ALMOND MILK: Unfortified almond milk is a good source of vitamin E & calcium, many varieties are often fortified with vitamins A, D, & B12, riboflavin, & zinc.
BANANA: A great source of vitamin B6, bananas also contain moderate amounts of potassium, vitamin C, and manganese.
PINEAPPLE: Rich in vitamins, enzymes, and antioxidants. They may help boost the immune system, build strong bones and aid indigestion. Also, despite their sweetness, pineapples are pretty low in calories.
BABY SPINACH: Loaded with vitamin K (1 cup provides over 180% of your recommended daily intake) as well as vitamins A & C.
PUMPKIN SEEDS: Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein, iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and potassium.
