The Peacekeepers We All Need!

Feb 15, 2024 | Digestive Health, Food as Medicine

This week, I want to chat about the peacekeepers YOU NEED in your body to ensure it stays healthy and resilient, which is what we all want, yes?

Our peacekeepers, aka  antioxidants do an amazing job at helping shield our cells from harmful free radicals from poor diet, pollution, and metabolic byproducts. Moreover, they also act to decrease inflammation linked to numerous health issues, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and autoimmune conditions.

Want a proactive way to support your body? THIS IS IT!

Here are five ways to add more antioxidants to your diet:

🍓 Colorful Fruit
Include diverse colorful fruits, smoothies, and side dishes in your daily meals. Berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, are rich in antioxidants. Citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits also offer a good dose.

🥗 Leafy Greens
Make leafy greens a staple in your salads or main dishes. Spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are excellent choices, packed with antioxidants like vitamins A and C.

🥜 Nut and Seed Mixes
Snack on a mix of nuts and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, and flaxseeds provide antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to quench oxidative damage in the body.

🍵 Herbal Teas
Replace a sugary or caffeinated beverage with an herbal tea. Green tea, chamomile, and hibiscus tea are popular choices that offer various health benefits.

🌶️ Spice it Up
Use herbs and spices liberally in your cooking. Turmeric, cinnamon, oregano, and rosemary are flavorful additions to your meals and contain antioxidant compounds.
