Most of us assume that fierce discipline and strong willpower are the keys to keeping up a healthy diet. But cutting yourself a little slack may actually be a better route. New studies on self-compassion show that allowing room for mistakes results in smarter nutrition choices overall. Acknowledging that you may not be perfect allows you to move on from a flub. So let yourself off the hook for eating that one doughnut—it will keep you from scarfing down the whole box of a dozen later.

Green has long been the go-to color for super foods. But nutrition studies have recently shifted the spotlight to black veggies, fruits and grains. Try adding these three dark powerhouses to your diet to keep your body in tip-top shape.
Black Rice: With more fiber than brown or white rice, this variety helps you maintain a healthy weight by keeping you full for longer. It also has considerably higher amounts of vitamin E, which strengthens the immune system and protects cells from free radicals.
Blackberries: Loaded with powerful antioxidants called anthocyanins (the natural chemical that gives produce a dark hue), these berries can help to reduce inflammation.
Black Tea: Studies from Rutgers University suggest that theaflavins, antioxidants found in black tea, may speed your recovery from muscle soreness after an intense class or rehearsal.
