iVillage.com: Dr. Oz's Healthiest Superfoods -- How Many Are In Your Shopping Cart?

Supermarket Staple #4. Bananas

Why It's a Must Have: Bananas are often mislabeled as a ‘fattening fruit’ but don’t believe that erroneous myth. Not only are these fat-free, 100-calorie fruits easy to eat on the go, but they are a good source of vitamins A and C, fiber and potassium – which could help slim you down. “Bananas are a fantastic source of potassium, which can help reduce blood pressure and prevent water retention,” says Palinski.

Budget Bonus: Good news – you can skip the organic versions of this fruit without worry. “Bananas are one of the least ‘dirty’ fruits,” says Palinski. “Save even more money by purchasing bananas that are still slightly green, since they will last longer.”
