Fill Yourself with AnTiOxidAnTs

Today I had a smaller plateful of strawberries and raspberries, so I thought i'd blog about them. I love berries in general because they are sweet, have a sugary taste, but still make me feel good.
Much research has proven that fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes (beans and peas), and grains have high amounts of those powerful, disease preventing antioxidants (also called...phytochemicals, flavonoids, carotenoids, etc.) Diseases like...heart disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, ya know, those preventable ones.

Try adding one serving of these a day into your routine. P.s.. they're going out of season, so don't wait:)
