Everyday Well-Being

Reach for a red fruit or vegetable.

How to do it

Today, red means "go!" Eat a red fruit or vegetable, from a simple red apple to tasty red peppers, beets, radishes, red cabbage, strawberries, cherries, or watermelon. Add cranberries to a salad, tote grape tomatoes as a snack, or even choose a more exotic alternative, such as a pomegranate or blood orange.

Why it matters

Red produce is packed with health-promoting antioxidants and beneficial nutrients such as lycopene, which can help prevent cancer, and resveratrol, which helps the heart.

Fun fact

Red peppers aren't vegetables. Botanically speaking, they're a fruit, because they contain seeds.
