Bananas


Here's another food that makes it onto many healthy-eating lists - and for good reason. Bananas are packed with nutrients, including potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin C. They may help lower the risk of colorectal and breast cancer. And they're conveniently packaged in a peel for on-the-go snacking. If you don't love the taste of bananas, spread on a tablespoon of peanut butter or add them with other fruits into a smoothie.

Try this Banana Cherry Smoothie recipe.
