Just about everybody these days has heard about antioxidants. But where do they come from, and what to they do, exactly? First, antioxidants are richly abundant in many fruits and vegetables. Dark-colored berries, in particular, have a good supply. Antioxidants have an amazing effect on the cells in the human body: they actually slow damage and destruction caused by free radicals that are always circulating, looking for cells to “pick on.” A healthy serving of food containing antioxidants can be like putting an invisible, protective shield in your system! And if you do this regularly, according to a smart food plan, the benefits will really pay off healthwise. Michelle K. from California makes it easy and delicious with her Triple Berry Salad with Cottage Cheese.
