Add blueberries to breakfast cereal or yogurt, or make blueberry pancakes. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, as well as containing high levels of potassium and vitamin C. They can lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, and are also anti-inflammatory.
Substitute brown rice and whole grain pasta
Substitute brown rice for white; or whole grain pasta for refined flour pasta or potatoes. Rice is versatile and can be added to soups and stews, used as a side dish, or in casseroles. Whole grains lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and obesity.
Drink tea. Black or green, hot or iced, tea is a great source of antioxidants. Instead of sugary soda, have unsweetened iced tea. Green tea contains ECGC, which is not only a powerful antioxidant, but can also inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
Add almonds to salads, yogurt, rice, or cereal. Almonds have more calcium than any other nut. One serving of almonds provides half of the Recommended Dietary Allowance of vitamin E.
Drink vegetable juice
Drink vegetable juice. The juice has most of the nutrients in the original vegetables and is an easy way to keep vegetables in your diet.
