We recommend adding as many to your day as possible
How do you fit 10 different types of nutrients into only 3 meals a day? Take this list to the grocery store or use it when meal planning for the week! Have green tea on your morning commute to help reverse the effects of sun damage. Add flax seeds and almonds to your oatmeal to get your vitamin E and omega-fatty acids.
For lunch, try having a spinach salad with tuna, tomatoes, and carrots in order to eat your vitamin A, selenium, and lycopen. Finally, try sweet potatoes and cook your choice of protein in safflower oil for dinner. Do you like eating dessert? Who doesn’t? Try dark chocolate to get your dose of flavonols.
