Boost Antioxidants At Any Meal

"Herbs and spices can deliver just as much disease-fighting
punch as fruits and veggies, says Cheryl Forberg, RD, author
of Positively Ageless. Here's how to add low-calorie flavor
while dramatically boosting your antioxidant intake.

Tarragon, fresh, add to scrambled eggs.
Oregano, dried, add to tomato bruschetta
or chicken breast marinated in olive oil and garlic.
Cloves, ground, add to mashed sweet potatoes or
acorn squash.
Cinnamon, ground, add to oatmeal, french toast,
or applesauce.
Thyme, fresh, add to fresh orange slices with black
pepper and olive oil.
Sage, fresh, add to GF cornbread and stuffings.
Turmeric, add to curries or salad with chickpeas
and currants."
