|The Power of Fruit
|"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" turns out to be pretty accurate folk wisdom. We've all heard this, and remarkably the apple turns out ot be one of those perfect foods. Red Delicious, Granny, and Gaia apples have high concentrations of flavonoids, a group of phytochemicals that have powerful antioxidant capabilities.
Antioxidant protection against free radical damage is helpful in fighting cancer, aging, atherosclerosis and heart disease, and inflammation.
Other delicious fruit sources of flavonoids include blackberries, raspberries, plums, oranges, figs, raisins, and red grapes. Flavonoids are also found in pecans, walnuts, avocadoes, and of course, broccoli.
In a balanced food plan in which protein and carbohydrate are combined in every meal, fruits represent the carbohydrate component. A half-cup of cottage cheese and a half-cup of mixed berries is a perfectly balanced, highly nutritious meal!
The phytochemicals contained in fruits and vegetables provide an important boost to longevity and healthy living.
