These nutritious foods can build health, ward off disease, and taste wonderful!
Fatty fish—broiled, baked, or grilled—may lower triglycerides and blood pressure, increase good cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of clotting.
Whole grains are full of fiber, flavor, and texture. They may lower your risk of heart disease, Type II diabetes, and cancer.
Tomatoes practically burst with B and C vitamins, minerals, and lycopene, which may reduce your risk of cancer and heart attack.
Berries (such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, or raspberries) provide antioxidants, which may lower your risk of cancer and heart disease. They are also high in fiber and taste great!
Cruciferous & “leafy green” vegetables—cabbage, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, bok choy, and brussels sprouts—give you vitamins A and C, fiber and phytochemicals that may reduce your risk of cancer. They’re cholesterol-free, low in fat and calories too.
Soy is so beneficial you’ll want to find a palatable source—it may protect against cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
Fat-free, fortified dairy products provide protein, calcium, trace minerals, and vitamin D. They may help ward off osteoporosis, hypertension, stroke, and colon cancer.

Green tea provides flavonoids, which may prevent heart problems and certain cancers.
