#19 Yogurt

Yogurt is a good friend of our digestive system. It contains bacteria that help improve digestion and reduce body fat if consumed regularly. For that, it is known as one of the healthiest dairy products out there. Careful, though, as many varieties of yogurt are high in sugar, so be mindful of what you choose. Personally, I would recommend sticking to Greek yogurt - a classic that never gets old.

#20 Potatoes

potatoes

Potatoes contain valuable nutrients, so featuring those on your grocery list is highly recommended. They also contain plenty of vitamin A, which can improve your eyesight. So if you’re looking for some carb calories along with some valuable vitamins and nutrients, potatoes are the way to go!
