Red is one of my favorite colors and I always associate it with something vibrant and wonderful so it would only make sense that eating the below super foods can lower your risk of hear disease and certain cancers.
Give These Red Foods A try For A Healthier You!
Raspberries-A Dutch study found that these can have more than eight times the heart-healthy antioxidants of broccoli.
Strawberries-Having at least a cup a week may make you less likely to have elevated C-reactive protein, a heart disease risk factor.
Tomatoes-A diet rich in tomatoes may be linked to a lower risk of lung and breast cancer.
Red Wine-Antioxidants found in red wine help to protect the lining of blood vessels, guarding against heart disease, research suggests. Just keep it to no more than one glass a day.
Red Peppers-Just a half cup fills your daily needs for vitamin C an antioxidant that may help prevent cancer.
Kidney Beans-High in protein and iron, these are also packed with fiber, which can help lower cholesterol.
Beets-These sweet veggies may help prevent colon cancer. Saute in olive oil or steam them for a colorful side dish.

I can pretty much go for all of these except the beets. I have some aversion to beets but the others all seem delicious so give these a try and be good to yourself!
