handful broccoli
handful red seeded grapes
slice fresh pineapple
handful spinach
2 gala apples

Broccoli and other leafy green vegetables contain powerful phytochemical antioxidants in the carotenoid family called lutein and zeaxanthin, both of which are concentrated in large quantities in the lens of the eye

Quercetinis one of the most important flavonoids present in red grapes.It acts as an antioxidant by preventing the oxidized cholesterol from accumulating and it also helps in the treatment of allergies as it provides antihistamine effects

Just one cup of pineappleprovides 73% of the daily recommended amount of manganese

Served raw,spinach is a good source of vitamin C, another powerful antioxidant

Apples have pectin,the substance used to help jelly gel. Pectin lowers the LDL in the body, bad cholesterol and therefore helps vascular health and prevents coronary disease. The fiber in the apple also blocks the absorption of bad cholesterol in the colon
