Food Facts

www.ironmanmagazine.comKetchup has health benefits, like reducing your risk of colon cancer, according to the December ’12 Prevention. No, that’s not a license to eat French fries. Use it on your eggs or grass-fed beef. And go for the organic ketchup, if you can. Ketchup made with organically grown tomatoes has up to 60 percent more of the tomatoes’ important antioxidants.

Dates pack an antioxidant wallop! According to the November ’12 Bottom Line Health, “These little fruits are sweet enough to qualify as dessert but have more antioxidants per serving than oranges, grapes and even broccoli.” Try a few with your morning coffee. Delicious.

Pepper may help ward off bodyfat. According to the November ’12 Health, “Piperine, a core component of the spice, impedes the body’s process of forming fat.” Using pepper derails fat cell development and growth. Use it on your food throughout the day to get the lean-machine benefits.

Fruits and vegetables are important to your immune system. Want proof? A study published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that women treated for cancer had a 50 percent reduction in relapse risk if they ate five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
