#Antioxidants! Quick Tips To Eat More

Nutrition & Antioxidants! 

What did you picture first when you read the italicized word above? 

For me, I think of berries of all kinds but even some vegetables pack antioxidants. Choose your liking of: onions, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, and garlic, are all considered “anti-cancer;” which means these foods benefit the body through the protection to our cells.

Here are some quick #LEAN tips to eat more antioxidant rich foods:      

* Add antioxidant rich fruits (berries, grapes) to your plain or low-fat yogurt for breakfast or mid-afternoon snack.

* For lunch or dinner, add antioxidant rich vegetables (cabbage, artichoke, potatoes, and spinach) in a salad, soup, stew, vegetable casserole, or in a light sauté. 

* For all day snacking, build a nibbling tray (use a muffin tin or ice cube tray) and fill each section with an antioxidant rich food.

* During the high heat days of summer, infuse your water with berries (frozen or fresh). Frozen blueberries eaten alone are great for cooling off and they’re delicious!
