Color Your Diet Healthy with Fruits and Vegetables
Smart choices: Kiwi, broccoli, romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, cabbage, honeydew, avocados
Simple substitution: Use spinach in your salad instead of iceberg lettuce.
Health benefits: Green veggies contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that protect eyesight and reduce your risk of developing macular degeneration, an incurable eye disease that can lead to blindness. Broccoli, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables contain compounds known as isothiocyanates, which may have anti-cancer properties.
