Add these super foods to your diet to give you the nutrients and antioxidants to help fight off cancer and other diseases.
Step 1: 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.
TIP: Cooking beets will decrease their antioxidant power, so stick with raw.
Step 2: 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.
Step 3: Eat cabbage Top your sandwich with a piece of cabbage, or add shredded cabbage to a salad. 1 cup of cabbage contains only 22 calories.
Step 4: 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.
Step 5: Drink green tea Drink 4 8-ounce cups of green tea a day to help fight prostate cancer cells, arthritis, and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
Step 6: Sprinkle cinnamon 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.
Step 7: 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.
FACT: Kidney stones are most common in men ages 40 and up.
