Toma­toes: A tomato a day may keep heart disease at bay. Toma­toes are rich in potas­sium, vitamin C, and ly­copene – a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant that pro­tects heart and blood ves­sels against dam­age. Add them to your sal­ads and casseroles, and cook tomato-based dishes like home­made soup. Straw­ber­ries, cran­ber­ries and rasp­ber­ries: They are loaded with an­tiox­i­dants, which have been shown to re­duce the risk of heart at­tack by 32 per cent, by pre­vent­ing the build-up of plaque in ar­ter­ies. Con­sume one cup three times a week.
