Superfoods are all the rage but everyday foods have the power to heal too.

If your fridge and pantry are stocked with basic healthy foods then you're on the right track. These kitchen staples not only help fill us up but they can heal common ailments and keep you in tip-top shape. Here's our pick of the ones to keep on hand.

Chillis good for weight loss

Many people shy away WHY from the mouth-burning experience of eating a chilli, but what if it promised to help you to burn kilojoules and shed fat? In research conducted at the University of Oklahoma, chillis and capsicum showed the potential to burn as many kilojoules as a 20-minute walk.

Chilis stimulate the metabolism, act as a natural blood thinner, and help release endorphins

[What the expert says] "Some research shows the capsaicin in chillies may help with weight loss by raising the amount of energy you burn after your meal," says dietitian Megan Alsford. "While more research is needed, they do make healthy food taste great, so give them a try."

Tip: Add some chilli to a bolognaise sauce, or add a kick to your morning by adding chilli to scrambled eggs.

Chicken Good for treating colds

Research shows that those WHY who eat chicken soup recovermore quickly from a cold. "It's believed that chicken soup acts as an anti-inflammatory and speeds up the movement of the mucus," says Alsford.

[What the expert says] "While the research on chicken soup and colds isn't extensive, chicken soup is still a healthy meal," says Alsford. "It's important to keep your fluids up when you have a cold, and chicken soup can provide a tasty and comforting way to hydrate," she says. "If you make your soup with loads of vegies such as carrots, celery and corn you'll also add to your vegetable intake."

Tip. Make a clear chicken broth. In a study at Penn State University, those who ate low-kilojoule soup before their main meal ate 20 per cent fewer kilojoules in total.

Eggs Good for brain health, weight loss

When study participants at WHY the University of Connecticut ate eggs for breakfast they consumed fewer kilojoules throughout the day. They're packed with omega-3 fats, which are important for brain development and are also a quality protein source to help kids' growth and development.

[What the expert says] "Eggs had a bad reputation in the past as they were thought to contribute to high cholesterol levels," says dietitian Clare Evangelista. "However, the Heart Foundation now states that it's fine to have up to six eggs per week."

In 1996, at the International Egg Commission (IEC) conference in Vienna, the members decided to celebrate World Egg Day on the second Friday in October
