  3. Apples
    They are full of fiber which helps in lowering blood cholesterol from the body and glucose levels. They are full of Vitamin C which keeps the blood healthy by soaking up extra iron from the body.
  4. Sweet Potatoes

These foods digest slowly, thus leading to a gradual rise in blood sugar levels, keeping you full for a longer period of time. They are full of Vitamin C, fiber, potassium, antioxidants but yet again the key in eating potatoes lies in moderation and healthy cooking methods.
