To complete this How-To you will need: Blueberries Brown rice Whole grain pasta Tea Almonds Vegetable juice Warning: Never change your diet without first consulting your physician. Step 1: Eat blueberries Add blueberries to breakfast cereal or yogurt, or make blueberry pancakes. Blueberries are packed with antioxidants and phytoflavinoids, as well as containing high levels of potassium and vitamin C. They can lower your risk of heart disease and cancer, and are also anti-inflammatory. Step 2: Substitute brown rice and whole grain pasta Substitute brown rice for white; or whole grain pasta for refined flour pasta or potatoes. Rice is versatile and can be added to soups and stews, used as a side dish, or in casseroles. Whole grains lower the risk of diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and obesity. Step 3: Drink tea Drink tea. Black or green, hot or iced, tea is a great source of antioxidants. Instead of sugary soda, have unsweetened iced tea. Green tea contains ECGC, which is not only a powerful antioxidant, but can also inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Tip
