					2. Green tea. In a nutshell, people who drink green tea have about a
dozen health advantages over people who do not—from cancer prevention to
longevity to gentler skin aging—thanks to its antioxidant polyphenols.
Organic green tea is preferable (nothing undoes positive health effects
like a load of pesticides) and can be found in bulk for cheap at large
grocery stores.
3. Broccoli. This is the item on the list you'd be best off learning to
love if you don't already, because its nutrition profile beats out all
other veggies according to a Harvard University study. It has well-
documented anti-inflammatory effects, which can help with everything from
eye health and arthritis to heart disease and sun damage. Eat it a couple
of nights a week if you can. A favorite simple recipe is broccoli steamed
with olive oil, salt, and garlic.
4. Salmon. You obviously want to be careful about sourcing when it comes
to any fish choice—check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium's new
recommendations for salmon here—but the short version is, wild Alaskan is
a good bet. Salmon is loaded with anti-inflammatory omega 3s, healthy
fats, and vitamin B12. Bonus side effect: Glowing skin.
5. Extra virgin olive oil. It’s gotta be EV: Eat it for heart-disease
prevention, cancer prevention, its cholesterol-lowering good fats, its
antioxidants, and because it’s completely and utterly delicious and
frankly, a good olive oil tastes better than butter.
6. Dark leafy greens.Yes, they can be bitter and less than exciting at
first, but they are loaded with vitamins and iron and can be snuck into
meals easily (omelets, pasta, salads, etc.). Prepared the same way as the
broccoli suggestion takes five minutes and is super tasty with eggs for
breakfast.
