Most people think that color is key to healthy eating. Don’t eat white bread, white sugar, white rice: that’s the popular advice.

But there are white foods that are great for your health, too! Make sure that you load up on some of these the next time you’re here at Bliss Shurfine Food Mart:

  • Macadamia nuts: These tasty nuts are high in monounsaturated fats and contain protein and minerals (like calcium and iron).
  • Potatoes: Yes, believe it or not, white potatoes are good for you! They’re a good source of potassium and are high in Vitamin C and carotenoids.
  • Mushrooms: These tasty fungi are low-fat and low-calorie and high in B vitamins (like riboflavin and niacin).
  • Horseradish: It comes from the same family as cabbage and broccoli, and like them, horseradish contains calcium, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin C.
