Sugar Snap Peas – These peas are crunchy, sweet and oh-so-versatile. Not only do they make a great healthy snack when eaten raw with dip or hummus, but they also make a tasty addition to salads or stir fries. They contain plenty of antioxidants, vitamins B1, B2 and B6 as well as vitamins A and K. Plus, if you need a bit of extra sweetness in your life, sugar snap peas are packed with natural sugars!
Strawberries – Strawberries are one of the most popular fruits around for good reason; how can you not love their juicy sweetness? Not only do strawberries taste great fresh off the stem (or straight out of your mouth!), but they also add a lot of flavor when added to smoothies or baked goods. As far as health benefits go, strawberries contain plenty of antioxidants which can help reduce inflammation throughout your body. Plus, they’re packed with vitamin C which helps boost immunity during cold season.
Sweet Potatoes – Everyone loves sweet potatoes. Whether you enjoy them mashed up with butter or roasted until crispy on the outside yet soft on the inside–there's no wrong way to eat ‘em! Sweet potatoes are high in fiber which helps keep you full longer while also providing essential vitamins like potassium. Plus, those same essential vitamins help lower blood pressure levels so enjoy an extra helping if you must–it’s good for your heart health!
Bananas – Bananas make everything better–from oatmeal to banana bread or even just sliced onto a bowl of cereal. Bananas provide an ample source of nourishment containing essential minerals like copper and manganese plus lots of vitamin B6 which helps boost energy levels throughout the day. Their natural sugars mean that bananas provide quick energy boosts when needed so don't leave home without one!
