Want to Fight Fine Lines from the inside-out?

Here are our Top 5 Picks for the most antioxidant rich, anti-aging foods to keep you looking lovely longer!

Antioxidants are the key to keeping your body healthy. They help to remove free radicals, which are essentially biological waste products that clog up your tissues and cause everything from heart-clogging plaque to the aging of your skin (ack!).

It’s no surprise that chips and ice cream aren’t on this list, but the foods here are easy to find, delicious, and versatile enough to keep yourself well armed in your everyday battle against aging! Try to add at least one of them to each of your meals every day.

1. BERRIES

Blueberries are the ultimate power punch of  free fighting antioxidants. Strawberries, raspberries, cranberries and blackberries are also packed with nutrients as well. Sprinkle a handful of berries either hot or cold cereal, a salad, or some yogurt for a berry good boost to your anti-aging routine!

2. BEANS

Small red beans are BIG in benefits!

Besides fighting free radicals, you’ll get the added benefit of protein and fiber to fuel your body and to fight off disease. Pinto, black, and kidney beans are all smart choices as well. Try this Black and Red Bean Chilito spice up your Line-Fighting routine!

3. TOMATOES

Is there anything this fruit can’t do?

Full of Vitamin A, C, and even potassium, the real super-power here is their Lycopene. This cancer crushing  antioxidant actually gets stronger when this fruit is cooked, which is why ketchup, tomato paste, and tomato sauce are even better than the “real thing”. Go ahead and add a little sauce to spice up your health!

4.ARTICHOKES

These pretty green globes are the most antioxidant rich vegetable (and only on this list!) in the farmer’s market!

They are also a good source of VitaminK to promote healthy blood and bones as well as Folate which is extra important for women of child bearing age. Just be sure to keep things healthy by steaming this veggie and not saturating it with butter! Try it with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of herbs insead.

5. DRIED PLUMS

Sounding much more distinguished than “prunes”, dried plums are a delicious snack that’s perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth!

Keep these as part of your diet to avoid looking like one when you get older by reaping in the benefits of a plethora of mind and body protecting powers 🙂

  1. I’d love to hear more about the actual health benefits of folates in artichokes–what do they do for health. I love the topic.

  2. I am going to have to go to Safeway and buy the entire supply of berries, artichokes, and beans for me and my office staff.
