Whether they’re blueberries, strawberries, or even acai berries, they’re all very fiber-dense foods. This means that they will help your digestive system function well. They’re also full of cancer-fighting antioxidants.
If you’re diabetic or need help leveling out your blood sugar, make sure you’re getting plenty of cinnamon in your diet! Sneaky ways to eat it include: putting it in oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, or even in meat dishes.
Kale and Spinach
By eating kale and other leafy greens, you’re giving your body the fiber that it needs to function properly. They’re full of vitamin K, folate, vitamin C, iron, and magnesium.
