Yum! Dig into these holiday superfoods
Nab a few spoonfuls of whole-berry sauce for a whopping dose of vitamin C and phytonutrients that act as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and anti-carcinogens.
This one gets our vote for Christmas dinner! It’s packed with lean protein and is a pretty good source of omega-3 fats, too. Bonus? Lots of B vitamins, as well. Go ahead, have seconds.
Grab the nutcracker and get crackin’, babe! Keep the skin on these so-good-for-you snacks—it’s rich in phenols, which are known for their antioxidant properties. Eat up for loads of vitamin E (great for your heart) and omega-3 fats (the great kind!).
You know that scene in Little Women where Amy covets the fresh oranges? It’s not just ‘cause she hasn’t had one in awhile—they’re also wicked good for you. One orange packs all the vitamin C you need for the day (goodbye, influenza!), plus folate, vitamin B1, potassium, calcium and more.
If you’re not pumpkin-ed out by now, volunteer to bake a pumpkin pie for dessert or a batch of muffins for a sweet holiday breakfast. Just a cup-full of pumpkin contains more than 200 percent your daily recommended allotment of vitamin A (which helps your vision), has tons of fiber (which keeps you fuller, longer) and the antioxidant beta-carotene.
