The Super Foods

A nutritional All-Star -- sweet potatoes are one of the best vegetables you can eat.

Sweet potatoes are loaded with carotenoids, vitamins C, potassium, and fiber.

Fat-free (Skim) or Low-fat Milk

This is an excellent source of calcium, vitamins, and protein with little or no artery-clogging fat and cholesterol. Soy milk can have just as many nutrients -- if the company adds them.
