    Default Top 20 antioxidant foods

    Antioxidant-Rich Foods
    from the South Beach diet
    Trying to maximize your intake of disease-fighting antioxidants? The following 20 foods are loaded with antioxidants.

    1. Pomegranates
    2. Green peppers
    3. Kale
    4. Red kidney beans
    5. Pinto beans
    6. Blueberries
    7. Cranberries
    8. Artichokes (cooked)
    9. Blackberries
    10. Garlic
    11. Raspberries
    12. Strawberries
    13. Apples
    14. Spinach
    15. Pecans
    16. Sweet cherries
    17. Brussel sprouts
    18. Yellow squash
    19. Black beans (dried)
    20. Plums

    Antioxidants are naturally occurring nutrients that help prevent heart disease, cancer, and aging. Scientists believe that some antioxidants are more potent than others, and their potency can be affected by how they're cooked or how they're digested. For example, the antioxidants in blueberries lose their potency when cooked, while the antioxidants in tomatoes become more potent when cooked. So even though this list is a good guide for finding antioxidant-rich foods, it's best to hedge your nutritional bets by eating a wide variety of items.

    That was awesome list, PB!
    And I love all those foods from your list- I eat less pecans and Black beans lately, but I have at least 4 to 10 of those items you mentioned every day.
    I love fruits and tomatoes and garlic!

    Alice hon, it's nothing like I'm bragging/being proud...I had nothing to do with it....My mom is more of a meat person, my brother is the same.

    Mom says it has to do with me being on my auntie's farm,on and off, from 6 months to 5 years(My bro was very sick, so auntie had me lots of times while they were at docs and spas and such).So, mom reckons I was left wild in the berries lot, in the fruit trees, in the carrots patches and auntie had loads of everything growing- bless her- so she says I made a habit of eating fruits /vegs daily, associate it with good memories from that period and it stuck with me.
    Plus we had vineyards and another uncle with farms...so I allways had opportunities to be around this fruit/veg stuff.
