A healthy diet doesn't have to be hard or take extra time. The key is to be smart about your choices.
For instance, next time you're pushing a cart down the grocery aisle, think color. Vibrant, rich color. Red, for example.
Did you know that the brilliant reds that make a slice of watermelon mouth-watering or a vine-ripened tomato luscious come from lycopene, an antioxidant that may help protect against heart disease and cancer?
Plus when you add a bit of fat, say a drizzle of olive oil and some crumbled feta to that tomato, the body absorbs the lycopene more efficiently. Talk about healthy and delicious-and easy!
