I eat lots of canned pumpkin (use it in baked goods and other desserts), lots of cinnamon, and lots of swiss chard (I grow it and often just toss the young leaves into salads raw, and my SO won't eat spinach so I use swiss chard in any recipe that calls for spinach). I also do pretty good on cabbage and tumeric (I have a number of ethnic recipes that use turmeric).
I go through phases with beets--sometimes I eat a lot of beets, sometimes I don't. It all just depends on what's on the menu for the week. Same thing for sardines and pumpkin seeds.
I never drink beverages with calories and I can't believe there's not a way to get the same benefits pomegranate juice offers that involves eating actual food (like, a pomegranate, for example). Besides, my blood pressure does NOT need to be any lower; it would be good if it were a little higher.
Same for dried fruit--I just see it as a waste of precious calories. How is that a plum wouldn't have the same antioxidents as a prune, if they are both the same fruit? I eat lots of plums.
I don't eat frozen blueberries, but I eat fresh berries every day. I have to believe fresh is better than frozen.
Here are a couple of great recipes that use Tumeric:
- Moroccan Chickpea Chili with Chicken
- Chicken with Chickpeas
