Beets: Think of them as “red spinach”; eat them raw, grated in a salad.
Cabbage: Nutrient dense, serve on burgers and sandwiches
Swiss chard: Leafy green, great sautéed in olive oil and garlic.
Cinnamon: Reputed to reduce cholesterol and control blood sugar; on oatmeal, of course, but also in your coffee.
Pomegranate juice: Antioxidant.
Dried plums: Another antioxidant snack.
Pumpkin seeds: Loaded with magnesium; great roasted, on salad.
Sardines: Dr. Bowden calls them “health food in a can.” Mashed on buttered toast.
Turmeric: The “superstar of spices” may have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. In scrambled eggs or in any vegetable dish.
Frozen blueberries: Available year-round and they don’t spoil; associated with better memory in animal studies. Blended into yogurt or chocolate soy milk and sprinkle with crushed almonds.
Canned pumpkin: A low-calorie, high fiber vegetable with immune-stimulating vitamin A; filling, but few calories.
Mix with a little butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.
