Antioxidants eat all your colors
Antioxidants: Eat All Your Colors!
By now everyone knows the blueberry contains very high levels of antioxidants. But, don't ignore all the other colorful foods out there loaded with antioxidants.

Antioxidants are all the rage today. And, justifiably so. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals which cause cell damage, which ultimately can lead to diseases of the heart and cancer. It seems everywhere you go its blueberry this and blueberry that. You have your choice of wild blueberry juice, blueberry-pomegranate juice, blueberry-cranberry juice and so on and so on.
Now, dont get me wrong. I love blueberries. But, in our rush to embrace the latest antioxidant food craze (blueberries, cranberries, pomegranates) were ignoring some very high-antioxidant foods that are probably sitting ignored in our cupboards.
What? You ask, What could possibly be higher in antioxidants than my beloved wild blueberry? Well, how about the small red bean? Thats right, I said bean. The small red bean actually has more antioxidants per serving size than the wild blueberry. And the red kidney bean and pinto bean have more antioxidants per serving size than a serving of cultivated blueberries.
