Bananas are a potassium rich food with fiber that helps fight against heart disease and reduces the risk of stroke.

Carrots are a good resource of beta-carotene, they help fight against cardiovascular disease, and cancer prevention. They are delicious raw, steamed, or juiced.

Nuts are great snack foods, you can grab a handful and eat them on the go. Nuts are healthy to eat and can help reduce your weight by eating a few ounces a day as your healthy snack food choice.
