Notes

1) Avocados contains more potassium than bananas and it is loaded with heart-healthy fatty acids.

2) Spinach is rich in iron, calcium and magnesium.

3) Coconut water may reduce blood pressure and support heart health.

4) Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties and may lower blood sugar.

5) Vitamin B6 from bananas is easily absorbed by your body and a medium-sized banana can provide about a quarter of your daily vitamin B6 needs.
