Antioxidants help us for healthier life on many aspects like fighting against cancer and prevention of cancer and anti-aging. Here we have some instructions for using antioxidants in your diet to create vitality and health.
- Understand that antioxidants are especially concentrated in fruits and vegetables. Increasing the amount of fruits and vegetables in your diet means more of the good things instead of the bad.
- Aim to include at least one fruit and vegetables served at every meal. Meals should be low in fat and carbohydrates, enriched with fruit and vegetables, which are a substantial part of calories. Swapping a traditional side dish for a fruit or vegetable would be a good choice. The essential rule of the ideal nutrition is that the more colorful the fruit, the richer it is in antioxidants.
- Snack on these healthy staples. Change snacks to fresh fruits like apples, bananas, kiwi and berries and crunchy raw veggies with dip. Blend a fruit smoothie, rather than preparing a milkshake. Have a glass of pomegranate juice rather than a bottle of cola.
- Eat less bread and starches such as potatoes and rice to save room for fruit and vegetables.
- Choose canned, dried or frozen fruit if you can not get fresh. Eat the fruit alone or incorporate it into dishes to create more ways to eat the good stuff.
