Every day, we come across people discussing the health benefits of colourful vegetables and fruits, but not all are backed by strong research.

Green tea, raspberries and coconut milk are some of the time-tested and research-proven food items that can be trusted.

Here's a list of nutrient-rich food items that are beneficial to the body

Coconut milk: The healthy saturated fat in coconut comes from medium-chain triglycerides, a fatty acid your body prefers to burn rather than store.

Raspberries: Blueberries hog the spotlight, but raspberries are actually higher in fibre. One cup provides a whopping 8 grams. Experts say you probably get about half the fibre you should, and on a lower-carbohydrate diet, even less. Benefits include balanced blood sugar levels and reduced cravings.

Green tea: The popular beverage's fat-burning benefits are well known. But balance it with a healthy diet and exercise for better results. It also helps reduce stress.

Avocado: It is high in healthy mono-unsaturated fat and fibre and improves overall diet quality, nutrient intake, and reduced risk of metabolic syndrome. One cup contains 10 grams of appetite-curbing fibre -- the perfect food to top salads and burgers as a snack.
