. Additionally, tomatillos include niacin, a naturally occurring B vitamin that helps cells turn food into energy — an important aspect of metabolism. At only 103 calories per serving, this low cal breakfast has enough vitamins to keep you going all day long!
