Great Foods to Consume

Great Foods to Consume

As you look at preparing foods for upcoming holiday dinners, here are some foods with a lot of nutritional value to consider.

Sweet potatoes are a great vegetable. They are an excellent source of carotenoids, vitamin C, potassium and fiber. 

Mangoes are a very good source of vitamin C and vitamin A. They also contain potassium and fiber.

Unsweetened Greek Yogurt has twice as much protein of ordinary yogurt – about 17 grams in 6 ounces. This product because it is strained is thick and creamy.
Butternut Squash can be easily baked in the microwave or oven. It is a great way to get lots of vitamin A and C and fiber.
Garbanzo Beans are rich in protein, fiber, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc. Garbanzo beans are very versatile. After the beans are rinsed and drained, they can be added to salads, stews, soups or mix with a whole grain.
