The best food sources of antioxidants are those plant foods that are richly colored. The darker the pigment, the more antioxidants the foods contain. Antioxidants help with the cells’ natural damaging caused by free radicals, those substances that are in junk foods, pollution, and other unnatural sources of energy for the body.
Pomegranate seeds, blueberries, dark leafy greens are examples of foods rich in antioxidants. Extra dark chocolate, green beans, and kale are also examples of foods rich in antioxidants. As you can see, some bitter foods like dark chocolate, kale, and pomegranate are especially rich in antioxidants. The tannins, which are the bitter and acidic properties contain some pretty powerful antioxidants. Darker and even odd colored foods, like purple (plums, berries, eggplant, heirloom cauliflower) have a potent punch to the "bad guys" living in and around the body.
Plant food does a body good! Grandma was right in her advice to "eat your vegetables."
