Every day our bodies produce substances called free radicals; over time, the damage they do to our healthy cells contributes to aging and chronic diseases like heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes and cancers.
Free radicals are a result of normal body functions directly related to our diet, lifestyle and environment. The good news: good nutrition — including plenty of antioxidants (nutrients like vitamins A, C and E, selenium, carotenoids and flavonoids) — can help neutralize their effects and reduce the damage.
More good news: Colorful fruits and veggies are packed with antioxidant compounds! The more vibrant the color, the more antioxidants wait inside. Eat a variety of antioxidant-rich foods to get the full benefit of each — that’s where “eat a rainbow” comes from.
Greens like spinach, kale and chard are packed with vitamins A and E, and carotenoids like lutein, zeaxanthin and lycopene to support your immune system. Our organic baby versions are washed and ready to use — no wonder they’re called super foods!
Veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are versatile recipe workhorses, packing plenty of antioxidants into crunchy, colorful and delicious packages — enjoy them raw in salads and snacks, or roasted in the oven for deeper, richer flavor.
