Six kinds of health food recommended in summer

These fruits and vegetables are in season now (which means off-the-charts deliciousness) and deliver maximum health benefits.

Blueberries: The Indigo-Colored Antioxidant

Why: These berries-one of the few foods that are naturally blue-have sky-high levels of antioxidants, which combat the damage done by inflammation. Anthocyanins, the natural plant compounds that give blueberries their deep color, may have antidiabetic effects as well.

Red Bell Peppers: A Sweet, Crunchy Punch of Vitamin C

Why: While all peppers are very low in calories (about 25 per cup), reds-which taste sweeter and milder-are best for you. They contain 11 times more beta-carotene than green bell peppers, and while the green variety delivers 60 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C, red gives you 240 percent.

How: Roast them in big batches for salads, grilled cheese sandwiches and snacking later (they'll keep for a few weeks in the fridge). Or try them in vegetarian sloppy joes or sautéed with ginger, garlic and chili for a vibrant side.

Tomatoes: The Summer Heart, Skin and Brain Protector

Why: Lycopene is highest in very red tomatoes; the antioxidant has a long list of benefits, from protecting skin against the sun's burning rays, to slowing arterial aging, to fighting heart disease, stroke, memory loss and impotence, say Drs. Roizen and Oz.

How: It takes 165 raw tomatoes to equal the health perks of just 10 tablespoons of tomato sauce; this easy recipe works as well on pasta as it does as a hot or chilled soup. If you want to enjoy tomatoes raw, try combining them with watermelon in a gorgeous (and gluten-free) salad.


Watermelon: A Pick-Me-Up with Added Benefits

Why: Aside from its ability to refresh us, watermelon also delivers lycopene. And a recent study led by food scientists at Florida State University suggests it can be an effective weapon against prehypertension, a precursor to cardiovascular disease.

How: A smoothie made with watermelon, coconut water, lime juice and mint leaves is an ideal cooler on a hot day. Also try serving wedges of the fruit at cocktail hour with a light sprinkling of shaved Pecorino Romano and black pepper, or put it on skewers with shrimp and grill.

Beets: Colorful Guards Against Cancer and High Blood Pressure

Why: They contain several disease-fighting phytonutrients, including the pigment betacyanin, which gives them their distinctive hue. Beets are also a good source of folate, which guards against birth defects, colon cancer and osteoporosis, and are high in fiber and beta-carotene. And a study in the journal Hypertension showed that beet juice reduced participants' blood pressure.

How: If you think you don't like beets, try pairing them with contrasting ingredients. That can be a salty, creamy cheese (e.g., goat or blue), toasted nuts (e.g., walnuts or almonds)-or both, as in this Roasted Beet Salad with Arugula, Pistachios and Goat Cheese. Another idea: this delicious dip for potato chips that also makes a nice accompaniment to steak.

Figs: Jammed with Fiber, Calcium...and Jam-Like Flavor

Why: Used for millennia in ancient Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cultures, figs are an excellent source of dietary fiber (almost 2 grams each). They're also a good source of calcium and potassium.

How: Figs make a lovely addition to a cheese platter. You can also thread the fruits onto rosemary branches and grill them, or use them to make a sauce for salmon.

I agree with you. Health is an essential part of our life, in other words, our whole life even a single moment of our life is depends on our health or fitness level and the best source of fitness is to used herbs and plants in our food as it is used in the old ages, even they cure the diseases by herbs as few of people used today i.e Hakeem for Mardana Kamzori. Normal things are used for treatments or fitness but unfortunately, we don't know about it due to the lack of knowledge i.e Garlic is used as a food and as a medicine. The normal garlic (Allium sativum) is around the year in almost every shop to get. The spirits divide the smell, but the health effect of garlic is undisputed. Even when cooking, everyone knows something with the white tuber catch. For a long time, the spicy ingredient is no longer appreciated only in the kitchen of hot countries, where garlic from time immemorial came on the plate because of its antibacterial property. Spaghetti "Aglio e Olio", a fresh zaziki or a touch of garlic in the tomato sauce are also an indispensable part of many food plans. By the way, the term "garlic" does not apply at all. It is rather an onion , which is composed of many individual toes.
