Eat a red fruit or vegetable today, such as apples, strawberries, red peppers, or radishes.
How to do it
When you see red today, think "Go!" and not "Stop" by putting a red fruit or veggie on your plate. Pick from fruits and vegetables such as red peppers, beets, radishes, red cabbage, strawberries, cherries, apples, or watermelon. Add cranberries to salad, tote grape tomatoes as a snack, or choose a more exotic alternative, such as a pomegranate or blood orange.
Why it matters
Red produce is packed with health-promoting antioxidants and good-for-you nutrients such as lycopene - shown to have anticancer effects - and resveratrol, which helps the heart. Tomato products in particular are high in lycopene, while red grapes score big for resveratrol.
