I learned today that you can't get antioxidants from supplements only from the foods you eat.
1. Chia Seeds - Who would have known you can consume these. These are the seeds used in making Chia pets.The site GET CHIA LLC even offers free shipping, just in case you can't find these locally.The site also features recipes. I have never had a Chia Pet....maybe I will now.
2. Black Rice. This rice will turn dark purple after cooked due to the anthocyanin antioxidant content. It also supplies minerals including iron. Look for black rice at your local grocery store or an Oriental supermarket.
4. Teff - a nutrient fiber. This is a gluten free whole grain which will add to your diet, fiber, protein, calcium and iron. A mere 1/4 cup supplies 6 grams of fiber. I'm thinking of adding Teff when I bake quick breads or muffins.
Collagen which in turn will help your skin look younger. This green power food also supplies fiber and folic acid.
here and take charge of your health by adding some or all of these to your diet.
So what good foods are you planning to eat during 2011?
Happy New Year to all!
