BLUE, INDIGO AND VI­O­LET

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Life Made Easy Nutrition -

Blue­ber­ries, black­ber­ries and acai berries: Th­ese pack a punch of dark-coloured an­tiox­i­dant flavonoids, which im­prove blood flow to the brain and heart and en­able bet­ter blood clot­ting. Hav­ing th­ese fruits in your diet can im­prove your choles­terol lev­els and blood su­gar me­tab­o­lism, and help pre­vent high blood pres­sure. Best eaten raw, they can be added to smooth­ies or nat­u­ral yo­gurt for a heart-friendly break­fast. Pur­ple sweet pota­toes and cabbages: Th­ese have an­tiox­i­dants and are great scav­engers of free rad­i­cals, which cause cell dam­age. Steam the pur­ple sweet pota­toes or make sauer­kraut, a healthy side dish that goes well with roasted pork or tur­key, by slow-cook­ing pur­ple cab­bage with ap­ples and some cin­na­mon.
