iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

17 of 21

Dates

This sweet Middle Eastern delight is not only rich in vitamins and minerals (like calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium and potassium – all of which work together to help lower blood pressure) but its fiber content also helps to improve your digestive system, Batayneh says. “A perfect pairing would be to enjoy two dates stuffed with two almonds each for a salty sweet treat. Because dates are high in fiber, the natural sugars won’t send your blood sugar soaring, and enjoying them with almonds will also help stabilize your blood sugar,” she says.
