Eat raw beets
Eat raw beets. Make a salad by combing the beet, olive oil, and lemon juice in a bowl. It's a great source of betaine and folate.
Use red wine vinegar and oil
Trade the store-bought salad dressing for homemade. Drizzle a little red wine vinegar and canola oil over your salad. The vinegar contains antioxidants, and the canola oil will help lower cholesterol.
Top your sandwich with a piece of cabbage, or add shredded cabbage to a salad. 1 cup of cabbage contains only 22 calories.
Eat a guava
Put guava on your shopping list. The antioxidants in guava help fight prostate cancer. It is also high in fiber and the rind has more vitamin C than the flesh of an orange.
Drink green tea
Drink 4 8-ounce cups of green tea a day to help fight prostate cancer cells, arthritis, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Sprinkle cinnamon on your oatmeal or in your coffee. Studies show that adding cinnamon to your diet may help reduce your blood sugar level and cholesterol.
Grab a beer
Grab a beer. Studies show that drinking 1 beer a day (and no more) can lower your risk of developing kidney stones. Now you know that you are getting enough power foods in your diet.
