Do You Eat Foods High In Antioxidants?

Here is the “Top 20 Foods High in Antioxidants”, voted by The USDA… tested over 100 foods from all categories and developed an authoritative list of the Top 20:

Foods high in antioxidants usually have health benefits such as good amounts of fiber and vitamins.  Although the report does not say anything about eating organic fruits and vegetables, I feel in order to get the most health benefits, you should.  The main thing to remember is to reach for a variety of fruits and vegetables in the darkest colors possible, such as reds and purples, which seem to carry the highest levels of antioxidants.  It is important to not just eat the same foods every day, since the variety of foods will help how they are absorbed and used by the body.  Also, make sure to keep the skin or peel on, especially on apples and potatoes, to get the most antioxidant value.
