Tip Tuesday – Fall Foods Rich in Antioxidants

Fall brings beauty, cooler temps, an abundance of seasonal foods… and yep, things like colds, allergies, and all that other jazz.

Now, if you are like me, your allergies get worse every year, starting earlier in the season and extending further each year, so I try to get all the boosts I can in addition to a fairly sensible lifestyle (but like anyone else, I am not perfect and am always a work in progress!)

Seasonal foods rich in antioxidants give a nice boost! Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which prevents them from damaging healthy cells and causing inflammation that leads to chronic illnesses.

Do you have any favorite recipes using some of these?
