The Best Foods for Injury Recovery

When you're hurt, these fat-fighting foods can do more than just help keep you lean. They'll also give your body the nutrients it needs to get on the mend quickly.

YOU NEED:
Protein to produce skin cells; vitamin C and zinc for collagen protection; iron to oxygenate blood; plus whole grains to calm inflamed tissue.

EAT:
A burger made from 95% lean beef (leaner meat has more protein and iron) on a whole grain bun, plus kiwi for dessert.
