2. Avocados

Due to our nation becoming obsessed with low-fat and no-fat diets, these fruits give the body a healthy dose of monounsaturated fat. These fats also enable the body to absorb fat-soluble vitamins like A, E and K which are essential for body function.

3. Blueberries

It has anti-inflammatory properties which is so important for reducing inflammation in the arteries. The body cannot make this fatty acid so it is essential to get this through your diet... like eating salmon!

5. Sweet Potatoes
