CHICKEN: Chicken is best known for its high protein content, but it also provides broad nutrient support. All B vitamins are present in chicken meat, particularly high in B3 and B6. We recommend buying pasture-raised, organic chicken, as recent studies show pasture raised, organic chicken to have a substantial increase in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidant benefits.
BELL PEPPERS: High in Vitamins C, A, and B6. Bell peppers are an excellent source of carotenoids and antioxidants. They also have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body. Sweet peppers are highly sensitive to heat and their nutritional content decrease rapidly with cooking, so eat them raw or only slightly cooked.
MUSHROOMS: Most mushrooms varieties are considered adaptogens, substances that help the body adapt to stress, support normal metabolic functions and help to restore balance. Recent research has shown the mushrooms reduce the adverse side effects of addition and chemotherapy, including nausea and fatigue.
TOMATOES: High in Vitamin C and antioxidants, sundried tomatoes are also high in lycopene, considered a potential agent for the prevention of some types of cancers.
