It’s a bit of a challenge: how many antioxidant-rich foodstuffs and ingredients can you get into one day’s meal plan? There’s no easy answer – after all, all manner of wonderful foods are rich in antioxidants and no-one can include everything. But we thought, just for fun, that we’d have a shot at drawing up a meal plan that includes all the high-antioxidant products we sell at Naturally Good Food. We’re complementing them with fresh antioxidant-rich products, too, which you’ll have to source from elsewhere. If you’re in the mood for a food fight with your own free radicals, give it a whirl!
Green tea to drink.
Wild salmon with kale and carrots and a spoonful or two of kidney beans.
Mixed strawberries and grapes for dessert.
A couple of squares of dark chocolate.
Blackberry and elderberry crumble or pie for dessert.
To drink, a glass of antioxidant-rich red wine.
Will it work?
We wouldn’t anticipate immediate miracles! But if you eat like this on a regular basis, you could expect to reap some pretty impressive rewards. Research indicates that antioxidants will make your skin more youthful, smooth out your wrinkles, improve your eye health, loosen your joints and generally lessen your chances of developing all manner of unpleasant diseases.
(And if you’re still peckish before bedtime? Well, we didn’t manage to shoehorn pomegranates, elderberries or artichokes into that plan – so choose those for a quick snack…)antioxidants, blueberries, brown rice, cranberries, dark chocolate, free radicals, goji berries, green tea, kidney beans, muesli, organic apricots, organic prunes, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, turmeric, ultimate antioxidant meal plan, walnuts, whole grains
