EAT YOUR ANTIOXIDANTS
CHOOSING FOODS RICH IN DISEASE-FIGHTING ANTIOXIDANTS WILL BENEFIT YOUR HEART AND OVERALL HEALTH. NOW THERE ARE EVEN MORE WAYS TO EAT A NUTIRENT-SAVVY DIET.

FEELING BAD BECAUSE YOU DON'T LIKE FISH? Don't be. Salmon sardines andother fish are a finne source of omega.-3s, which are powerful antioxidants, but thee are plenty of other foods known to deliver healthful disease-fighting nutirents too. And the list keeps growing.

Consider the most colorful fruits and veggies, such as blueberries, red grapes, cranberries, oranges, tomatoes, brocoli, spinach and carrots. All are full of oxidant-busting alpha-linolenic acid. Now add mushrooms to that lineup. Researchers at Pennsylvania State University recently found that portobellos, ciminis, shitakes -- even your basic white mushrooms -- are natural source of Ergothioneine, a potent antioxidant also found in wheat germ. Saute the mushrooms in a little olive oil (known to have anti-inflammatory properties) with garlic (packed with healing benefits), and you've given your taste buds and your heart, eyes and joints a nice treat.

If wine is'nt your drink of choice, consider a cup of coffee or green tea; both contain a healthy dose of antioxidants. Yes, coffee! Sure, it's not a s good for you as eating your veggies, but a daily cup with a bowl of whole-grain cereal sprinkled with flaxseeds, grapes seeds or whet germ, an egg enhanced with omega-rich banana will give those errant oxidants (also called free radicals) a run for their money.

Why worry about oxidants in the first placet in the first place? Left on theri own, they beat up healthy cells, making you more susceptible to heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure and the effects of aging. That alone should be incentive to eat your antioxidants.
