Keep the following foods on your shopping list when you go shopping for guaranteed servings of antioxidants, essential minerals and disease-fighting compounds
Yellow and Orange Vegetables
Pumpkin, sweet potato and squash not only provide fibre-rich carbohydrates that keeps you feeling full longer, they also provide a boost of the powerful antioxidant beta-carotene to protect against cancer and ageing.
Their disease-fighting phytochemicals boost immunity, prevent cancer and protect the heart. Berries are lower in sugar than many fruits, so less likely to cause insulin spikes.
These provide some of the highest quality of protein and can contain up to 30 times the nutrient content of homegrown organic vegetables. Alfafa, mung beans, wheatgrass, pea, brocolli, and lentil sprouts are good options.
