Re­mem­ber Your ABCs

Eating Naturally - - What To Eat -

Red ap­ples (your “As”) con­tain quercetin, which can help boost your im­mune sys­tem. De­light your kids with an ap­ple sand­wich by us­ing a melon corer to re­move the ap­ple’s core and cut­ting one half-inch off the top and bot­tom of the ap­ple. Then cut hor­i­zon­tally into slices that look like donuts with holes in the mid­dle. Spread peanut but­ter and some gra­nola in the mid­dle of the two slices for an ex­tra crunch! Don’t for­get your “Bs” and “Cs”: broc­coli, cau­li­flower, and car­rots, of course. Th­ese veg­eta­bles are rich in an­tiox­i­dant vi­ta­mins. Broc­coli and cau­li­flower both have glu­tathione, a pow­er­ful an­tiox­i­dant that helps fight off in­fec­tion. Car­rots are chock-full of beta-carotene, a valiant fighter against bac­te­ria that try to en­ter the blood­stream and cause trou­ble.
