Bananas: A convenient source of the potassium your body needs to maintain proper heart function. It also regulates normal blood pressure and is beneficial for your kidneys and bones.

Potatoes: Whether it is a sweet potato, purple potato or even a white potato, each has unique health benefits. Potatoes are a rich source of dietary fiber. Plus, they are a great source of vitamin B6, potassium, copper, vitamin C, manganese, phosphorus, and pantothenic acid. Potatoes also contain an abundance of minerals or compounds that have antioxidant qualities.

Popcorn: The best option for snacking is popcorn. Sorry but microwaved, flavored popcorn doesn’t count. Go for the plain popcorn kernels, which have high fiber content and are loaded with health friendly antioxidants. And popcorn is extremely light on calories. Sea salt, cinnamon, Parmesan cheese and oregano are all healthy options that you can add if you ever want more flavor.
