1. Olives

Olives contain phytonutrients and polyphenols –compounds that support your DNA. On top of that, they contain calcium and red-blood-cell-supporting iron. Olives are said to help heart health as well. 

2. Red bell pepper

Red bell peppers are packed with antioxidants, carotenoids, and vitamin C. Vitamin C is paramount to support the collagen production process. On top of that, bell peppers have an anti-inflammatory effect. 

3. Blueberries

Blueberries are rich in vitamins C and A and another powerful antioxidant called anthocyanin. This compound can protect you from pollution, sun damage and prevents collagen loss. 

Focus on including these meals, rather than restricting other types of food.  

4. Avocado

Avocados are a powerhouse of antioxidants. They contain a lot of fatty acids that are great to fight inflammation, on top of that, they contain vitamins A, E a, C and K. Another way in which they can protect you from skin damage, is that they are packed with carotenoids,

5. Spinach

Spinach is packed with antioxidants and other healthy nutrients such as magnesium, vitamins K, E, C, and A, and lutein. 

Focus on including these meals, rather than restricting other types of food. I find that trying to include more meals instead of avoiding eating others, is easier in the long term.
