Functional Foods: Are you consuming enough?

Functional foods are items that are loaded with antioxidants in the form of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, probiotics and prebiotics, fiber, soy protein, and phytosterols.  These additional bioactive components enhance our health by assisting us in the fight against disease.  Functional foods are best consumed on a daily basis as part of a varied eating plan.  Start small by loading up on cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, collards, kale, kohrabi and cauliflower!  These cruciferous vegetables are high in soluble fiber and vitamin-C! 

Fight the winter chill with functional foods!
