Antioxidants and free radicals
Antioxidants are natural compounds that help protect the body from harmful free radicals
All fruit contain antioxidants but especially the deep-coloured fruits such as berries of all kinds (bilberries, blueberries, huckleberries and strawberries) all have compounds that help protect against cell degeneration and cancer.
Vegetables are also an excellent source of antioxidants as ongoing research into thousands of phyto-chemicals and antioxidants continue, more and more are being found in all those leafy green and cruciferous (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, kale and cabbage) veggies.

I'm Elizabeth and I love cooking! When my son was faced with many different food allergies, cooking became very challenging. Now I like to educate people about what they are putting in their mouth as well as inspire others that cooking healthy allergen friendly foods are easy and delicious.
