The type of cherry you choose is important. It is the tart cherry that fights inflammation. The darker the cherry the better. If the taste is too bitter for your liking when eating them out of hand, consider baking them in a pie or cobbler. You can have your desert and fight inflammation too.
I have to admit that before a few months ago, we never ate cabbage. I always thought of it as the stink vegetable. That was before I found out how tasty and easy to prepare cabbage is. Simply boil it and shred it for a great side vegetable. or, if you prefer, turn it into cole slaw and use it up with sandwiches for the week. Either way, you’ll get plenty of substances that will fight off bacteria and lower your cancer risk.
Did you know that artichokes are the super vegetables of antioxidant power? Beside lowering your risk for disease, they also have anti-aging properties and they boost your immunity! Whoo hoo, you can’t beat that. Make sure that you include artichokes in your diet on a regular basis. Your body (and your family) may thank you later.
Of course your diet should include lots of other healthy foods, too, to make sure that your body gets all of the nutrition it needs.
